But it's interesting how our minds can be so easily influenced in the spur of the moment. I got a little freaked out and I'm a little scared to go inside that store. Is it even possible to leave without buying something? Has anyone ever done that before? :)

Oh yeah. I'm a chronic non-shopper, and get dragged to the mall by my wife all the time. Can't remember the last time I actually bought anything there, except paying for her purchases if she forgot her wallet...

And the irony of that is this: the sole reason that the company I work for (Nielsen Media Research, for the record) exists is so that companies can target their TV ads better and get us to buy more stuff. I don't approve at all of the business I'm in. But, it's a paycheck, so whatever. Time for a career change, I think...
