Whe the f... do people get so worked up over a 'special'? Even if I wanted a TV and could save R2000 on it I wouldn't wade into that mess and queue for several hours. My time and sanity is worth far more than that.

People were parking outside everywhere illegally in the road even. There cars were most likely just towed away.

Not everyone earns as much as you. :eek:
A R500 saving for someone that is earning R3000, for example, is alot of money.

The same thing happened when Makro Carnival opened on the 20th.

It leads me to believe that people either:

- Don't read the news
- Think they're not at risk of this happening to them
- Don't care as their vehicles are insured?

...coupled with the ignorance that we're technically in a recession and Standards and Poors is inevitably going to downgrade our credit rating.

But seriously, how many brain-cells does it take to think about the possibility of your vehicle being stolen while you're shopping? What if you've bought big items such as washing machines, fridges, TVs etc. only to find you have no vehicle after spending an entire day in a shopping center?

*sigh*
