Still Christmas Madne$$
People are so crazy!!!
By now I should have learned my lesson that waiting until the last minute to complete my Christmas shopping is still not a good idea. There's just something about procrastination that keeps calling me like crack! LOL! Something inside me must like the hustle and bustle of the last minute rush.
So once again I find myself out in the last minute Christmas rush shopping like a mad woman! What's funny is every year I have to make the same announcement about getting bumped. Why do people bump into you and not say "excuse me" or even acknowledge that they've bumped you? Is this just a west coast thing? Are you all in the southern/eastern states safe from this rudeness? I guess this is one of the problems about being short and cute. ; ) I'm assuming my near Oompa Loompa status also makes me invisible!
I'm sure I've explained this before, but every single year I have to make an announcement. It's a very simple but effective one. Very loudly you exclaim "IF I GET BUMPED ONE MORE (expletive if necessary depending on the crowd) TIME!" That's pretty much it. I guess the impending threat of what is not said is enough because people usually steer clear!
