Why do shoppers fight each other on Black Friday? I can't figure out the rationale behind these behaviors. What do these people do: punch each other out to get the "precious" package and then give it to someone as a gift with the intention of "peace on earth and goodwill to men?" I couldn't believe what I was seeing on the news. Half of me wanted to crack up laughing at the stupidity and the other half wanted to weep for the apparent decline in basic civility. I wonder if any of these people feel remorse after pounding someone out so that they can give someone the item they've taken from them. It makes me sad to think people are forgetting what the spirit of Christmas is all about. Oh shit, is it o.k. to say Christmas? Damn, things were so simple before.
