Re: Fun facts about Christmas

Christmas is so stressful now for parents of youngsters. It;s all too much peer pressure.

The greedy retail industry has ruined Christmas.   It's way too commercial these days.  I know as you get older and your kids get older it's not the same, but there is nothing nice about going into a shop at Christmas anymore.

 

I popped into Sainsbury's on my way to work this morning just to pick up one thing to add to my lunch.  It was jam packed, with people getting in eachothers ways, the shelves obliterated etc.  I mean, the damn shop is only closed for ONE DAY!!!!!  What's wrong with people?

 

Apparently they opened at 6am and there were 100s of people waiting to get in there.  Absolutely ridiculous.  Half the stuff will be thrown away, when it could have gone to homeless charities or food banks.

Thanks

Re: Fun facts about Christmas

I find shopping very stressful at Christmas . People are like vultures and you would think there is a war and rationing looming. In my local tesco it's usually full of Asian shopkeepers emptying the shelves of bread and milk because of course they don't close for Christmas.

One of the reasons I now order online for a lunchtime delivery.

Yeah, shopkeepers buying up the bread and milk shouldn't be allowed.  There should be a limit.  The stores know they're doing it

Thanks
