    Fighting to get the "IT" present
    Camping out to be first in the store
    Cussing out the store clerks/manager because 1500 people wanted the same thing and that store only had 10, like that is going to do any good.

    Yes, men, those are good examples, but I was thinking more along the lines of "redneck" stupid. You know :tounge_out:

    Jamie,
    Congratulations on learning that at a young age. Now is this the reason men wait until Christmas Eve, the very last minute procrastinators?

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

    Saw two ladies get in a fist fight at Wal Mart last year over the last Xbox360.

    OK, to me too many lights is tacky. It all gets conglomerated up somehow and ruins the very effect people are trying so hard to find. If it's ONE theme then it may work, but I've yet to see a ONE theme million+ light display.

    Sorry, no offense meant to anyone, and these are solely my opinions. Just not something I want to see. Simple is better to me. Simplicity makes me serene, happy.

    There is a house here that starts putting them up in Sept/Oct and it lights up that whole circle of the road, PLUS the other 2 subdivisions on the side and in back of it. WHEW! Course they may have grandkids or great grandkids and do it all for them. Or they haven't heard of an energy crisis or they love to spend $? Heck I don't know, just one of my pet peeves, I guess.

    Just one of my ramblins again.

    Well while I'm rantin', I may as well continue.

    20 decorated trees is just way overdoing it.

    Heck I have enough crrrrrapppp to do that many plus some, but hey maybe I'm just lazy, OR I prefer to spend my time here or there, instead of unpacking, decorating, THEN undecorating, THEN repacking it. WHEW, that wore me out to just type it.

    Get over it. It's just another day. Remember the real reason for the season.


    Silently revel in the true meaning of Christmas. Count your blessings, not your trees and ornaments. :wink:

    Take care.

    Redneck stupid huh
    How about deep frying a turkey ON a wooden patio and burning down the house.

    How about driving a tractor through the living because you were so drunk you thought it was the barn.

    Are driving you car into yoour neighbors house thinking you were parking in your driveway.

    And my favorite is "Santa Clause riding a bicylce nude through town because he decided he did not need his meds anymore.

    All of those are true stories that I had the "joy" of dealing with while working in 911 EMS.

    Im with you Cheryl,

    We got one part of a town that is inbetween two towns and the whole "fricking" area lights up the street for blocks... the streets get closed of to residents only.. except for a couple of streets, and then millions of people cruse through to see the lights... once is enough...bumper to bumper trafic.... "No Place to leave used Beer" or other needs....
    lights.... "do lights use energy" DaH? what a waste... I'm not saying "bah hum bug" but what a waste.

    Now that won't fly with me.......LOL.........there's nothing left by then that isn't broken, missing a piece, wrong size, and just plain LEFTOVER. No thought goes into waiting until the last minute, only the rush of adrenaline to find SOMETHING, ANYTHING...........LOL.

    Good luck.

    I'm finished. :lol:

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

    You might be redneck stupid during the holidaze if you are chosen BPOTM :crazy:

    You might be redneck stupid during the holidaze if you bust your hoses and pipes trying to make an ice scene for your party.

    You might be redneck stupid if you think limes are olives in Margaritas.

    No Cheryl, THAT won't fly with me. Many times I have found the perfect gift on Christmas eve. Not boken, not missing a piece, not the wrong size.
    Now granted, I try to do my shopping long before the last minute because I can't stand dealing with the idiots who are rushing around like chickens with their heads cut off.
    Example, 1 year, I looked for 2 months to find the perfect ring for Vanessa before we got married. Found it Christmas eve at noon. I had been in that store 10 times in the past 2 months lookin for rings, never found it until then.

    Cheryl, I can't think of a thing to add to your thread. I don't see any of the shopping crowd here in front of the computer. :wink: Betty ordered most everything online. What local shopping has been done she does it. We do go out to eat and have to fight the shopping traffic... the malls parking lots look like a mess.

    We had shopped for our kid, toys mainly and when I turned around to push my buggy, I realized someone was 'shopping' out of my buggy!!! I took back what they saw fit to take and they looked at me like I had done something wrong, as if how could I do such a thing!!! I didnt say anything....didnt have too..^#!&@ wal-mart shopper :waaaht:

    Come to find out someone had done the same thing with my Mom, they had got my brother a game that was hard to find and someone swapped it from their buggy before they got to checkout!
