Human Stampede To Go Shopping

Recommended Posts

Something I don't understand. What 'deals' were they in such a hurry to get as to risk injuring other people for. would be understandable if it was a rush for half price tinned beans.

A variety of plastic necessities made in China, which will be thrown away in 6 months time.

Does anyone remember PRIMARK opening in Marble Arch? You would think they were opening the shop for 1 day only. MUST BUY TAT

The weather forecast was for rain, people were worried that if Primark got wet, it might shrink. :)

It's simply par for the course, I'm afraid.

2 years ago, a Wal-Mart store worker got trampled to death by 200 rabid consumers who stormed the store, lusting for discounted dumb sh!t to buy.

Wal-Mart was fined $7000 over the incident.

Also, that same day, 2 people got shot in a Toys R Us store, after getting into an argument.

People are just beyond ugly, sometimes.

The woman screaming was my GFs cousin screaming because they were trampling on her 12 year old daughter.

Why take your 12 year old daughter at 3am to a place like that on line for how many hours?

How irresponsible?

Buffalo, NY, is one of those US towns that is suffering big time at the moment.

On the plus side, it's one of the few US cities named after a type of Mozarella. Every cloud and all that...

Fascinating and disturbing. Very un-British! Just get in a queue!

(I am guilty of such things pouncing on ticket sales online etc, but would never dive through a door and trample people etc)

Crush chaos at Ikea store opening

Several people were hurt in the crush as thousands flocked to the midnight opening of Ikea's newest store.

The store in Edmonton, north London, stayed open for just 30 minutes because of safety fears and five people had to be taken to hospital for treatment.

"People became agitated and eventually they started trying to charge the doors."

Patricia Ming said when the doors opened one woman "pushed her way forward screaming with excitement" then the crowd rushed in through the doors.

"The doors remained opened for at least 15 minutes while crowds barged through the doors and the security guards just stood out the way as otherwise they would have been trampled," she said.

:huh:
