here we go again!
Most of us trying so desperately
to find the Christmas spirit
or in some cases
just trying to find a parking spot.
Not sure about any of you,
but when I am about ready
to play bumper cars
in any parking lot
this time of year,
I can’t help but wonder
what all this talk is about
when it comes to
Out doing a service call for work
and while driving past one mall
in the middle of a week
and glancing to my left,
I actually found myself
mumbling these words.
“Does anyone have a day job in this city?”
I guess what I find interesting
is it really wasn’t all that long ago
(here where I live anyway)
were only open Thursday and Friday nights
until 9:00 in the evening,
Saturdays till 5:30
(some of you young ones may want to sit down for this one)
Would you believe that Sundays
the malls were not even open.
How on God’s green earth
(or should I change that to white)
did anyone have the time
to get their shopping done back than?
there was no
Just a quick note:
I don’t recall it ever being cancelled.
Somehow people managed to co-ordinate
their time and schedules
to get things on those lists
(and twice I may add)
Now that is what would have been called
“a Christmas Miracle”
I suppose it’s something
we really can’t ever go back to.
Sad to say
but it was
what it was,
and it is
what it is.
Just do me a favor though.
As someone who worked retail,
and thinking back than
that at Christmas time
how exhausted I was,
and that I had no life with all the hours
I had to put in,
(after you have safely found a parking spot of course)
take a second to consider
the person working those extra long hours,
especially on a Sunday.
That being said,
they weren’t as lucky as us old folks.
When they are done taking care of your needs,
and in a mad dash to get their shopping done
(which may explain the packed parking lot in the middle of the week)
they too deserve a Christmas miracle,
or at the very least…
a parking spot 😉
Make it a great day everybody!
