Free Money? Give Me Some

A woman being driven around in a rented limousine pulled up at a coat store and announced she'd won the lottery and would pay for everyone's purchases, police said, but she ended up causing a riot when customers realized it was a hoax.

What the hell is wrong with people? Are we so greedy and stupid that the second we hear that "free" money is available we turn into slobbering animals? I'd like to think that most of us, if something like this were to happen, would stop and think about it before we go crazy.
That's when angry customers, realizing they weren't getting free coats, began throwing merchandise on the floor and grabbing clothes without paying for them, Nace said.

"Everybody was like, 'I still want my free stuff,' and that started the riot," he said. "It looks like (Hurricane) Katrina went through the store."
Pisses me off.
