The last year story of a Los Angeles woman pepper-spraying fellow shoppers at WalMart in order to get a better access to the goods she wanted to buy, may long be forgotten, but the Biggest Sale on Earth is once more the motivating force for so many people to get the one and only deal in the universe.
Even if, eventually, the deal is not as great as expected or the stuff is not what they really wanted, people turn to wild beasts right after Thanksgiving's dinner since many business open their doors on this once highly respected American holiday.
The psychology behind the phenomenon is simple and not very surprising. It is all about survival it the world of endless deals, sales and opportunities. And when shopping is considered a "therapy" we can only wish the incurables: Shop till you drop!
Shop till you drop because only in America people trample others for super deals exactly one day after expressing gratitude for what they already have.
