Half price hysteria (Ruby Tuesday)

The ICA Supermarket next to my Grandma's house one day announced they were closing down.. everything in the shop was half price. I never in my life seen people behave the way they did in that shop. Animal instincts were awaken by the low prices. Pushing. Crowding. Elbowing their way forward.. The noice in the shop was unbearable.. lucky I had my MP3-player.. I almost felt like there been a warning that bombs were going to fall and people now stocked up their shelters. Crazy eyed. Hysteria. Shopping frenzy.

Most wanted items: coffee and cigarettes..

sometimes the money you save isn't worth the chaos

That's what the shelves look like around here when it is announced that a hurricane is coming - empty! Especially the bottled water shelves.

I was busy over the weekend too - Monday was a holiday in the USA, so it was three days of doing nothing particularly useful ;-)

You have to feel sort of sorry for products so awful that nobody will buy them even at half price. Cool shots. The story makes me sort of sad, though.

And only the red shelfs remained. I never find anything useful from those sales. I feel everything good has already gone.

Lots of red, definitely fits Ruby Tuesday. It's sad how people can act at times.
