This totally boggles my mind:
At a Wal-Mart outside Nashville, the doors opened at 5 a.m. yesterday, with customers surrounding a wooden pallet piled high with $50 digital picture frames at the front of the store.
Worried that the frames would sell out, Cindy Chavez, 36, braced herself, yelped and tossed her body on top of the pile, much to her fellow shoppersâ€™ horror. She emerged from the scrum with six frames.
I like “stuff” just as much (and to see my house, some would say MORE) than others but there is nothing that would make me wait a bizillion hours in line and then throw myself on a pile of whatever just to get some. Really. There is nothing out there that would lure me to stand in line at 4am in the hope of getting my hands on it. I dunno. Maybe if I had a kid and all they wanted was a Wii (whatever that is and the name just sounds goofy), I might but even then, I doubt it.
It may be my incredible hatred of crowds, chaos and general commotion that keeps me away but I’ve never been one for this kind of thing and, in fact, compels me to run the other way screaming like a banshee. Just UGH.
And speaking of things I wouldn’t do – let’s add this: sit through the movie “Knocked up” – OH. MY. GOD. I am just too old to find any of that humorous. I feel like a crotchety old lady saying this but it was just vulgar. (This, from a woman who watched “The Sopranos” religiously, even!) I’m glad I paid a mere 99 cents from Amazon for it because I spent 31 minutes watching it, was offended and horrified and realized I had better things to do with my time (like cleaning. And y’all know how I feel about cleaning!!). It was just plain god-awful!
Well on her way to being a old lady with 10000 cats screaming “You kids get off my lawn”
