I felt like a squirrel trying to cross a busy highway to get to all my buddies on the other side. Every time I took three steps I would have to stop and quickly look around before someone ran me over. At least in that case, most drivers would do whatever it takes to swerve quickly out of the way of our furry little friends. People shopping don't give a crap during the holiday season. I personally think they are looking for contact. If someone were to bump into you during a random day in July they would stop, apologize, and then walk slowly on their way. What ever happened to the Christmas spirit. People bump into you a week before Christmas, mumble to get the @&*% out of their way, lower their shoulder to get the all important Yards After Contact, and stumble their way into the end zone. Oh look, they have 48 copies of Harry Potter's volume 14 The Magic Wizard Stick, Touchdown!!!!
Outside there was an accident, about every fifteen minutes. Not only do people walk faster inside the mall, but they have no regard for any speed limit signs or any human life form in the parking lot. Yield to pedestrians on the cross walk? Yeah right. No passing over the double yellow line? Bite me. It's every man for himself out there, and if you get in some one's way you will pay the consequences. Pain! The damn parking lot is huge, but god forbid you would ever have to park and actually walk outside to your car. If holiday parking lot etiquette has anything to say about us, well, it says we're a bunch of assholes. The shitty part of this whole thing. I still haven't done my Christmas shopping yet. Shit.
This was actually one accident I saw when leaving the mall. I video taped it for you.
