Just in case anyone was wondering: it is possible to get kicked out of Kmart, even if you're a 30+, generally reliable adult.

Bad day - out of proportion frustration with Christmas tree display and associated compulsory cheer - kicking at floor in frustration misfired and I accidentally knocked over several trees, dominoes style - jerk of an assistant manger half my age. You know, the usual.

I'll laugh at this someday...

ETA: In case it wasn't clear, I am amused by this. Sort of. I mean, it was frustrating at the time and embarassing, but at least I get a good story out of it. Definitely there was an undercurrent of the sardonic to the whole experience.

Accidentally or not, you've done something I think many of us can only dream of doing. Kudos. I hope you start laughing about this soon, because it's brilliant.

The more distance I get from it, the funnier it becomes. At the time I was mortified; now I'm a little proud of my chutzpah, accidental or not.

BTW, I saw on Facebook that you were thinking of writing an apology - perhaps take them some hot cross buns?

Oh dear. Oh dear. If this happened in a TV show, I might call it exaggerated. But it does make great story material.

My life... sometimes I swear it should come with a laugh track. But really, you can't do much more than smile at things like this.

You may not have actually intended to kick those Christmas trees, but Christmas trees in September do deserve a kicking!

I hope they had a camera running because it will be a total amusement to everyone, including you, after the fact. How many times have I wished to do the same when seeing a row of displayed holiday trees? Yet you, even if it was unintentional, acted out the reality of what had only been a dream for me. Bravo! I wish I had been there to see it :-)

Thanks. :-) My aunt, who's a section manager at a Walmart, actually said she was living vicariously through me. Because really, mid-September? Sheesh.

I may be the highlight of their store Christmas party this year. I'm sure there was a security camera...
