Wait a minute...
Woman, 73, says she was knocked down, stepped on during 'Black Friday' at Sawgrass Mills
"Black Friday," the traditional start of the holiday shopping season, began in South Florida early today with a 73-year-old woman being knocked down as a crowd at an electronics store rushed a metal security gate to get inside.
But it gets even better...
Shoppers Storm Stores; Officers Stop FightsORLANDO, Fla. -- Orlando police officers were called to break up some fights between shoppers early Friday as Central Floridians flocked to stores for one of the busiest shopping days of the year, according to Local 6 News.Line jumpers at a Best Buy at the Fashion Square Mall apparently started a fight at around 11:30 p.m. Officers responded and there were no arrests.
When will people learn to act civil and courteous? I stayed home all day and laughed at the people running around in a shopping frenzy. I did feel sad for the people that got trampled on. THAT should not have happened. People should just give money and let everyone shop the day after Christmas and fight it out then. At least everyone will get what they really want.
Still thinking about my Thanksgiving Day buffet and how I wish I had enough room to eat more yesterday.
