The busiest shopping day of the year is notorious for catfights between scavenging shoppers over prized gift items, but it doesnt have to get bloody according to self-defense expert Marc Animal MacYoung, who has tips for surviving Black Friday.
He says if someone tries to snatch an item from your shopping cart, its important to not let the monkey out.
Instead, calmly but firmly place your hands on the item and let them know its spoken for.
If they try to get physical, make the deadliest threat you can by saying, Dont make me put down my coffee.
Should the aggressive snatcher still get in your face, then its time to act knowing youre safe from a lawsuit.
MacYoung says, If you break their nose, they have no one else to blame because you gave them warning. You covered your ass.
