Utterly Horrified and Speechless

I was feeling very proud of myself for being jolly and stress-free all holiday weekend (well, not stress-free, but I WAS able to let a lot go), when I came across THIS. Honestly, I don't know who could read this and not be completely depressed. What is wrong with people??

People have lost their minds. I had heard about this incident but did not know until now that someone actually died from this stampede! WHO ARE THESE WACK JOBS? This is truly mind-blowing and depressing. I mean, we are in a recession people, make some cards, do something handmade, frame a picture, just mellow out and calm the EF DOWN!

Isn't that crazy? What is wrong with people?

I know, I heard about that on the news. I was at Wal-mart this morning and it was crowded, but people were really nice. We were all working together to find the pj sizes everyone needed. It's sad and scary when people get that berserk.

yep. I had to do a post on it tonight. The more I'm around people, the more I love my dog.

Besides, they weren't even there to save money. They were just there to further run up their charge cards with no intent to pay them off. With morals like that, what's a few massacred people along the way. sick, sick, sick

Love my dog, love my dog, love my dog.

I hope they enjoy their cheap flat screen t.v.s - I weep for the future of this country...

A soccer riot at Walmart. Hard to fathom.

This is why I avoid Black Friday like the plague. I had to shop on Black Friday once years ago (stepdaughter was in town, leaving the next day, and wanted to show me what she wanted for Christmas). I almost lost it in the parking lot, forget about the stores.

Online shopping's where it's at.

That is so sad and makes me so angry. People are idiots, plain and simple. OK, they are greedy, uncaring idiots. UGH.

ok, now I dont feel like decorating today.

Heard about this last night and was completely disgusted. All that for Christmas presents? Completely not worth it!

Lorie said...

I read that and it is so sad. I hope they are able to find the people responsible (they are screening the security tapes).

It is so sad!

Total tragedy to which I have no words.

DysFUNctional Mom said...

That is just part of the reason that I don't do Black Friday shopping. I just can't be a part of that madness. It's just horrible.

What a sad way to end a Thanksgiving weekend!!

I almost had an experience like that a few years ago..Scared me spitless. Have not attempted again!

Wendyburd1 said...

thats horrible!!

Lindsay said...

It's sad and ridiculous. Nothing is that important to buy that someone has to get shot or die over it. I try to stay far, far away from Black Friday. Not my thing AT ALL.

Girl Friday said...

GREED. And a total lack of courtesy. Made me sick to read this and even more sad to realize no one will be held accountable for their inhumane behavior.

Ugh.

It was probably someone in their scooter, too fat and lazy to walk thru Walmart. Hope they stop doing that cheap early stuff. What about us nooners? We need breaks, too!
