Aleigh and I were at the Southpark Mall on Sunday (my favorite shopping mecca when in Charlotte). During our trip, we went into the Apple store to ooh and ahh over the coolness (don't judge me...we still don't have any Apple stores in Charleston) and on our way out I noticed that the window display had MY very same pink Nano in the window. I might have squealed a little bit, as I love my iPod more than I love some of my family members. Al decided to take a detour into the women's room, so while I was standing there I decided to snap a photo of the window display with my digital camera.
As soon as I pulled out my camera, a little man (you can see part of him to the far right of the photo) wearing a mall security guard uniform came up to me and mumbled something.
"What?" (I said as I snapped some photos.)
"You caint take pitchers in the mall."
"You caint take pitchers."
I raised my eyebrow into the "you didn't answer my damn question" position.
He put his hand on his "holster" of what I assume was pepper spray.
I nodded toward a nearby common area where a family who clearly had never been to a mall before was madly snapping photos of each other. "So no one can take photos in this mall? Or is it just me?"
"You caint take pitchers of stores."
"Really? I guess you have to put me in mall jail then." I laughed like I was joking, but I really wasn't because I thought it might be fun to be "detained" by the mall police. Can you call them police? They can't carry firearms.
He walked away, presumably to go tell the family from Bumf*ck, NC, that they "caint take pitchers in the mall." I snapped a few more before putting my camera away, just to be a bitch.
