    How I See The Mall...

    To me, the mall is a place where people go to shop and be loud at the same time. They all get together and shop together, which is great. The problem i have with the mall is that while they are enjoying their time, they have to speak over another group, who have to speak over...

    Malls

    Chaos

    Oh do I so subscribe to this group and the meaning of  mall chaos. Mall chaos consists of 75 or more stores selling more goods than the eyes can ever behold and 2,000 people squeezing in there to find a bargain! . Not to mention that half of these stores all carry...

    Malls Annoy Me....

    always have.  Even when I was younger, I was like "No, I don't wanna go".  I think it was the crowds of retarded people.  For the most part, I am nice, but when I get irritated, it's bad and I cannot help what comes out of my mouth.  There are always...

    The Mall

    I don't care for the mall that much it's pretty much just set up for women anyway, women's clothing and stuff they like. They do have a music store that I like to go to every once in a while so I can see what's new and feel old lol. My last trip to the mall was kind of fun. The...

    Why go. Those places feed sickness.

    Overpriced everything on sale. Lol. Crowds. Greedy crowds. Or judgemental morons. Or thugs. Wasting money on trends. Yuk.

    Lay It Out For You

    Two little ones and a teen means malls are off limits! They run in every direction, pulling on clothing, bored out of the minds while the teen pics through stuff and tries on every freakin' thing she can find. No matter that we can't afford the stuff she looks at in any ways and...

    It's The Crowds.

    The only reason for this is that I have a hard time being in crowds. Being in a crowd can set off my anxiety and if I do go to a mall I try to pick the least busy times so I can be in grab what I need and get out!

    The noise and crowds make me fretful and headachy, so I go there only when I need something badly.

    Colonoscopy Vs. Mall

    I hate the mall so much, I would do anything instead. Normally I shop at Sams. One member of the family has been after me to shop "normally" for a few years, and I told him that 1) I do not have time and 2) If you do not like my shopping habits, you do it. He...

    Used To Go All The Time But No More

    Years ago I'd visit the malls in my area on a regular basis, about once or twice a week, it was how I spent some of my free time.  I used to buy stuff, not always things I needed but I wanted them.  Fortunately I never got into debt over this then somewhere along the...

    Me, Too

    I'm not much of a city person, or materialist, anyway.  Most of my shopping I do online.  It's easier and much nicer to avoid the crowds and the awful attitudes and the consumerism.

    Way Too Many People!!

    one of the worst areas of the mall has to be

    the mall kiosk, whenever I go to the mall I have to look to side and try to avoid any eye contact with the kiosk people...when making eye contact they become the predator and I become the prey

    Malls Are Dying

    Malls in suburban America are dying a slow death. Their heydays were in the sixties through the early nineties. When you go to one today there are the same stores selling shoes, jewellery and clothes for moms and women college age and younger. The department stores are still...
