My favorite mall activity (at least for the last 18 months or so. . .): texter hunting! It's lovely! Here's how I play:

Zero in on oblivious text/walker of choice (there will usually be way more than one, so pick carefully! Group texter/walkers are the most fun and it renders maximum embarrassment amongst their peers). Continue walking right towards them, ensuring paths will meet. Stop approximately 3 feet before colllision and stand silent. . .. and wait. . . .wait. . . . and Oooops/crash/HEY!/"chit, sorry...."! (then very quietly, calmly and SWEETLY I whisper: "pay afreakin' tention to where you're going, 'k?)

Then I just continue walking around them. . . .

I love that game. . . Could play it all afternoon. . . Right after Christmas/new years is the best time - that's when all the silly teenage critters are out-and-about "power texting" with their new gadgets while they're attempting to walk the mall. . . (now. . .if I could just find some that are chewing gum at the same time. . . .)

I was in WalMart the other day... {the pictures will be uploaded sometime soon, no doubt Wink), the lady in front of me heading for the checkout, was texting, and so was her eight year old daughter in front of her, her little boy stops dead, big sister trips over little brother, mother trips over the pair of them.

All the other checkout lines were long and this one only had one older couple in front, by the time they, (the family), were checked out by the checker, and the line manager, and I was the first to offer a hand to lift the lady up, her crying traumatized children had picked up the two cell phones and all their shopping that had hit the floor, the other lines had halved and the family was just getting to the checkout!

I was reminded of the woman drivers thread as well as the unexpected fountain! Rolling Eyes

On this mornings (1/20/11) ABC's GMA, they had this lady on their show with her lawyer. They are looking at suing mall security....
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1348923/Im-suing-Shopper-fell-mall-fountain-walking-texting-hits-laughing-security-guards.html?ito=feeds-newsxml
"The woman who accidentally fell into a shopping mall fountain while texting on her mobile phone has spoken about the incident for the first time - and says she is suing.
CCTV footage of Cathy Marrero failing to notice that she was walking straight into a pool of water became a YouTube hit after being watched by 1.5million people.
But the 49-year-old, revealing her identity for the first time, says she doesn't find the video very funny and plans to take the mall in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania to court after accusing staff of laughing instead of helping her out of the water."

They were talking about the possible lawsuit on Bob&Tom this morning, their suggestion was to let her have all the money in the fountain as settlement Laughing

Wow, another great example of "Get over yourself'.

If you don't want to be a youtube hit.....don't be such a moron.

Someone should slap her, and her money grubbing lawyer willing to take this case, much less pursue it should be disbarred. Rolling Eyes
