The Grove: Family-safe shopping?

I was strolling at the Grove a couple weeks ago, taking in the pseudo-European thoroughfare and riding on the fake trolley, when I noticed this:

Yeah, that's right - Hello Kitty. Shot in the head. And this is a family shopping area? As a bonus, this art store was next door to American Girl Place, so you can just envision the little girls happily clutching their dolls as they leave AGP, only to burst into tears when they see Hello Kitty dripping with blood. That's sick, people.

However, I did get pretty excited when the trolley almost ran this woman over:

As the trolley of death was bearing down, the trolley driver rang the bell, but he sure as hell didn't slow down! This woman was just strolling along, enjoying the sunshine, completely oblivious to the 10-ton trolley that was seconds away from crushing her. And the woman's husband? Well, he got out of the way, but he didn't seem too concerned about the trolley bearing down on his wife.

UPDATE: The trolley did not hit the woman. She was mercifully spared a Grove-tastic death.


  • Good to know no real violence/accident transpired.
