Near Stampede at Urban Outfitters?!

This has got to be one of the stupidest things I have seen.  I really hate waiting in line.  I hate even more, waiting in a line that has a small chance of killing me. To take the cake: this video is from Urban Outfitters.  Really?   Now I love Urban Outfitters as much as the next guy.  I’ve got one on my street.  It is frighteningly empty with sales signs in the window.

I don’t really get the whole Black Friday wait for hours, risk hurting myself, my loved ones and others….. so that I can have the privilege of shopping. Something these stores spend millions trying to get me to do anyway. I mean people have died over the years.  10 people get a $200 TV and the rest get semi normal sales prices on old stock????

To the best of my knowledge, no one was hurt in this video.  But is anyone else reminded of the 1979 tragedy at the Who concert? Maybe, it is time for stores to think a little more about safety.  How about those Great America barricades to have a nice orderly line?!
