Next stop was to head for the Mall. On my way there I got to a set of traffic lights - I had a green light but luckily I was paying attention because some idiot just flew through the red light! Didn't even blink..... It made me wonder - how can you drive with your head up your
Next bundle of fun.....the Mall Parking Lot. Seriously, they should have someone at the entrance handing out blood pressure pills before you are allowed to enter the parking lot. Oh my nerves. The cars are going every which way, nobody will give anyone a break to turn in, and if a parking space does open up - its like a stock car derby. Its a free for all. And then, if by some chance, a car does stop and left you through - sure enough a bunch of pedestrians will step out in front of you! Arrrgh.....
The final insult......department stores that are full of shoppers with only 2 checkouts open. In my line the old couple in front of me were quaint (NOT). You could hear him yapping all over the store and his wife resembled Loretta Lynn circa 1970. Big ass beehive hair-do etc. The line is getting longer and then the girl finishes ringing in their order and he asks how much were the batteries. The cashier checked the receipt $6. OMG......He got all excited and yelling that they were on sale for $5. He is insistent and loud and the rest of us are stuck waiting. I heard the woman behind me tell her husband to give the guy $1 so we could get out of there. I may have snorted out loud. He is not leaving until she gives him the sale price.
So we wait for someone to confirm the price. And he is still yapping. Eventually the supervisor comes and tells him its the Energizer batteries on sale NOT Duracell. Sooooooo, after all that fuss over $1 and making everyone wait - he decides to take them anyway for the $6.................... He is just lucky I didn't find a "special" place to put his batteries!!
Isn't shopping during the holidays fun?? I'm still plugging away on the Angel rug border and am patiently (not) waiting for my new cutterheads to arrive. It seems like it is taking forever to get here.
Maybe Santa will bring me patience this year.....(not likely)
