Black outlet for the crazy people

I've never been a Black Friday shopper.

Something about standing in the cold for 17 hours so I can be one of a thousand people fighting my way to a deeply discounted DVD that was relevant in the 90s doesn't sound so appealing.

And this year, the super crazies were out in full force. Shots fired in the parking lot at the WalMart, 20 people injured by a woman with pepper the WalMart.

I sense a pattern.

That DVD is 15 years old!!

I'm all for a good deal, I have two kids I have to keep clothed and fed. But the decline of civility in this country is mind boggling. I never understood why people felt it necessary to take an otherwise joyful holiday and ruin it by being mean to each other.

Maybe it's this area...maybe I need to move to a really quiet, sleepy, boring town where the nice people offense to the nice, bored people in the sleepy towns of this country, but seriously!

The holidays are stressful enough without all this nonsense. It's enough to bring out the crazy in all of us, or just the deep-seeded fear of the late-night WalMart crazies.

Happy holidays, y'all!
