What is the world coming to? I blame the media for all the hype of getting the people worked up about the coming holidays. As I said, the real meaning of these days are gone. Not about family and love. they want to BUY things. You cannot BUY love!

Seriously folks its a sale at WALMART do people really need to die? Unfathomable.

How ironic! Thanks for posting. Just day before I mentioned something about working for expectations of the people and this is what happens. It was temp too. I do feel so sorry for the family of this worker. Good intentions and why does this happen? I know my friend worked for WalMart and had to take off for her mom's funeral. Do you know they asked her to return to work that afternoon? Things like this leave a bad taste in my mouth.
