The urge to spend

Imagine that, shoppers killed a man in their desperation to get to the bargains.

The rot runs very deep......

"A shop worker has died after being knocked to the ground by bargain-hunters who stormed into a superstore in New York's suburbs as it opened. The 34-year-old man, along with several other workers and shoppers, was trampled in the rush at the Wal-Mart store in Valley Stream, Long Island."

And they would not stop shopping when asked to leave the store - "but I've been standing in line since 4pm Thursday!!" As an American, I'm ashamed.

MFI are having an 80% off sale nearby.

I could not face the indignity of it. I won't push anyone until my family are starving.
