Are we Army Ants or People with no Manners?

My wife and I were Christmas shopping Sunday afternoon. We went to Eastland mall, Toys “R” Us and several other places. One of the last places we went to was Burlington Coat Factory on Green River road.  It was around 5 pm in the afternoon. The store wasn’t busy. Very few customers were there at the time, maybe ten at the most including us two. As I looked around the store I noticed that the place wasn’t picked up at all. The staff was around but it was really not busy like you think it would be for the Christmas Season. Anyway, I snapped a few photos with my cell phone. I noticed one shopper (Lady with her small kids and Husband ) were in the shoe department and she accidentally knocked over a tall stack of boxes shoes. They fell like the Eiffel tower. Did she stop what she was doing to pick them up?… No…Did her husband pick them up?… No… They carried on like it was nothing. I think I am more disappointed in how the shoppers went through the store like army ants and didn’t put stuff back on the shelf and just left it lying on the floor more than I am of the staff not straightening the place back up in a timely matter…What’s up people. We are all adults. If you pick something up and decide its not for you. Place it back were you got it. It that so hard to do???

Here are the photos:

    That’s not the first time I’ve seen that store like that, so there might be an element of employee laziness there, but you’re right about shoppers. They are disgusting creatures.
