Am I the only one who feels like I wasted the day and money on things I can’t account for!? I’ve been out since the butt-crack of dawn, and finally I get home to amire my spoils, yet….I have none. Granted I don’t really have to shop for that many people, but still, you’d think that with all of the shopping deals and steals out there I’d have least came home with something worthwhile right? WRONG.
This Black Friday, was total RED for me. All I got was a sweater from some random boutique and a pair of too small and too high booties from Forever 21. The sweater is fine, but it’s the shoes. They don’t fit! Well, they do fit me….BUT I DIDN’T BUY THEM FOR MYSELF! I wanted to get them for my mom because she loves little ankle booties. We (my friend and my brother) braved the early crowds in Soho, Midtown, AND Brooklyn going from store to store, yet there were none that screamed my mom. Then finally just by chance we stop in Forever 21 and I see a pair that I think she’ll love… but I get home and find that they’re a size too small for her and way too high. And since they’re non-returnable/exchangeable, I guess they’re mine by default. They’re cute and all, but it kinda sucks because due to the frantic shoppers in F21, the store was even more chaotic than normal, and I pretty much out ninja-ed this girl for the last size 8. I’m talking I barely scraped by with them. She had one shoe, and I the other. I inconspicuously held on to that left shoe until she gave up looking for the match to hers and as soon as she put it down, I swooped in…..only to get home and realized I’ve been stabbed in the back by karma. That bitch.
Also, somehow, I spent an unaccounted for 50 bucks on Bob knows what (food? drink? reading materials? who knows.) It’s really amazing how money gets away from me. I’m the worst.
SOOO tomorrow, I’m going to try again. This time I’m aiming for a simple gift, a one-size-fits-all video game (my mom loves PC games) and if this fails, I give up.
How’d your Black Friday experience go, or did you avoid the madness?
