I hate those "firsties"

I went to the PX on our camp on Black Friday, just to get into the holiday spirit. I bought pudding and cigarettes ... and I certainly got a great deal! And I elbowed a slow-moving Haji in the bazaar.

I am a mobber. I have no qualms. Your dumb ass gets there early when my smart ass gets there 5 minutes before. Why should I wait in line? It's a store. I never wait in line, except to check-out. Dumb-ass.
I laugh at you - 2005-11-28 11:39:04
Because I sit on my fat ass and getter better deals on the 'net. I am above all you pushy bitches who think they get away with something jumping in line who pay MORE in the end. HAHAHA!

Uncle Bob, I think the trouble you ran into stemmed from the area in which you live. Now, don't get me wrong, there are many great and wonderful places (as well as people) in Alabama. However, since I have a crude idea as to where you live, consider the sociological perspective of why those 'females' were rude---shoving and pushing to get into Target. It has to do with class status and socioeconomic reasons. It's why the news reported that at WAL-MARTs in three cities across the country there were issues. There is a stereotype of person belonging to a particular level of the socioeconomic ladder that frequents places such as Walmart. This is not a racial statement but rather an observation (though quite truthful as well) as to WHO in society is most likely to act or react in certain ways. You see? Anyway, next year if you muster up the courage to try out Black Friday again, I highly recommend driving a bit out of your way to an area of town that is higher on the socioeconmic ladder as well as a store that epitomizes that rung of status. (We went to BestBuy in Boca Raton without incident. In fact, it was quite organized and pleasant even down to the 15 to 20 minute wait in the checkout line.) My thoughts, Michele

I would have backed you up. The one fucking thing in this world that pisses me off more than anything else is line cutters. (and people in cars that cut you off, these are line cutters too, just they happen to be mobile).

Oh, jenn, you' re an ignorant bitch.
Hey Michele, - 2005-11-28 13:22:24
Did you digest your turkey yet? Because you sound almost entirely full of shit.
Hey Michele2 - 2005-11-28 16:25:07
Michele - I'd argue that the opposite is true ... that those "higher up on the socioeconomic ladder" tend to have more of a sense of entitlement and therefore seem to be ruder to deal with in lines, etc. Those on the lower rungs just tend to be more vocal about it. Nice snobby/elitist ideas though ...

I No Understand the Getty Uppy Early Thing on Black Friday. I used to work in retail and just for the record, people are rude year round.

It is not natural for humans to stand in line waiting for anything. It is survival of the fittest, not survival of the ones who waited longest. I actually have no problem waiting in lines. I live in California. There is a line for everything. I wait patiently and if someone behind me gets on my nerves, I let other people jump in front of me. I'm never in a rush, so I don't mind. I'm an a-hole and I know it!
