Oh my goodness. After yesterday’s post went live, I started seeing reports of lots of drama at the Disney Princess Expo. Some highlights:
Lines. So many lines.
People shoving and throwing elbows to get merchandise before others.
Women throwing wine glasses and breaking them (I think trying to toss them to each other for buying purposes?).
People grabbing at jackets as they came out of the back room.
People buying entire boxes of merchandise to resell. Apparently there’s a new rule that you can only buy 25 of any one item, so there’s that.
One of my favorites – people posting items on eBay using photos they took at checkout. Not even waiting to get back to the hotel room to list that puppy for up to twice what they paid.
My favorite – shoving and punching over merchandise.
Apparently the crowds got so heavy that the Fire Marshal came in and shut it down so the crowds could clear out.
People. It’s just stuff. I mean, I get the desire to have a cool shirt or jacket for your first half marathon. I’m sure I’m going to want all of the 70.3 gear later this year. But can’t we be a little bit civil?
