Gut Rumbles

If You've Seen One've seen the mall.

Driving home this morning, listening to an Atlanta news station, the traffic reports weren't about the roads, they were about the mall parking lots.

Why would anyone actually like going shopping on the busiest shopping day of the year? Fighting the traffic, finding a parking space in the same time zone, walking over the fallen to get into the stores...

As Yogi Berra once said, "Nobody goes there anymore -- it's too crowded."

Or, to make it comply with Gut Rumbles Standards & Practices, "Nobody goes there anymore -- it's too FUCKING crowded."

Hell yeah.

I live about 1/2 mile from one of the malls here. At this time of year, if I HAVE to go there, I walk unless the weather's too bad. One year, I walked in, found what I needed, and as I was walking out I saw a car that I had noticed in the line to enter the lot now in the lot, in line to move around the outside of the lot. Probably didn't get parked for at least 15 minutes.
