    Just shows how vile consumerism is in this country. Grown adults act like animals over some stuffed animal. Shouldn’t be surprised though, this is the same country that has a day dedicated to trampling people to death because of some shitty sales

    Pretty sure that happens in most countries. IIRC some time ago in France, in some supermarkets had an offer for Nutella and people went crazy. And when I say crazy, I mean crazy lol Still though, had no idea people liked stuffed animals that much.

    Btw more bear puns are more than welcome lol

    Or here me out parents. You tell little jimmy no and you stop trying to follow the damn herd of stupidity. We all saw the lines on TV, or just by going near a build a bear towards our destinations. Simple common sense would have told you "Yeah fucking my day over is not worth £10"

    Yes. I found an article about it actually. Nutella is really good. I didn't know the French went nuts over something that wasn't cheese, wine, or snails though. Kappa

    I know. I was being facetious. Also, I am aware that some eat fish without removing the eyes, scales or guts in France and elsewhere in Europe. In the US, that is considered unappetizing.

    I work in retail. You don't know how fucking hard it is sometimes for parents NOT to say no to their kids even if they are screaming, crying, etc. The kids these days literally have no fucking manners.

    Edit; Seriously, I've seen kids whine to have candy, not say 'please' or 'thank you' until prompted by me, NOT their parents. Not only that, there's consistent tantrums.

    Kind of shocked people are this stupid. My friend was going to go, but the mall here had 300 people in line super early in the morning. It's not worth waiting all day like that. Such a silly waste of time to save a little money on a luxury.

    That's because it's illegal to whip their asses. When I was a kid, you could a kid's ass with a belt or a paddle. :kibashades

    I know they do that with the very small fish, ones that you can eat with just a bite. Even here they do that. No idea if they do that with bigger fish in other European countries though.

    If only 2 puns have been made, there's trouble a-bruin. I mean, i hate to be polar about this, but when stories like this cub-up, we need a panda-demic amount of puns to flow like honey.

    If puns are not your thing, just grin and bear it.

    Worked in retail before, but the issue here is that a lot of these kids wouldn't have even known about this if their parents didn't tell them.

    I hear you. Worked in enough stores that where we live we now call these kids walking celibacy or contraceptive commercials.
