It's the most wonderful time of the year...to have things you've worked hard to buy stolen by lazy worthless thieves. One man decided enough is enough, and rigged up a fake package on his doorstep with a device that fires shotgun blanks when people try to steal it.
The trees can be losing their leaves and changing colors, the stores packed with seasonal shoppers and lawns decorated with lights but it's not officially Christmas until I find one special item on my desk.
If you need to get those presents to a place far, far away, it's best to ship this week in order to save money. You can ship it closer to Christmas Day, but you'll pay premium rates to make sure those gifts end up under the tree.
