Family Gets An Award For Being “First In Nation To Get In Line For Black Friday Sales”, All Signs Point To An Idiot

November 19, 2010

St. Petersburg, Florida — Forget just being first in line. These folks are the first in the nation to start camping out at a Best Buy store in search of Black Friday deals.

The Davenport family pitched a pair of tents Wednesday at 10 a.m. in front of the Best Buy at Tyrone Square in St. Pete to snag deals that were still nine days away.

That made them the first people to start camping out at a Best Buy store anywhere in the country. To put that in perspective: there are more than 1,000 Best Buy stores in the United States.

So the manager of the Tyrone Square Best Buy will join the Davenports on Friday, November 19 — a week before the big deal day — to present them with an award.

Women Tries To Sell Grandbaby For Chevy Malibu, Not The Best Buy

November 8, 2010

It happened in the parking lot of a Best Buy, but there was nothing good about the sale taking place: a Holly Hill woman handing her 8-week-old grandson over to a stranger in exchange for $30,000.Patty Bigbee, 45, originally offered the child for $75,000 before agreeing to a lower price, according to the Daytona Beach News-Journal.

Bigbee and her boyfriend, 42-year-old Lawrence Work, arrived at the Daytona Beach store to meet the buyer Friday afternoon and began unloading a stroller and toys. Police waited until the child was safe in his new car seat before taking the pair into custody.The boy is now in the care of the Department of Children and Families.

“This transaction today was: ‘Take this baby, give us our money and go.'”

Bigbee is the boy’s maternal grandmother, and had custody of the child for the last few weeks while her daughter was incarcerated on unrelated charges. Police say she and Work had recently purchased a new Chevy Malibu, and the motive for selling the baby was largely financial.

The strange Chevy Malibu was taken into custody with Bigbee. Bigbee insisted it was for the kids.
