    Change of pace here; share your funny, nightmarish, or crazy Christmas shopping stories.

    I知 sure even the most level headed martial artist has been tested by fire during this time of year shopping. That guy that just missed your car as he cut in front of you and stole your parking spot then proceeded to show his IQ with his hand in the air.

    Or the lady that tried to wrestle the last Cabbage Patch doll away from you in the store. Or that mad dash to the only fifty Tickle me Elmo痴 in stock and 2500 people that want one.

    I知 sure more than a few of you have stories you can tell?

    I think all of it is crazy. I tend to make it harder then it needs to be by waiting to the last minute. Then of course I complain about it... I'm my own worse enemy....

    I like to think of Christmas shopping as a spectator sport. Sometimes I値l go to the mall on X-mass eve and just sit on a bench and watch everyone going crazy rushing around. It痴 pretty hilarious to watch and I can stay out of the mix and just sit back knowing I知 done with mine time to just watch.

    This happened a long time ago, but it fits, so I'll tell the story. We live near the Apache Indian Reservation, so often when you go to Wal Mart, which happens to be our local mall, you see the little old ladies just kinda "malling" around. They don't have much of a sense of "hurry". My daughter was pushing the cart and she was about six years old at the time. The isles were so crowded with people that it was hard to move, let alone push the cart. On the particular isle we were on, there was one of these rather large old indian ladies just standing there doing nothing. She was not looking at anything...just staring into space. My daughter said excuse me. She didn't move. My daughter said, "I can't get my cart past you!" At this point I turned around to see my normally passive patient little girl just roll right over the ladies (bare) feet. I appoligized to the woman, but I am guessing she did not speak english because all she could do was look at me with this look that could curtal milk straight from the cow! Gosh, I hate dealing with crowds!
