Against my better judgement, I agreed today to take a friend to WalMart. She cannot drive and has two babies, so she needed help getting to the store and also pushing a second cart through the store. I do not like going to WalMart on the weekend, but I knew that she needed to go. So off we went.
O M G !
The place was like a ZOO! The people were milling about the aisles and pushing and shoving each other. I could not believe how crowded it was and how rude and self centered everyone appeared. It was a horrible display of greed and desperation to buy holiday related items.
This put a serious downer on my holiday mood. I have no desire to go through that again, and I suspect that the closer we get to Christmas Eve, the worse it is going to get.
