Have a death wish? Then, may I recommend shopping the Black Friday sales. If the crazy lines and caffeine-hyped soccer moms are not enough to scare you off, then maybe this is: people wear their pajamas. In public. With slippers. I’m not kidding you. I can handle the jerks that try to nudge their way up to the caution tape in front of you just so they can get their hands on the latest, greatest Zhu Zhu. I can even handle the ones that climb pyramids of computer monitors and start tossing them down to their grandmas standing by the carts. I’d go so far as to say I would put up with the velour-jumpsuit clad Mother of the Year nominees who bring their children to sleep in shopping carts at 4:00 in the morning. However, every time I see one of these pj-clad people I just want to lay down on the linoleum and die. All hope for humanity leaves my body.
The worst part? Some of these people aren’t even slobs. They are showered, their hair is done, their make-up is on, they are sipping on $5 Starbucks coffees. Do they think we won’t notice that they FORGOT TO PUT REAL PANTS ON? I know there is a fine line between Ugg boots and bunny slippers, but if your shoes have eyeballs you shouldn’t leave the house in them.
Thank Santa for Cyber Monday! And, if you’re looking for some comfortable bottoms to shop in, I suggest the Hanes over in Aisle 5.
