Tis the Season of … Giving? (gift cards)
Lately my email junk mail has gotten crazy. Which for me is about 20-30 emails a day trying to give me stuff I didn’t ask for and don’t want. Stores that are nowhere near me, and even if they were, I wouldn’t shop at are sending me gift cards. And even if they were near me etc, there is something they should know about me first, before they send me these gift cards…. drum roll here….
I fucking hate shopping!!
Yes I am a woman who hates shopping! lol loathe it, detest it, hate it!! If I must go into a store, it’s done and dusted in less than an hour and that is if the checkout takes time. If there is not waiting, it’s more likely to be half an hour. I’m in with a list and a mission. The military might like me, the store? lol Not so much. They like people to wander and see all the goodies and make impulse buys. That’s how they make their money after all. It’s why they do the whole product placement thingy they do. (Where they make their real money)
Saturday night my old mouse gave out and I had to go to Walmart. I was in and out of there in less than 10 minutes. Went straight to electronics and paid at their desk, instead of the main checkout aisles. It took me longer to get there, and longer to get home (even though I live less than 10 minutes away) than it did to shop. lol
My exceptions are music stores and used book stores. There you’ll find me sitting on the floor or asking for a chair. 😛 But nowhere else!
So will these gift cards ever be used? Not effing likely! Yeah cleared out of junk mail.
