Gainesville man arrested at Toys R Us midnight opening


Here’s just another example of gross consumerism gone awry:

Gainesville police arrested a man at Toys R Us before its midnight opening on the famous day for gluttonous shopping, Black Friday. Police say the man threatened to “bum rush” the door if the toy store employee didn’t open it exactly at midnight. A woman was also arrested for interfering with the man’s arrest.

This is exactly why I avoid Black Friday like the Black Plague, instead choosing to participate in “Buy Nothing Day.”
