When Black Friday Comes…

October 14th, 2013 - 2:00 pm

Shelves

Euro-Anglo-American culture is pretty polite most of the time, with rules for public behavior having been arrived at organically and over long periods of time — just as English Common Law did. Whether we call it a line, or a line-up, or a queue, when there’s a wait for some product or service we do it in an orderly fashion, and we usually leave one another as much personal space as is practical. But then government steps in to make everything “better,” and things like this happen:

Springhill [Louisiana] Police Chief Will Lynd confirms they were called in to help the employees at Walmart because there were so many people clearing off the shelves. He says Walmart was so packed, “It was worse than any black Friday” that he’s ever seen.

Lynd explained the cards weren’t showing limits and they called corporate Walmart, whose spokesman said to let the people use the cards anyway. From 7 to 9 p.m., people were loading up their carts, but when the cards began showing limits again around 9, one woman was detained because she rang up a bill of $700.00 and only had .49 on her card. She was held by police until corporate Walmart said they wouldn’t press charges if she left the food.

Lynd says at 9 p.m., when the cards came back online and it was announced over the loud speaker, people just left their carts full of food in the aisles and left.

“Just about everything is gone, I’ve never seen it in that condition,” said Mansfield Walmart customer Anthony Fuller.

Socialized shopping at Walmart turned into a shelf-clearing disaster area. Now they’re bringing it to health care, too.

Curious timing, this announcement. . . RIGHT after this weekend's EBT "glitch".

Methinks someone with big ears is sending a message, when he's not stomping his feet. . .
