Excuse Me, Pardon Me

Yesterday I did some Christmas shopping, it was seniors day at Shopper’s so I tagged along with BA and did some stocking stuffer shopping for R, then I went to the dreaded mall.  I know that for some of you this might be hard to believe, but I HATE the mall.  I also hate large stores that are invariably busy, like the Superstore, Costco on a Saturday, Holt Renfrew during the holidays (which also has snotty staff) and Walmart.  I love buying presents for my family and friends who are on my nice list, and it’s no secret that I also like to buy myself new stuff from time to time :).  What I don’t love is people in a busy shopping environment.  I practically break out in hives if I am asked to attend Yorkdale mall with anyone, it doesn’t seem to matter what day or time it is at that mall, it is always packed with people.  People shopping are unpredictable, they don’t seem to have any consideration for the environment around them, nor for their fellow shoppers.  In my experience when you remove people from overcrowded environments they are great, but in that environment they are rude and uncivilized.  The ones that really get me are the rude stroller shoppers, do you really think that because you have recently added to world population that it entitles you to more than someone without a stroller?   I know that some people love to shop last-minute and thrive off of the energy of the pushy panicked people in the mall, I am just not one of those people.  In fact, I have done most of my shopping at home online, the UPS, Purolator, Canada Post and FedEx drivers have become quite familiar with our house.  I almost feel like we should leave them a Christmas gift, I am going to miss them when the holiday season is over.  Happy shopping my friends!

    You inherited that from your parents. I could not agree more, except for a few really well meant presents that need the personal touch.
