I really don’t understand consumerism. I really don’t.

I was ill over Christmas and New Year so have been taking it easy and resting, watching TV and reading the papers.  There was a big hooha over the fact that a lot of shops were opening on Boxing Day in Dublin, Cork and other cities (it will always be Boxing Day to me :)) but I was pretty nauseated by the reports in the next day’s papers of people rushing in as stores opened to buy things they don’t need just because they are in the sales.  And one woman really took the biscuit – she claimed that her day had been “ruined” just because Brown Thomas had not opened as the store had been flooded. She was apparently “heartbroken”.  All I can say is – you are a very sad and pathetic individual who needs to get a life.  Its only a bloody handbag for goodness sake!!!!
