I just had to document my thoughts and my experience. I don't know how many of you go shopping on "Black Friday", but just the thought of it makes me shudder. I hate crowds. I hate shopping, and the combination makes me want to go into a coma. However, my husband wants a Wii for Christmas. It is pretty much the only thing he has asked for, so I went to a local electronics store, and no, it was not Best Buy. I'm not a lunatic. I went to FYE. Anyway, I stood in line and personal space was nonexistent. Now I will admit, I looooove my personal space, not just with strangers in the supermarket line, but in my classes, with my friends, pretty much all the time everywhere!! Anyway, there were people all around me. One woman kept creeping up next to me and finally cut me in line! Then there was a guy standing behind me in line who was standing so close that I could smell his breath. It literally made my stomach turn. I stood in that line, mad that I was even in it and becoming more angry by the second at this person literally breathing down my neck. Next year, I am considering shopping with a "personal space hoola hoop".
