Warning: Very mean-spirited, ranting, complaining post. →
[More:] I bought a baby gift on Saturday for a friend who just adopted a baby... and although we called her and asked her what she needed, and told her we wanted to buy something significant (like, expensive and necessary or helpful), so she should tell us what she really needed - she said she would have to think about it. Which meant that we had to buy a "marker gift" for coming to the house and seeing the baby.
And I got him some ridiculously expensive summer clothes, but they were half off since it was July. But now she called to say that they don't fit, so we should turn them back for Fall/Winter clothes. Arrrgh. We'll probably get a hat for the price of half-off two cute T-Shirts and shorts.
Plus, I hate shopping with a fiery passion.
It was a fucking big deal for us to walk a million miles to a super-overpriced department store to spend too much on half-priced name-brand stuff. I haven't even bought anything for myself in about three years; I seriously wear the same five things over and over.
And now? I have to take this stuff back, and try to buy something Fall? omg just kill me now. Plus we're supposed to go out of town the day after tomorrow. Fuck me.
I know this is small and mean, but we really just wanted to buy her something "big" that she needed, and we're still on the line for that, but in the meantime, the "something small" got a lot bigger.
I hate shopping.
