Most Black Friday shoppers pick up a few extra items as they browse retailers. One man, however, returned home with far less than he should have.

In 2012, at a Kmart in Springfield, Mass., a man went into the store searching for a flat-screen television. Unfortunately, he left his girlfriend's 2-year-old son in the backseat of his car while he shopped at 1:30 a.m. Although he did find a bargain-worthy TV, he abandoned the sleeping boy -- and his car -- in the Kmart parking lot.

Police later found the man at home apparently watching his new big-screen TV. They were unsure how he was able to transport it home without his car [source: Caron].
