I had to run to the store to pick up somethings for Thanksgiving dinner this weekend. I jumped in the truck went to the local store, and it was over
flowing with the usual last minute shoppers for the holidays. While I made my way through the outragous crowds, I was almost ran over 7 times by
people with shopping carts, twice more by people texting and not watching where they are going. No one even said excuse me or pardon me,
ever happened to being curtious anymore.. it is a retorical question) they just kept trudging along oblivious to what was going on around them. Then
it occured to me that holiday shoppers are zombies...Instead of them wanting to eat your brains they are just looking for the next special or sale.
While I was waiting to purchase my items, there was an overhead annoucement about something being given away for free, infact I think they made sure
to say the word free at least a dozen times in the announcement. People were looking up and at the almighty voice from above, eyes glazing over and
the line that seemed to go back a hundred feet instantly cleared down to three of us, to trudge after the "free" item.
This got me thinking about the original movie Time Machine, when the air raid siern wailed everyone stopped what they were doing to go be
So what say you my fellow ATSers?
