And shopping was hell,
full of shoppers intent on the melee (yes I know it doesn't rhyme)..
walking this way,
then stopping suddenly, causing me to say 'pardon me'
and sorry for causing you to bump into me.
Shelves were emptying quick as a flash,
people were hurrying to pay with their cash.
Freedom I sought, even in the rain
Shopping before Christmas is always a pain.
We are up visiting friends, and they needed to go shopping in the local Westfield Centre in Derby, now SOH knows I see shopping as a penance, but they do authentic cornish pasties in the shopping centre and we wanted to get one for a colleague at work. We escaped after a few hours, but already tempers were beginning to fray as stocks grew shorter and people wanted items - I was glad to get out in the fresh air and the rain, at least I could breathe better, and walk without tripping over the person's feet in front of me.
