What's the worst part of holiday shopping?

  1. 50 people in uniform, 1 person on a register

  2. Constant Christmas music on the loudspeakers

  3. Fighting the crowds everywhere you go

  4. Rude shoppers, rude workers, bad moods everywhere

  5. Stores sold out of what you want to buy

  6. Hah! I did my shopping online this year

    Crowds. I hate being in close proximity to a large number of people. It drives me insane.

    50 people in uniform, 1 person on a register - This is what annoys me most

    Constant Christmas music on the loudspeakers - Usually have my headphones on, mostly to discourage employees to ask if I need help, but also the added benefit of not having to hear Christmas music

    Fighting the crowds everywhere you go - I've stayed away from actual shopping malls and have done most of my shopping during lunch hours so haven't had to deal with too many crowds

    Rude shoppers, rude workers, bad moods everywhere - See above.

    Stores sold out of what you want to buy - Haven't experienced this problem yet.

    Crowds

    traffic

    Rude people

    It's pretty cool outside, so you have to wear a jacket, yet department stores and especially malls turn up the heat to at least 100 degrees!


    Good thing already I did most of my shopping online this year and will only make 1 trip to the mall to pick up my girlfriend a gift!

    I work at Wal-Mart. The things you guys find annoying while shopping there, are 10 times more annoying when you work there. You don't like the constant Christmas music? Try listening to it every frickin' day! Customers are bad enough every other month of the year, but after Thanksgiving they turn into vicious harpies. I rarely find another employee who likes the Christmas season anymore.

    Crowds
    No parking spaces
    Never enough registers open

    The music and attitudes don't bother me, since I listen to my mp3 player while shopping and my music drowns everyone out.

    Oh, me too. But what really kills the holiday shopping season for me is the abundance of Bah Humbuggers and Debbie Downers. :cmad: :csad:

    Well...

    The worst part is being a mall security guard and putting up with all the peoples bull****.

    People are truly sheep and it's hilarious watching people take shopping so seriously like it's a sport or something.

    And people wonder why terrorists attack us, huh? Ha!

    Hey why don't you just do your x-mas shopping on October or November.
    Its easer because you got all your stuff.
