I'm allergic to crowds

I went to Wal-Mart this morning to get black socks. The black socks weren't a Christmas present for anyone. I just needed them to wear with slacks. I went at 8 am thinking I'd beat the crowd. I also figured, and this is the really dumb part, no one would be shopping at Wal-Mart on Black Friday. Because it's Wal-Mart. What do they have on Black Friday that's so special you can't get it any other day of the week when there's no crowd?

I probably think this because we live 3 minutes from a Wal-Mart. I also probably think this because unless there's milk involved in my purchase I'd rather buy it online than fight a crowd. I didn't even get out of my car when I discovered the magnitude of my mistake. I also didn't learn my lesson. Because then I cruised right over to Old Navy and did the exact same thing. And then I wised up and went home to shop online during nap time. Online shopping rules.

All those cheapy stores are the first places people hit. xD I learned that the hard way.

Are you saying I'm cheap? Yeah, I've officially learned my lesson. I went to Target this morning at 10 and there was no crowd. It still amazes me how full they were yesterday when they all could have just as easily come the next day with no crowd.

Oh how I'd wish Canada would get on board with this online shopping thing. I'm getting a little bored with the very limited sites available because you are right, online shopping does rock!
