Nuttiness

Towards the end of last week the world was treated to the spectacle of some totally nutty behaviour. Not in the UK, nor the USA, this time the craziness took place in France.

Supermarket chain, Intermarche held a promotion sale for Nutella Spread. They reduced the price of jar from Euro4.50 down to Euro1.40, a reduction of 70% in the price. Personally I can’t stand the stuff, but clearly a lot of people love it, as this was a promotion that caused riots.

People pushed and shoved, pulled each others’ hair, and were described as ‘fighting like animals’. The Gendarmes were called in to restore some control amongst the customers and all stocks were snapped up within 15 minutes.

Maybe it’s just me, but I can’t help wondering why normally well-behaved citizens were transformed into a surging mob over a simple jar of hazelnut spread.
