Sometimes, of course, we feature people in this section who are evil. Linda isn’t evil—in fact, she’s mentally ill. So while I won’t post her picture (largely because I can’t find a clear one), I can’t let her trifling behavior slide.
Linda showed up at a Burlington Coat Factory in Columbus, Ohio, and announced she’d won the Lottery, and would pay for everyone’s merchandise up to $500. People filled up shopping carts and even called relatives telling them to come down and get free stuff. But wait…it was all a ruse. Linda hadn’t won anything, and skedaddled, which pissed off some of the greedy/needy shoppers. Linda, to paraphrase Bill Engvall: Here’s your trifling sign. (And I have a bunch more for those brain surgeons who looted the store during the melee.)
