It wasn’t even the first time. That’s the best part. What store was this? What were people trying to get after either time? We don’t know anything else. All we know is that this isn’t the first time the door has been torn down. It might not even be the second time.
What kind of mob strength is required to tear a door down? Was this a little local store, like a mom-and-pop place? Or was this mob at such power that it tore a door off of a Best Buy or a Target? Also, who has to put the door back?
Give Us a Break, Lady
Yeah, I bet you didn't know you could be arrested for that, could you? Maybe you called the police when you were eight because your older brother stole your Pokemon cards, but that's kid stuff. Literally. They aren't going to charge anyone for that. But if you're a grown woman, calling the emergency services because a store wouldn't price match? Yeah, that gets you charged.
On Black Friday the police are running around handling riots, assaults, theft, and who knows what else, and this lady has the gall to tell them about the totally legal business practices of a store. Give her life, judge.
To the Victor go the Spoils
If you've read one story about two idiots getting into a fight during Black Friday, you've read most of them. This one, however, is a little different. The two guys who got into close-quarters decided the best way to decide who got the Crock-Pot was to use it as a weapon.This was a poor choice.
Not only because that sort of damage is illegal (thus the reason the police paid them a visit), but it could also do damage to the very item they're fighting over. So now not only do they have the Crock-Pot, but they both had to have a talking to by the law.
They're Mine! My Preciouses!
The mad lad from this story walked home with a major haul of one-dollar towels, so good for him. On the other hand, the description from the story sounds like there were dozens if not hundreds of towels available, and if he really got all of them, what on Earth is he going to do with all of those? Was this person desperate for soaking up liquid? Like, is his faucet and shower running at all times?
Maybe he was on the lookout for holiday presents and figured pretty much everybody could use some new towels. Well, he wasn't wrong. Towels aren't a bad gift.
Back into the Hands of Babes
It was a heady time during the era of Beanie Babies. It didn't matter who you were, you got caught up in the madness, at least a little bit. We all have a box of these stuffed animals hiding in the closet, or maybe just the one that still adorns our bookshelf. This gal has a story from that time when apparently she got away from Black Friday with a new prized possession by the skin of her teeth.
There are way too many stories about adults stealing stuff from kids that we can find. C'mon, people, have a heart.
