    are you one of these people who camp out at stores a week before something 'goes on sale'? why do people do this?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Consumerism 1."Consumerism" is the selfish and frivolous collecting of products
    Commodity fetishism icon_eek.gif

    every fucking year, I mean how much STUFF does one need? you have all year to shop and get sales.
    5 days of shopping, I guess I just don't understand the motivation to do this just to pay cheap for something, I mean I do look for some sales throughout the year but I will NEVER participate in this stupidity, black Friday isn't anymore, I blame the stupidity on the greedy stores themselves for promoting such a degrading habit every year, the stores could put a stop to it if they wanted to

    who are these people? poor people? rich people, middle class? educated, or less than? homeless who have tents?



    Mervyn's Commercial 1992 with frantic shopper, "open, open, open" the ones who started it no longer are in business but other retailers saw this and capitalized on public stupidity




    why, why? what is so fucking important to get killed for?

    Because most Americans are totally lost in life and shopping seems to be the only soothing balm to their directionless, boring lives.

    It is horribly sad how consumerism has taken over life in the US. But I was told that it is pretty much the same problem in most other developed countries and even in some third world countries as well. What is happening to most of the worldicon_question.gif

    I don't give gifts for xmas or Hanukkah. This strange concept of getting lemmings to run out and buy crap is just insane. I stay clear of anyplace that attracts the obese and idiotic shoppers, your WalMarts, Targets and other craptastic scum selling places.

    I wouldn't be caught dead in a Wal Mart. That giant retailer is nothing more than a glorified junk store that sells shit quality immitation plastic crap. Plus they treat their employees like the scum of the earth. Target and K Mart are no damned better. I stay away from these so-called discount stores which are more accurately known as junk stores.
