In Seattle, WA, several fights broke out at stores selling the new Air Jordan sneaker. Like for many holiday sales, people began lining up the day before to reserve a spot and make sure they got the sneakers.
Would you ever wait in line overnight for something? If so, what?
Standing in line to get a new pair of sneakers? No way, no how. I think most of the people who stood in line did it so they could say “they’re in with the latest style”. As soon as the sneakers hit the ground, it’s old stuff and will become out of style, and everybody will start wearing them. It seems to be the American way to want to be the first at doing anything.
Would I wait in line overnight for something? Probably not, but I might do it for the experience. I’ve stood in lots of long lines in my life, but not at night waiting to buy something. I’ve always liked doing odd things, and this experience fits into that category. Odd.
