NEW YORK (Nov. 28) - A Wal-Mart worker was killed Friday after an "out of control" throng of shoppers eager for post-Thanksgiving bargains broke down the doors at a suburban store and knocked him to the ground, police said.
So sad.....how could people be so inconsiderate that they could be so inconsiderate about someone's well being......
with all the advancement in technology, medicine, (to name but a few) someone should invent a wake up and be considerate to each other pill !!!!
I understand the person killed was trying to "protect" a woman who was 8 months pregnant. What the heck was she doing out shopping?
Having worked retail for a good number of years I have to say :
#1 Glad I am out of it.
#2 People are pigs
#3 As usual, it is all about the all mighty $$$
Having said that, I do think it is stupid that now our legislators want to make laws concerning shopping as well. If anything, ban the stores from opening in the middle of the night so the poor store employees can enjoy the holiday with their family.
There was nothing worse than being a manager and having to decide who was going to get "stuck" with the crappy shifts and God awful early openings. It was bad enough when I had to be at work at 4 a.m. to let in the cleaning staff. This is RETAIL folks, not a 24 hour hospital.
It was a tragedy, and yes what was an 8 months pregnant women out shopping, I personally would have stayed home and said sorry to gifts, or bought online.
I also agree with Arubalisa, its crazy to open early because the true meaning of Christmas is to Thank GOD for sending is son Jesus on earth to save us.
