So the season of shopping has begun. The stores are filling up, people in the malls have started walking very very slow in a meandering fashion (designed to not allow you to pass them), gifts are being bought, horrendous christmas music is being piped into our subconcious mind. I think that all service personnel (in malls, stores etc) should be given a badge of honour at the end of the Christmas rush. I know I wouldn’t be able to handle so many grumpy, angry, tired people (without killing a few – which would likely reflect badly on the store I worked for).
So happy shopping to you, a little less than a month to go! I really need to figure out what to buy everyone.
