    Did something today that I have not done in Yrs.
    I WENT SHOPPING!!!!!!

    The wife works every Sat but this yr she got off for the four day holiday weekend.

    She badly wanted to go to the store's this morning to hit the sales and with no fishing planned I had to say yes.She wont drive in this kind of weather.

    We left the house at 6am and headed to the West Ridge Mall-Wally world-Target-Kmart.

    I found the new meaning to shopping.You just walk around and look at stuff.
    Don't really need to buy anything, you just look what's on sale and say thats a good buy..:confused2:

    Was out four hrs and only bought like $30 worth of stuff "that we didn't need.

    But hey she's as happy as she can be. She said it was a great day of shopping....:big_smile::cool2::wink::smile2:

    Best thing about shopping is having money to go shopping. If you spend the money you no longer have the best reason to go fishing, I mean shopping. :0a17:

    My wife insisted that I accompany her on her shopping trips. Unfortunately, like most men, I found shopping boring and preferred to get in and get out. Equally unfortunate, my wife is like most women she loves to browse. Yesterday my dear wife received the following letter from the local Target store.

    Dear Mrs. Miles,

    Over the past six months, your husband has caused quite a commotion in our store. We cannot tolerate this behavior and have been forced to ban both of you from the store. Our complaints against your husband are listed below and are documented by our video surveillance cameras.

    1. June 15: Took 24 boxes of prophylactics and randomly put them in other people's carts when they weren't looking.

    2. July 2: Set all the alarm clocks in Housewares to go off at 5-minute intervals.

    3. July 7: He made a trail of tomato juice on the floor leading to the women's restroom.

    4. July 19: Walked up to an employee and told her in an official voice, 'Code 3 in Housewares. Get on it right away'. This caused the employee to leave her assigned station and receive a reprimand from her Supervisor that in turn resulted with a union grievance, causing management to lose time and costing the company money.

    5. August 4: Went to the Service Desk and tried to put a bag of M&Ms on layaway.

    6. August 14: Moved a 'CAUTION - WET FLOOR' sign to a carpeted area..

    7. August 15: Set up a tent in the camping department and told the children shoppers to have fun if they would bring pillows and blankets from the bedding department to which twenty children obliged.

    8. August 23: When a clerk asked if they could help him he began crying and screamed, 'Why can't you people just leave me alone?' EMTs were called.

    9. September 4: Looked right into the security camera and used it as a mirror while he picked his nose.

    10. September 10: While handling guns in the hunting department, he asked the clerk where the antidepressants were.

    11. October 3: Darted around the store suspiciously while loudly humming the ' Mission Impossible' theme..

    12. October 6: In the auto department, he practiced his 'Madonna look' by using different sizes of funnels.

    13. October 18: Hid in a clothing rack and when people browsed through, yelled 'PICK ME! PICK ME!'

    14. October 21: When an announcement came over the loud speaker, he assumed a fetal position and screamed 'OH NO! IT'S THOSE VOICES AGAIN!'


    And last, but not least:

    15. October 23: Went into a fitting room, shut the door, waited awhile, then yelled very loudly, 'Hey! There's no toilet paper in here.' One of the clerks passed out.
