Adventures in Holiday Shopping

Hello wonderful friends.  It's hard to believe that Thanksgiving is almost here again.  The holidays seem to come faster each year.  I got up early and headed to the local chain store to pick up all my items for cooking our holiday dinner. You gotta love mega stores, they really are huge and you can find practically everything.  All the hustle and bustle in the stores.  The holidays are here!!!!

I saw the nicest holiday gesture when I pulled into the parking lot.  I was just stunned at how far people will go to keep you from getting into trouble if you accidentally park in the handicapped parking spot but you're not actually handicapped. I was truly touched at how much some people really do care.
Don't fucking park in a handicap spot @Claudia Vancoppenolle we gaan is wat folie aanschaffen :-D


Walking across the parking lot I had tears in my eyes because of the touching gesture someone had displayed toward keeping that poor person out of trouble for parking in the wrong spot. He might've gotten a ticket or towed or something, oh my.

I did feel sorry for this guy.  He was heading into a parking spot and some cute little old lady cut him off and got the spot.  He was really angry at first but she made a good argument as to why she should have the parking spot instead of him and he fully understood and even agreed with her.  So sweet.




Wow, so much holiday spirit!  I am just to moved for words to describe it.

Then when I went through the automatic doors I was immediately greeted by the greeter. Those are the people that stand at the doors and welcome you to enhance your shopping experience. They are always smiling and so happy that you have decided to come where they work to do your business.




If you have trouble getting around they have those cute little riding carts for the handicapped readily available.  The greeters are always ready to tell you where to go if you ask for help with these carts.  Wow, don't you love the holidays.
  Why, that looks like some of the store greeters (bygod)

Everybody patiently waits in line for the sale to start.   I love this time of year, people seem to be just a little bit nicer.  They are always ready to let you cut in line if you are in a hurry.  It's truly amazing.





This lady was shopping for a new computer.  I feel for her.  She kept telling the sales person what she was looking for but there just seemed to be a communication issue for them.





This lady got all dressed up to go shopping.  I just don't have the energy to put this much effort in to how I look to go shopping.  I just put on a little mascara and I'm ready to shop.

I was looking for toys for my 2 year old for Christmas but there were a lot of people in the toy aisle so I thought I'd find my little guys toys later.


This poor girl was in line when she found out her boyfriend was cheating on her.  She handled it really well, seriously, everyone in the store can tell you she did.


This dear got confused about what the express lane was used for but it worked out well because there were some other friendly shoppers there that explained it to her, really well.


I don't always go to a express lane with 12 items or less, but when I do I get some dumb ass that can't count in front of me


It is such an awesome shopping experience.  I met this guy on my way out that was so happy that he told the greeter...

Happy holidays everyone.  Enjoy your shopping experiences.

  2. Hi Linda
    We have to really remember not to sweat the small stuff. People get so worked up when they are shopping you just gotta find the humor in it. We've got to remember what the holiday season is all about. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and thank you for visiting with me today.

  9. In today's competitive world one thing that has become scarce in our lives is - 'TIME'. Time has become the most important commodity for working as well as non-working segment of our society. In this age of growing popularity of shopping malls due to time and resources constraint, sometimes it becomes difficult to physically go out. Shopping is inevitable for everyone whether we like it or not, as shopping is done right from basic commodities online shopping stores India luxury goods. Hence the new concept that enables us to do shopping at a click of a mouse is 'Online Shopping'.

  18. Costume jewellery has been part of our culture for hundreds of years and the trend for people wanting to own beautiful but affordable jewellery still continues today. Another popular name for costume jewellery is fashion jewellery. However, there has been some discussion as to whether 'fashion jewellery' is an appropriate term to use and is more suited  to classify 'real' or 'fine' jewellery. As a consequence there is some confusion as to the correct term to use when referring to cheap jewellery, with the most common question being ' is there a difference between costume where is the closest pawn shop to my location and fashion jewellery?"

  19. Party, now there's an interesting word. Is that party as in, "The party of the first part" or is that bachelor parties as in, "Republican"? Maybe it's party as in, "How many in your party?" As the writer, I get to decide, sometimes, but not this time.

  24. After 20 years of working with Senior Executives across the world it's interesting to see the mistakes when appointing Senior Executives. There can be many reasons why, but one reason is not understanding the differences of working in a Family Business and a Non-Family Business. I've recently met several Senior Executives who are unhappy with their employment because of this lack of knowledge and understanding and I'm meeting Business owners who didn't realise there was a difference. These Business Owners feel that money and title is enough and stick to the Mantra of "Surely experienced 'C' level Executives can work in any company?" Organic Cosmetics
