In my little town of Grinnell at the early morning opening of Wal-Mart there was a female employee off-loading a palette of reduced priced Black Friday stuff. Apparently the wave of slobbering customers was so intense that one of my friends had to help pull the Wal-Mart employee away from the crushing stampede of shoppers before she got hurt. She was literally being smashed between the press of customers and the palette. People were getting crazy.
I'm glad I'm not one of the credit card sheeple out there who act like this.
