A Black Friday Tale
As many of you know, I am a magnet for the weird… And Black Friday was no exception. My parents came in from out of state for Thanksgiving and my mom and I decided we should go reasonable Black Friday shopping. By reasonable, I mean we don’t wait in lines at midnight or try to be the first ones through any door. If we get our item, great, if not, it’s not the end of the world. Literally.
Well, my mom loves Drysdales and that was the one place she absolutely wanted to go. They opened their doors at 5am, which was perfect. Really, getting out and about by 5am was perfect and we decided that’d be our first store. We got to the parking lot about 4:55 and found one of the two empty spots (side note: I had NO idea that Drysdales, of all places would be packed at 5am–be serious, it’s DRYSDALES!–If you don’t know what it is, they sell, cowboy attire, and yes, since I live in Oklahoma, I should have expected this place to be packed, but I was still shocked.)
Anyway, we go in and my poor mother is pushed, shoved, molested, fondled and nearly clobbered half to death as she hunts for the purse and matching wallet she wants as well as all the other ladies in the store (I swear everyone with the XX chromosome pairing was over at that display grabbing for a purse and/or wallet); after she finds it, she says those blissful words, “Let’s go.”
Checkout was quick and painless, and we’d been in the store all of 10 minutes. As we’re walking back out to our car we find this:
Our best guess is that someone had slept in their car the night before, got uncomfortable with her bra on, so she took it off and in her haste she forgot to put it back on… Then slammed it in the car door as she ran across the parking lot to get inside and get to the purse display.
Now for the Cyber Monday Sale!
