I hate shopping? I really really do.
has been complaining of back pain, and when she was pregnant with Sarah
, I had bought her a vibrating back pillow at a office supply store where I was gaming so it would help with sitting and driving. But like most things around here, we gave away baby stuff we don't
need and now folks give us now stuff we need.
But she gave a good friend her vibrating pillow and hasn't
gotten it back yet. So like a good husband I went out in search of one. With Sarah
in tow, after work, while Kim
was at work.Oy Vey
Went to the local office supply place. After 20 minutes of fruitless searching
, I asked someone. No, they don't
carry it. Why? I don't
know, but their other store did 60 miles away back then....so we went to the mall with Sarah
having gotten some play money.
We then started at Sears. I mean, its Sears, they have to have it right? After searching the bedding section, I asked. No, they only carry them during the holiday season. Why I'll never know, but they don't
have it. So we trudged(or rather, I trudged, Sarah
was tired, so I carried her and the stuffed animal she got) ALL the way to the other end of the mall to Another chain store.
No, they don't
have it. Of course they might have, but for some reason I couldn't
find a single sales rep ANYWHERE in this department store. Unless I wanted makeup. The makeup section was fully stocked with 6 employees.....while the entire bedding section, layaway, and 3 registers didn't
have a single one.
So we left the mall. And drove across the way to Bed, Bath and Beyond. I mean, it has bedding, it should have them, right? But no. After 2 laps around the circular store and a lollipop
, we flag down one of the 2 employees there(because
even wearing name tags, so maybe there was more than 2 there), they look around and they too are surprised
have them. They lady tries to be helpful as says "have you looked in our online store?" Like that's
suppose to help get it by tonight as a surprise
. If I have to shop online, it certainly wont be here.
So back in the car and off to WalMart
. Why Walmart
? Because it has everything usually and it has a McDonald's, as its an hour past Sarah's
dinner time. So one happy meal later we wander through Walmart
. After one circular pass and saying hello to someone we know, we find not one, but TWO vibrating pillows. Of course we buy both, long with a princess chair for Sarah
So, while you all knock Walmart
, it actually HAS the stuff I need, rather than all the other crappy places that wasted my time....So Sarah
and I get home at 8pm for bath and bed....ugh.
two freaking hours to find one little item. I hate shopping.
