It used to be that I would only present this story around the time of Black Friday. But since this sort of craziness is now commonplace here in the U.S. and is no longer shocking due to the increasing desensitization of the masses, I decided to leave it up as a thank you to all the many readers who expressed their approval - or otherwise - regarding my work. No criticism goes unheeded; we learn from that. Well ... some of us do.

And so it was ... not long ago, the shadow of a woman fell across the threshold of a store that could have been anywhere in urban U.S.A. Her hunger for a bargain was legendary and the likes of which God had never seen. Back by popular demand, Mable Moxely, that red-tag renegade of the reduced bin, once again rambles the discount aisle. Come with me now as I invite you to witness the most heinous holiday shopper to ever approach a cashier. Enjoy
