The Holiday Spirit

In today's NYT's article on the growth of "shopdropping" (reverse shoplifting) is this gem from a corporate spokesperson who's upset about the shopdropping from consumerism/capitalism critics: “'Our goal at all times is to provide comfortable and distraction-free shopping,' said Bethany Zucco, a spokeswoman for Target."

Distraction-free? As in: we cannot allow you to be distracted from anything other than consumerism. We need you to focus now. Concentrate. Buy. Buy. Buy our stuff. Buy our stuff. Repeat after me: BUY OUR STUFF.
