It Happened

I had one night to myself last night. I'd been looking forward to it all day, the way you'd look forward to a gala cocktail party. I'd planned to get Thai and kick back with bad TV. But driving home, I realised the night was young, and I wasn't hungry yet, so I'd just pop into the shops and buy some Christmasy things.

An hour and a half later (including a good 20 minutes just staring at aisles and aisles of cards and slowly going mad) I was stroppy, had only bought one gift (and that was for the neighbours at work?!) and been run over by a fucking woman with her trolley ("I didn't see you there" - "that's why you've got eyes" *insert Christmas spirit*).

You actually said "that's why you've got eyes"???

God, I would have laughed and laughed if I had witnessed that!

Christmas shopping really brings out the insanity. I hate, hate, hate trying to find a car park during the Christmas shopping period (and January sales). Urgh.

Oh I said it. She didn't even apologise, or sound like she was sorry.

It really does bring out the worst in people, at a time when it should be bringing out the best.

That is why prams and trolleys should be banned - everywhere!

No, they should just have IQ tests at the door. At the movies also, for people who can't switch their phones off. I've started lashing out at these cretins too. I kind of like being the cantankerous young lady.

That's why I do almost all of my shopping on-line. I can't stand it. Though I LOVE buying people presents, I just hate the moronic crowds.
