Angry Shoppers

On Saturday, Rich & I decided to go across the river to go shopping at the mall over there because they have more (and better) stores. Overall, the trip was pretty much a bust.

First, we went to the Verizon store because Rich's cell phone wouldn't hold a charge & they couldn't help us, but they repeatedly told us that we could add a texting plan for just $5 a month...we don't care about texting!!! Fix the phone!!!!

Then, we went onward to Circuit City because we're thinking about saving up for a computer and we wanted to see what was out there. A sales guy told us about this amazing deal on a computer package (tower, monitor, and printer). Anyways, it turned out that the sales guy was mistaken and there was no such deal.

After that, we forged on to the mall to go b-r-a shopping. Rich had a good idea that I should get sized before we went looking for my "special" size. So, I went to the intimates department at Macy's and awkwardly asked if someone would size me. A woman came over and sized me and told me that my size is 34C. I tried to politely explain to the woman that I was certain that was the wrong size, but she told me about how you can wear a cup smaller with a larger band size BLAH BLAH BLAH...I know, I've been manipulating my b-r-a size for the past DECADE!!! I was so frustrated at this point that I found Rich and we left the department store.

Finally, we went to the Lindt chocolate store. I think at this point Rich just wanted to make me happy and was willing to try anything. They were having a buy 1 get 1 free sale on their boxed chocolates, so we got 2 boxes (I have to share 1 with his sisters). When we got home, I opened my box of chocolates and they were gross. I have never before had bad Lindt chocolates, so I was very disappointed.

So for all of you that didn't know it before, I hate shopping. I love grocery shopping, but I don't think I'll be going to the mall anytime soon.

Amen sista! Sorry you had such a bad day! I hate shopping, especially bra shopping! It can be so frustrating. I wish I could have a personal shopper do it all for me and I just get to wear all the great clothes. I also agree w/ u on the grocery shopping...I like it. :) Unless you don't have time or energy, and then it can be a pain.
