...and out came the wolves

Today we got up early to get to central for the X-mas sales.
With 50 off we were hoping for bargains.With that being said,It was also the first time Kimberly drove to central Gothenburg.Which meant more traffic and more roundabouts...
She handled her self well and had the patience...which is a feat considering she has stated that she is "mrs schumacher" ...hmmm.She also managed to find a 90% "discount" on parking... The indoor parking of the mall is a known as a money monster.She basically found a hidden gem, just around the next corner to the mall is some apartments,they have a "guest" parking lot.A lot of people would probably use it but its hidden...

Ok we found it by accident...we made a few turns around the mall because we had some problems with the lanes....but thats a different story. :)

The first store we got to was H&M...to sum it up,it was like walking into a room full of hungry dogs fighting over a bone...women in various ages had a predatory look over them...as the minority of men accompanying their girl friends and wives played the part of static objects.The women were having a freenzy over the various items...pushing and shoving the "competition" away.What women dont understand is that it sucks the life force out of men....which answers the question of why men get gray hair or worst... go bald.(only applies to men accompanying their loved ones on every sale there is)

At the end of the day just seeing my wife with a smile because she made a bargain or hear the phrase "this will look so good with..." together with a priceless look, makes it all worthwhile.
