I have never understood why a people would allow themselves to be regularly herded into these stores like milk-cows, to be milked by Farmer John. Being the dumb animals that they are, at least cows have an excuse. The people that are willing to degrade themselves in such a manner for the opportunity to purchase junk, are IMHO borderline in-breds.
When I realized the sales were for items I didn’t need,I didn’t go!
ONE time got up really early and went with a friend for the computer special only to find a long line already there 90 minutes before opening.Said line well exceed the quota of special priced computers.Said to myself:”never again”.
Now if I was in the market for new major appliances then getting 30% at Sears or Big Box Stores,Inc. would be worth the hassle.
Who cares? People like to shop. It's fun for a lot of people and they like to make a day of it and search for deals. Some folks like the crowds, energy and excitement. Big deal. What is the point of all this criticism and condescension?
Personally I do all the my shopping online since I hate going to the stores and waiting in lines, but I see no reason to criticize others who feel differently about it.
