Merry Christmas to all of you! although I'm one day late.
Just to be clear on things, I have never actually experienced shopping in Boxing Day in my life before today (inevitably dragged to go by parents).
What made me want to rant about this, as a matter of fact, is my experience with today.
You're put into a bustling crowd with literally no air to breathe but the caustic body odour of those sweaty bogans around you. OH and I must add, the temperature was soaring and the weather was rather humid, so yes I was close to hell.
People lose all dignity when shopping during Boxing Day. Some people camp overnight to be first ones in line, just to save 15% off a dress. Wow if you did that, that means you probably couldn't afford them in the first place! You know you hit rock bottom when you're sleeping on the sidewalk.
To make matters worse, every five-seven turns, you will see two females arguing over who saw what piece of clothing first!
Not only is it difficult to move around, but once you have finally found clothes that actually looks good and isn't a size XXXXL, you have to make the arduous trek to the fitting room which (guess what?) has a long as line - with smelly bogans yes.
Once you've finally gotten a fitting room and tried out your clothing, you begin to squeeze past the barbarians surrounding you to reach the cashiers, which happen to have a line consisting of 40 people.
40 people with an average of 1 minute to serve a customer.
Maths Extension 2 skills tell me that it will take you 40 minutes to reach the cashier. Good Luck Brave Shopper.
To sum up this whole rant, all problems arise due to the number of people that are with you at the mall.
Moral of the story: You better shop online during Boxing Day, if you don't well then, be prepared for all the hassle and pray your girlfriend/wife does not come along.
