If You’re Done With Your Shopping, Please Don’t Tell Me
When it comes to holiday shopping, many people are proud to be done, but if you are, please don't tell me.
I am truly happy for you that you have completed your shopping, but every time I hear that someone is done, I get that feeling in my stomach. It's not that I'm not thrilled for you, it's just that it just reminds me how much I haven't done.
For someone who is behind on their shopping, the only thing worse than hearing someone is done, is hearing that in September. Come on, that's just bragging, right? I applaud your discipline and commitment, but please don't rub it in.
I know you'll be home drinking hot cocoa while I search for a parking spot and you'll be singing Christmas carols while I'm wrestling with paper and bows, so please. There's no need to remind me again. If you need me, I'll be searching the "what's left" rack.
