People are losing their minds. Seriously. I remember the mad consumer dashes for the “must have” Cabbage Patch Dolls, Tickle Me Elmo, and now, the PS III.
We can only hope that the “contestants” all signed a no-fault waiver before racing for a spot in line. But, as usual, someone gets hurt, and now the lawsuit ideas start flying. “If they had raffle, nobody would have gotten hurt…” Guess who’s going to get sued? The guy who launched the other guy face-first into a flagpole. Of course not. Wal-Mart! (This follows the Steve Dallas rule of civil suits– never, ever sue poor people.)
Merry Christmas! Nothing celebrates the season more than dislocating your jaw in an effort to get a toy you can sit on your couch in your apartment playing while wearing sweatpants.
