We’re all out to save some cash when it comes to shopping for the holidays. What could be better than finding a cheap amount of lobster? Well, lots of things, unless you’re one of the dwindling numbers of people who enjoy lobster. This lady clearly does, since she was willing to tear the sea creature out of the package, stuff it down her pants, and then throw the trash into a hiding spot.
We almost feel bad for the employee who discovered this malfeasance, because he had to indicate to others just how strange the lady’s pants looked. That’s never easy, especially for a guy.
Sir, Please Remove Your Pants
We get the impression that this fellow was found out rather quickly. It doesn't matter how baggy your pants are, or how big your pockets are, you can't fit an entire Panasonic Blu-Ray player into them without casting suspicion on yourself. Was it just the machine itself, or was it the entire box, all accessories included?
Well, one way or another, that's not going to fly. Black Friday is already about getting stuff for cheap, why would you do something this stupid, and get charged with theft? It probably wasn't all that expensive anyway. He also could have easily stolen the discs themselves.
Guy Deserves a Medal
Few things are as powerful as the buying public when a brand new device has come out. Sometimes that also happens on or near a Black Friday, and it gets even worse. This story has the Nintendo Wii, which – while not the most popular thing Nintendo has ever made – sold plenty.
It was popular enough, or people were crazy enough, to get into knock-down, drag-out fights with others so they could get a hand on that sweet, sweet video game goodness. Could you imagine how much coffee you had to have in you to be ready for that press? Bless you, kid.
Was it a Big One at Least?
Battle happens. In the crowded aisles of Black Friday, it seems an eventuality. As time passes, the chance of two or three or four shoppers getting into a fight approaches a hundred percent. This employee tells us that he or she saw two shoppers get into a bare-knuckle fight over a toaster. People, hear me! I also love my toaster.
It has four slots and two temperature knobs. I WILL NEVER GET INTO A FIGHT OVER IT! And I got it for free! There are probably more toasters for you to grab, you don't need to bloody each other over it.
Want to be friendly to your local law enforcement agent in a hurry? Punch them in the face. Security guards on Black Friday are already going to be keyed up for all the madness and chaos that the day brings – starting out by popping one in the face doesn't seem like a very good tactic.
That's the kind of thing that will, at the very least, teach you a lesson about keeping your hands to your face. Or, you'll get to spend the night in a nice, cold, local jail cell. It's also a good way to make sure all the other shoppers are on their best behavior. The guy already got a punch.
