    I did a lot of shopping yesterday. It sucked, there were gift card loading failures at every store I went to.

    This.

    I literally just came back from one a few minutes ago, they have a gift card rack and even some Christmas cards.

    lol @ suckers who go to malls to shop, only to have their gift put in a drawer somewhere, never to be seen again.

    Cash or gift card = everyone's happy.

    This was my experience as well. Just awful, not to mention the bitchy fat GM at the one store was pissed off at me because I didn't want to pay with credit and wanted to pay cash. She didn't have enough change to last the day and had the nerve to tell her cashier right in front of me "customers should come prepared or not come at all"

    LOL WTF?

    Thankfully not. I've done it before though. I'm not one for firelighters and a shit porno mag from the garage, although I've been tempted to for a laugh.

    I'm usually pretty organised with Christmas, I get presents around the end of November/start of December.

    It's handy because I get to avoid the Christmas crowds at shopping centres whom I loathe so much.

    Christmas shopping? What is the point? I don't buy presents for people unless it is something they desperately need and can't afford for themselves. I really don't like people stressing out over Christmas thinking they HAVE to buy presents for people. Most people don't even really appreciate the gifts anyways.

    Me. Shit, I was about to say I got a gift for everyone but I forgot about my dad. Hmm... I'm sure there's a gift I can re-gift around here.

    I did all my shopping a couple hours ago, and it was all at the liquor store. Easy work.
