TT #23

This week is dedicated to shopping horrors! Things that drive me crazy while shopping. I should confess, I hate to shop. I know! I’m not normal.

1. The people the in the grocery store that always leave their cart in the middle of the isle.
2. Finding a parking spot at the mall anytime between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
3. Following my daughter from store to store while she tries to find the perfect outfit.
4. Being told to buy that impossible to find present for one of my nieces or nephews.
5. Waiting in line forever.
6. Having the store open a new check out line and the people from the back of the line jump in front of everyone.
7. Price checks that take forever.
8. Having someone pull into the parking spot, you’ve been waiting for.
9. While shopping online: Loosing connection after you enter all your info.
10. Finding the perfect outfit but it’s too small. (At least once in a while it could be too big!)
11. Trying on clothes in the dressing room.
12. Taking the clothes back that don’t fit. I wouldn’t have bought them if I’d tried them on in the dressing room.
13. Listening to dh complain while carrying the bags. Doesn’t he know that’s in a dh’s job description.

Argh. I'm frustrated just reading these! :)

I'll add one more to shopping online--going through the whole process, only to find out at the very end that they won't ship to an APO address. grrr.

I hate to shop too, so you're not alone there. Ugh! It's horrible and people are so rude. I much prefer online shopping!

Happy TT!

*LOL* I can so relate to these - especially #4. I'd add people who leave the shopping carts in the parking spaces making it impossible to park.

I don't hate all shopping, take me to any bookstore and I'm happy as a clam. And I don't mind grocery shopping (my regular grocery store just happens to be right next to the local Barnes and Noble- hmm, imagine that). Happy TT. :)

My advise, take a Xanex before heading out for your holiday shopping. If not, you'll get out of the spirit really quick and instead, want to hurt someone really bad. I think this is the only time of year when the really ignorant people come Happy TT and thanks for stopping by.

I hate shopping. I so hear you on all of these!

I hate most shopping that can't be done online ANY time of the year, so I hear you on this one.

Hang in there. In a month, it'll be all over and we can park again (although, do you have this new trend near you where the malls are ripping up the parking lots to put in free-standing buildings? Can someone explain the logic behind this? Please?)

Happy TT, LA!!! Hope you're writing something good!

i'll end up doing last minute running around this year - it always seems to be so crazy this time of year at the office. the mall makes me break out into hives. traffic is so bad that instead of the usual half hour drive home it took an hour.
