Witness at The Dawn of Retail Dead

Like a scene from “Halt and Catch Fire”

Around 1986, I was sent by my wife to buy a Cabbage Patch Kids Doll. Hmm, I thought there sure are a lot of people waiting for the store to open.  20 minutes later I was crushed up against the doors, which opened outwards. When we finally  got in people stampeded though the isles, toppling over jewelry and bottles of perfume to get to the toy department. By the time I strolled to the toy dept., I arrived in time to see a woman yank a Care Bear out of a kids hands.

Madness… not a typo *1986
