I really should remember to stock up a month before Christmas on groceries.

I went today to pick up last minute fresh veggies for a relish tray and it was HORRID. So many rude people, I got in and out as fast as possible.

Things aren’t so crazy here. I am glad! Just smiling faces and lots of “merry christmases!” I don’t know if it would be the case tomorrow though 😉

I bought a last minute gift… I went to wrap it and they left a security tag on it. A big honkin’ black security tag. (Clearly their system is working great) Soooo I get to venture back out tomorrow to have this thing removed from said gift. -_- Siiiiiigh. I do not want to go out there again.

I live just around the corner from a major mall, and traffic is HORRIBLE. I can’t get anywhere easily because it is so backed up to turn onto the main road to get to the mall. Why would anyone resort to last minute shopping? It’s insane.

I remember around Thanksgiving I desperately needed milk and paper towels, and I deeply regreted not stocking up beforehand because the grocery store was not kind to me! I feel ya, OP!

@HappySky7:  There are about a million quick and easy ways to remove those things at home. Just Google it. Also, I am not a thief. My father was a police officer and always joked about the security tag nonsense. Likewise, I can remove a padlock in a 2.5 seconds. Tongue Out

@aliavenue:  I did. I am worried I’m going to ruin the garment trying these methods. :/

I sent my husband for groceries yesterday so I didn’t have any experiences with the crush of people! I love Christmas but I can’t wait until stores are back to normal!
