Went to the Mall of America (yes, the largest mall in the country) yesterday to check out the after Christmas sales and return a few things. The excursion started out on a good note when I pulled into the parking lot and found THE best spot in the whole lot. Hello? Check that out!
Nothing that great at any store though. While I was at the Gap the store/mall actually went on lockdown and they made everyone is the store go back to the fitting room for 5 minutes. Yikes! Had no idea what was going on. Afterwards, found out that there were large groups of "juveniles" in groups of 50-200 going around the mall and starting fights, going crazy, taking bags, etc. Random. Cops, security, etc. After the fact, it did seem like there were a lot of young people there, but I assumed it was just because they are out of the school.
