So with all the kiddies pushed off on some poor uncle for an early matinee, I'm taking a mommy-moment. Hmmmm...what shall I do with my free time? Well, there's the computer right there; beckoning with its sleek 21st century wiles and little blinking light. It's so pretty and inviting. So here I am!
Plus, I couldn't possibly make it through the rest of weekend without blogging about this friggin' story , which has worked my normally comfy panties in a big-ass bunch!
Something is seriously wrong when someone has to die so a bunch of idiots can get their hot-little hands on some damn door-buster cardigans! These are Christmas shoppers? Does anyone even know the meaning of Christmas anymore? What the hell happened to peace on earth and gooodwill toward men? Anyone seen those around lately? The thing that hit me hardest about this story was this quote from an eye-witness to the tragedy…
“When they were [told] they had to leave, that an employee got killed, people were yelling, ‘I’ve been on line since yesterday morning,’ ” … “They kept shopping.” -- NY Times
Seriously, people? And for what? Oh excuse me... these deals are unbeatable...
Items on sale at the Wal-Mart store included a $798 Samsung 50-inch Plasma HDTV, a Bissel Compact Upright Vacuum for $28, a Samsung 10.2 megapixel digital camera for $69 and DVDs such as "The Incredible Hulk" for $9.-- Fox News
Christmas morning will be extra-special when little Johnny opens his new Hulk DVD, and squeals with delight. And when he watches it time and time again for about a week before tossing it into his pile of other watched movies, someone can feel really nice that Jdimytai Damour, age 34, certainly did not die in vain.
There are truly no words for this story. But then again; greedy, selfish, heartless, thoughtless and ignorant do come to mind. Feel free to add some of your own.
