The Spirit of "What The Hades"

What the hades is up with people?

I get it. We live in a capitalistic society, but people have gone crazy. Why on earth would you weight (i know i spelled it wrong, but its kind of a themed post) outside walmart/best buy/target/toys 'r us/etc... for hours in the freezing cold, just to get christmas presents?


I was with some friends last night and drove by a couple of those stores listed above and it was insane. People were lined up for well over 200 yards. I guess i just don't understand what goes through their minds. The desire to save a buck turns soccer moms into end-of-days psychopath mongers of product. I don't really know what that means, but it sounded good.

I guess i'm just out of the loop. Maybe it's because i'm so dang wealthy, i just don't care to save that extra dollar. Anyway, just something to think about. Don't go crazy during the holiday season.

amen. i've made it my whole life (which you continually remind me is getting to be quite a lengthy bit of time) without participating in the black friday phenomenon...besides, i can shop from the comfort of my own home in my pj's no less and order stuff online if i really wanted to or felt the need to shop. there's just nothing that i need/want that badly to make me go out on black friday.....kind of ironic since i'm a capitalist.

The sad thing about it is that people although waiting and freezing outside, last year they killed a man in a stampede. He was a poor maintenance man. People need to be careful for other people!
