Being politically correct for the last….five minutes.
Hope everybody had a great holiday. I missed dinner at SD’s and stayed home sick. DW brought home some leftovers and fixed me a turkey sammich with cranberries and pumpkin pie. It was awesome.
More than 30 million idiots gave thanks for all their blessings yesterday then went out and fought like ravening wolves over cheap electronics and kitchen appliances. Some 100 million more are expected today. I went by the Starbucks I deliver the New York Times to at 4:10 this morning. They open at 4:30. There were already 5 cars lined up at the drive-thru to pay six bucks for a cup of foam. We stay away from the crazies this time of year but DW has the patience to go to a mall, find a parking space and stand in a long checkout line. I have no patience whatsoever. None. Every bit of shopping I do (which isn’t very much) is done from right where I’m sitting now. You order it, pay for it and they send it right to your door. Piece of cake.
It’s WHACK Friday! Tempers fray at malls as shoppers come to blows amid Thanksgiving evening sales bonanza
NOTHING SAYS MERRY CHRISTMAS LIKE TWO PEOPLE BEATING THE SHIT OUT OF EACH OTHER
