But, a real store, one made with bricks and concrete, with merchandise and hardworking people inside is not. You actually have to leave, come in, and walk around (hell, you don’t even have to do that thanks to motorized carts) to find the things you’d like to purchase.
If you haven’t figured it out, today’s Retail Rant is a salute to the Stay-At-Home Shopper. The person who thinks everything they could ever want to buy should be obtained from the comfort of their La-Z-Boy or sofa. Those people who call actual stores and ask a thousand questions, most beginning with, “Do you have…?”, “How much is…?”, and “If I have corner about yay big, do you think (insert item here) would fit?”
Who do you think you are, Stay-At-Home Shopper? Or, better yet, who do you think I am? Last time I checked you weren’t paying me to be your personal assistant. And, contrary to popular belief, the world outside is not that bad. You should venture out. Introduce your pale skin to some good old sunshine. Try the kind of social networking that doesn’t involved the Internet. Now, if you don’t mind, I’m getting off the phone to help someone who actually took the time to do this right. Whatever you were wanting, I hope they get the last one.
