Joshua Short, a reporter for WNDU in South Bend, Indiana, was really pumped about his first Black Friday live shot, so you can only imagine his disappointment when he was met with no lines or crowds at the local mall.
At first, Short thought he would be doing the spot from inside, but turns out he was "stuck outside" and definitely was not happy about that "whole rigmarole!" Then, to make standing out in the cold worse, he was standing out there practically alone because there were no lines of people waiting to shop!
"I got up at three o'clock to do my first Black Friday and ain't nobody here," exclaimed Short. "I am literally upset right now!"
Short was ready to call it quits and go back to bed when another reporter back in the studio told him he may be at the wrong side of the mall, to which Short only replied saying there would probably be the same situation there too. Short then walks out of frame and is done.
Luckily enough for Short, he later was able to explain and laugh at the situation and no, he was not fired!
We all get to laugh, Short keeps his job, and people did not deal with crowds on Black Friday, everybody wins!
