On Christmas Eve, James Bing made his way through the Walmart on 6 Mile Cypress in Fort Myers. However, he wasn't shopping like most of the last minute procrastinators getting presents for the holidays.

"No, I'm not shopping!" exclaimed Bing. "The other people are shopping trying to catch up with me! I've been celebrating all year!" 

Without a cart or a list, He made his way through the store as others searched and rushed to get the perfect gift. "You don't have to get stuff for everybody because it isn't about everybody", said Bing. I asked him if he was shopping for himself then. "No. I'm looking at all the funny people shopping for themselves. Buying stuff..you know, to keep up with people they don't like."

Perhaps just a jokester enjoying the Christmas spirit, Bing had a smile on his face as we saw him make his way through the Walmart.
