People are D-U-M, dum.
I watched commercials on T.V. last night with disgust and horror. Wal-Mart, open at 5 a.m. the day after Thanksgiving? Shoe Carnival, open at 6? Seriously, how important is it to be THE FIRST ONE TO BUST OUT A CREDIT CARD on the day after? Who are the jackasses of America who set the alarm clock so that they can be the first ones to be greeted by a Wal-Mart employee who’s one more hip accident away from oblivion? And who’s buying shoes for Christmas gifts?
It’s E-commerce all the way for me. If for no other reason, to avoid jockeying for spaces at shopping mall parking lots.
