Friday’s sales

I saw things on Friday when out shopping with my sister that I’ve never seen. We left my house at 4:00 Friday morning. The stores we wanted to shop opened at 5:00, 6:00, and 7:00. First we went to Wal-Mart. My sister wanted to get something in the electronics dept. for her daughter. We got there at 4:25. People were lined up at the front door and at the garden center door. When the doors opened at 5:00, people rushed in. I actually saw people running as if the hounds of hell were chasing them. I saw one lady grab about 7 Cabbage Patch dolls & take off running at full speed thru the store. It was so funny. I thought I was going to fall down from laughing so hard at her.

When my sister was in the electronics department, one lady was trying to leave, and since it was so crowded, accidentally brushed against the lady next to my sister. The lady who got bumped shouted BITCH!! at her and punched her in the back. The other lady turned around & they started fist fighting.. in the electronics section.. of Wal-Mart.. at 5:10am. Unbelievable. No Christmas gift is worth a fist fight in the electronics department of Wal-Mart, ya know?

When my sister’s husband called (he was working at a store close to where they live), he told us that management had to call the police to break up several fights in the parking lot of the Wal-Mart.. before the store had even opened.

What is it with the frenzy of Wal-Mart shoppers? Why would they feel the need to fight? Where is their stinking Christmas spirit? Good grief.

After that, we went to several more stores over the course of the day. My sister has almost all of her Christmas shopping done. I need to buy about 5 more things & I’ll be finished.

I got a new (fake) tree.. a pre-lit one. I love the idea & smell of a real tree, but cannot have one b/c of oldest daughter’s allergies & asthma.
