Not only Christmas but all kind of shopping just because of a date (most of them invented just for this purpose) !!!

Man commits suicide at mall after girlfriend insists on buying more shoes

.....If my wife don`t stop shopping I think I`ll do the same thing this guy did (jump from the mall's 7th floor)....to her, lol

Man, this guy sure got desperate !!! ....not sure if I sorrow or if I laugh

I did all mine online from the comfort of my chair in 30 mins this year

I too hate shopping, I used to refuse going shopping with all 3 of my ex wives because they would look around for hours and then go back to the first shop and buy the first ruddy thing they looked at ...gggggrrrrrr.
I think you have ranted an epic rant for MANkind

Me too, I did all my shopping on Amazon yesterday and spent just over 20 quid. I'm only getting my god son and parents presents. I might get my brother something, but he owes me £50, so he can wait till next year.

I can't stand going shopping. Avoid it at all costs. The idea of going to a mall or out of town shopping centre sends a shiver down my spine. I can see how doing it with a pushy woman looking for shoes could drive a man to look for the highest balcony.

Fear not dear Brother, help is on the way!
I used to be one of the type to debt myself to the best of my ability every December, I mean full on.
I remember the malls this time of year were always packed shoulder to shoulder with bustling people.
Just recently I have braved the wilds of my local maul....err mall to grab some gifts for my still mostly asleep bride.
And on each occasion I have noticed that there are not that many folks out shopping.
People are little by little figuring out the game, so know that help is on the way!
I think if the crap that I was buying was still made in the US, I'd become a real X-mass shopper again.
But all of our cash nowadays ends up going to some megacorp in some offshore non taxed account.
Lack of circulation kills any body, must get the economy going, kill big corps, kill banks, and get money out of politics.

You don't NEED to buy anything. Not even for those kids, not even because 'it's fun to see them open their presents'.

Everybody always gets too much, or nothing they really want or need, the whole thing is a commercialized version of purgatory. YOU'RE SUPPORTING THE BANKSTERS AND THE CRIMINAL ENTERPRISES AND THE EXPLOITATION OF THE PLANET, WHEN WILL YOU GET THAT?

Go over to the Heifer Project or something like it, donate the money (if you have any) that you would have spent on plastic crap and buy a goat or a calf for a family and village with nothing on the other side of the world, and announce to your family that those sweaters that would've itched anyways, and the new electronic toy that would have meant they ignored you for the next year solid, has been donated to help an entire village survive.

If that doesn't give them a warm feeling, then perhaps a nice Christmas meal and a long walk in the snow might. It's the Winter Solstice, the days will get longer now! (sorry, Aussies...)

Nice to see I am not the only lady that hates shopping. My hubby thinks I'm odd, but is grateful for it none the less.
We are only buying for nieces and nephews this year, as they are mostly all young, some still believing in the big jolly guy.
Although my sons will get the dreaded undies and socks.

Why is it that most young guys don't buy them for themselves?

Wait what do you mean they still believe in the big Jolly Guy? Do you mean Father Christmas and are you insinuating he is not real?



Nooooooooooo!!!

He is real I have heard his bells and he leaves me tangerines in my big sock.

Oh and the reason is we don't buy socks and knickers (sorry I have always called them knickers) is that we men can wear a pair of socks with many a hole in them and the same with knickers.
Heck I still wear a pair of paisley Y-fronts from the mid 80's

I feel you OP...people are so barge-y and rude, the stores are so crammed with absolute junk you can barely sort through it and all of the good stuff is picked over or gone. I try to get all of my Christmas shopping done by the weekend before Thanksgiving, just to enjoy the season a bit more.

I made the mistake of going into Target the other night...When I went to check out, I walked into an aisle that was open then backed up momentarily because something on the end cap caught my eye. I took a glance and then turned and walked the one step toward the conveyor and put my items down on it.

The cashier looked at me and snarkily said, "Ugh, this job can be soooo annoying!" For a second I was confused. Then I realized - in the brief moment that I turned back to look at the end cap - she turned off her register sign. LOL!

I laughed, picked up my three books and went to another register. While I commiserate with her about retail jobs, she didn't have to be so ridiculous about it.


Then I went to Home Depot, which was in total chaos because they were running out of Christmas lights and people were panicking, it was a free-for-all. LOL! The young man working that area was polite, cheerful, funny and very, very helpful. So, thanks to him for salvaging my evening with his good spirits.
