I had already intended to FTFY even before everyone chimed in about how they think about what they're missing out on when they can't go out.

This behavior also varies from store to store. The most uncivilized action that I've witnessed has taken place at the shop closest to me.
Have seen several flippers, introduced myself to one. Have only had mild rudeness, like someone starting to flip a few articles ahead of you. I usually just move on to another aisle, only once did I play leap frog with a person and got back ahead of her.

Gah... just tried out Stein Mart this evening. Complete waste of time, briefly considered some RG ties for $25 but figured it wasn't worth it.
Made the mistake of showing up on Senior day at a store today, couldn't figure out why the crazyness. There was tons of great stuff and 4 of 5 colors were half off (usually only 3) with cart piled high I finally realized my mistake. I wasn't getting 50% off nothing unless I was 50+ (including the normal tags that on any other day would have been less 50%). Considered leaving the cart, instead got in line with someone, struck up a conversation, offered to pay for all his stuff if he would check out (over 50 obviously) he happily agreed. Cost me <$5 to save about $75.
