Default Last minte shoppers have lost their minds!

i work at our local KMart and i have to tell you that most of the shoppers have lost their minds! They wander aimlessly up and down the aisles with this dazed "deer in the headlights" look. I have had more than a few customers look at me and say "what am i doing here?"

It is like a scene out of "The Night of the Living Dead Shoppers." They wander aimlessly around the malls and superstores yelling "Bargins, More Bargins!!!!"

I was at the grocery store today and I have never seen it that full of people in such a big hurry in the middle of the day. I bet it will be 100% worse tonight about 5:30pm when everyone is off of work. When I drove by the Walmart here the parking lot was very full which means the inside had to be insane (superwalmarts have very, very large parking lots).

Be afraid, be very afraid Sue, I went last nite and it was an unbelievable frenzy at the Mall, the clothes in the stores (even the big ones like Macy's) were strewn all over the floor, the lines were bizzare and the people rude. Glad I'm done. Just have to face the crowd at the Supermarket tomorrow after work. Leaving work at noon so have time to spend on line in the Supermarket.

Good luck. And Happy Holidays to all.

I went out to the mall today to do some last minute shopping........next year, if I have the same stupid idea, would someone PLEASE shoot me? I cannot believe the masses of humanity out there in the middle of the day - cannot imagine what it is like in the evening! I am now completely DONE for the holiday! One more gift to wrap and that is it!

I work in a big grocery store, and not looking forward to today, the holidays seem to bring the worst out in people, its not going to be fun! Its amazing that so many people wait till the last minute??? I even see frozen turkeys being bought??

Everyone enjoy the holidays!

I thought it was only us Brits that are that manic! There was almost a fist fight in my food shop over turkeys yesterday morning. You couldn't move and the traffic was the pits. Next year I think I'm going to hibernate, good night from rainy old England,
