Whilst flipping channels this arvo:
I came across a news interview in a department store
Some heavily made-up blonde with a microphone was
talking to "a random shopper" struggling with an
overloaded shopping cart who, when prompted, admitted
that she was still shopping since Thanksgiving Day, and
that this wasn't the only store she'd visited (so far)
she quickly volunteered that she'd just come from
similarly filling 3 such carts @ Target's and 2 more @
(didn't catch the name of the store) before that! grin


leaving (cynical) me to speculate that she probablly
WASN'T a Waitress nor a Walmart employee...neither
was Hubby a wrench jerker @ the local service station.

Another reason NOT to shop at all ....or shop on-line !!

What's the killer is they're doing this for cheaper prices.... however the stores will have to hire extra security for all the crazies... so there goes the cheaper prices !! laugh

they took all the trees, and put em in a tree museum
And they charged the people a dollar and a half to see them
No, no, no
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you got 'til it's gone
They paved paradise, and put up a parking lot cry

That was relevant, but this is the link I meant to post.

Same heart warming message.

The people in these malls are worse than animals behaving like this. It is only merchandise so what! Stabbing people and throwing them down what has the states become ?

Obviously Wal-Mart is for the maniacs and desperate people.
Also for the people who are struggling to make ends meet and put food on the table... so a few dollars saved is paramount.

On the flip side...we went to Kohls at 8:00 on Turkey day.
We had already left the family feast/gathering so it didn't impinge on our celebration.

We showed up 5 minutes before opening (took about 6 minutes to get everyone inside).... bought $380 of stuff valued at nearly double and they gave us $15.00 of "Kohl Cash" coupon for every 50 we spent.. so we ended up with a cash coupon of $105 to be spent between Dec 2-9.

Nearly $700 in merch and when you subtract the $105 Kohls cash it's about $275.00
New comforter set looks great on the bed too!

No fights... no yelling. People seemed friendly and were enjoying shopping for deals. The worst thing that happened was that there weren't enough shopping carts to go around.
