The Worst of America

People, if you think a low price on a crappy no-name flat screen TV or a shitty laptop is worth stepping on an elderly woman, you're freaking insane. Shame on all you stupid, greedy, violent bastards. And shame on the retailers who encourage your stupid, greedy, violent behavior.

Guess I'll have company in Hell, eh?

Amen, hon. No TV is worth that garbage. No way. No how.

Hey look, I can comment now!

I tried not to go shopping today; don't know whether going to the auto dealer for a recall repair counts. I choose to think not.

I hope I'm not out of line in suggesting this place:
A Greater Gift
to those of you interested in avoiding the cattle runs of Christmas shopping...

I can understand the allure for people who want to surprise their families with something they couldn't otherwise afford, but they aren't the only ones out shopping and the idea you'd have to physically struggle with people to get stuff is just... offensive is the word that comes to mind... and sickening.

It's like Shop Til You Drop meets riots on a nationwide scale. There's nothing I want that badly.

Gina - that's SO the way to do it. Avoid the thundering, freaky herd *and* go with a buddy.
