A WOMAN out Christmas shopping is shocked and angered by the number of other people doing exactly the same.
Joanna Kramer could barely contain her contempt for the heaving crowds of Christmas shoppers as she battled her way through them to buy some last-minute gifts and nibbles.
Kramer said: “Popping to the shops is murder at this time of year, and I should know because I always leave it until now to buy food and presents for the big day.
“Why can’t people use their common sense and order everything they need online? That’s what I asked the knackered-looking check out girl in Waterstones while I waited for her to scan the huge stack of books I’d picked up.
“As I struggled through town laden with bags I couldn’t help but wonder if everyone except me has forgotten the true meaning of Christmas. It’s not all about buying things, I said to myself as I nipped into Anne Summers to purchase some seasonal nipple tassels for Diane’s eldest.
“Although if you think this is bad you should see the Boxing Day sales. I’m usually forced to elbow someone hard in the face just to grab a discounted telly, it’s disgusting.”
