I'm home today. Been ill since Christmas Day. I had to leave early from the family party because I was so fatigued and I hurt so bad all over I could hardly move. Today, I'm not in as much pain, but still tired. Some kind of flu I guess. Anyway, I'm watching the news and they are talking about the bad behavior of people in the stores, and in the malls. Punching people, rioting in the Mall of America, over zealous people climbing over each other with no regard for each other to get to things. THINGS! To get that sale price, or get what they want before it's all gone. What has happened to us? Have things become so important that we will hurt another just to have it? I wonder what happened to etiquette, stuff like please, thank you, excuse me, I'm sorry. What happened to a smile on our face and getting a smile back? I smile at people in stores, and all I ever seem to get back is a look like I just got off the crazy train. I just shake my head at stuff like this. What do you think?
