Default Prompt #43 - The Shopping Trip From Hell (Original Prompt)

Black Friday (now Thursday?). Cyber Monday. Christmas Eve.

Give us a story about a bad holiday shopping trip.

Is someone trampled after camping out for three days at Best Buy? Does the stand of televisions at Wal-Mart fall and crush someone? Or is the cashier cranky and wanting to make your life hell? Either way, real or fiction, tell us about a bad way of checking off that holiday gift list!
