Our favorite cranky tipster has a slightly different take on the Tory Burch sale currently driving the ladies wild in midtown: "West 36th between Seventh and Eighth is overrun with girls waiting on line and clogging the sidewalk for the Burch Shitshow. There is a scaffolding set up and these girls are not standing off to the side at all. They are literally standing in the middle, blocking the entire sidewalk while having their inane conversations (be it with the other drones on the line or on their Blackberries) to pass the time before they get their hands on (slightly less) ridiculously priced shoes that are passé." The subject line on this missive? "Tory Burch Sample Sale Assholes." Wow, dude, tell us what you really think. [Racked Inbox]
