I would love to be able to shop online. There's a problem though. My wife works from home. She's a snooper. If I buy her Christmas presents online, she's home when the UPS guy delivers them. Then she knows something's up.
"But!" you ask... "Can't you have them delivered somewhere else?". To work? No. But my dad lives just down the street from me. "Surely that's an ideal arrangement then!" Well.... no. I love my father dearly. But if I go over there just
to pick up a package that's been delivered, it starts. What starts, you ask? The come in, have a drink, want something to eat?
Before I know it, it's taken longer to pick up the package than it would have taken to go fight through a mall and buy it myself.
And that, is why I still shop at the store. In fact I ran out at lunch time and got something for Sheila.
