Oniomania

The Benetton sale is on.....n dey have this thing called "happy hours" during wich u r supposd to get flat 50% off. Happy?? Dey actually call dem dat? Happy ws like the last word i would use to describe it.....imagine walking in 40 degree heat at 10 in the mornin on a sunday (yes...!) in order to reach a 10 by 10 store crammed with some 150 sweaty ppl all grappling for a particular shirt/top/bottom which isn't there in any humanly useful size anyway and wich i bet u wudn't have the guts to try out, and then standing in a long winding 100-something queue so that u can pay (btw, u gotta be damn lucky if u manage to reach the counter before the clock strikes 12 when the "happy" hours end! Man...i bet even cinderella wouldn't dread it as much as u would! ). Whew!
While I was there, i noticed that there are, in general, 2 types of ppl in this world.....
The first kind are those, who, when they like a particular garment, simply HAVE to buy it or all hell breaks loose. No matter what the price. Not even caring for the number of days they might have to skip lunch in order to pay for it.
And then there are those who, if and when they find something cheap, simply HAVE to buy it or all hell breaks loose. No matter how it looks on them. Or how little they like it....
All in all, someone has rightly said...shopping is truly an art....
