Don’t be a Christmas grump
This morning, I woke up early. Too early for a Saturday morning but it wasn’t your ordinary Saturday morning. This was the last Saturday before Christmas and with only 3 more days to go, I had to make every shopping chance count. So I went to Costco tire shop to have tires installed on our van and wandered into the store to pick up a few things. While inside, I was jostled and pushed in every direction but guess what, I didn’t lose my cool. I kept a positive air about me and went about my business as though I was alone in the store. I watched and listened to my fellow shoppers as they swore and stalked around the store as if someone was trespassing on their personal property.
Now if you are one of those people who get annoyed and stress out over things they cannot control, please don’t go out to the malls. You should have made your shopping earlier anyways. It’s Christmas if you didn’t notice and that means chaos at the stores. With a capital C. You do not own the store. You do not have VIP status. You are not a star. Grin and bear it or stay in the safe confines of your home. Sorry.
Oh, and do not be like that rude woman who saw it fit to cut off everyone in line. If you cannot stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen, plain and simple.
And it’s not just my take.
