Pepper Spray Deters Shoppers

Earlier today, a can of pepper spray went off in a crowded elevator at an NYC Toys 'R Us, temporarily sidetracking determined customers as they tried to rub the toxic material out of their eyes. Once they realized that the pepper spray would limit their money-spending abilities in the long term, they relunctantly allowed themselves to be treated at nearby St. Vincent's Hospital to shop another day.
