SO IT’S CHRISTMAS eve and you’ve clocked off work for a few days rest, holidays and festivities. Ahhh.
But wait. You’ve virtually no Christmas shopping done yet.
Here are the 13 emotions you’re likely to go through. Being able to identify and anticipate them will help you on your mission, and remember, you’re not alone.
There you are, in denial. BE. GRAND.
Sure you’ll just pop to the shops and get something nice for the few you’ll see tomorrow. You might even make a list and everything.
Oh wait, that’s like, a lot of people.
4. More denial
Still, I’ll be fast and at home on the sofa with a mince pie and hot toddy in no time.
The shopping centre isn’t as empty as you’d imagined. You were certain that nobody would be this late except you, but you were wrong.
Time is running out, rapidly.
Then comes the realisation, the holy grail of last minute Christmas shopping– vouchers.
There’s a queue for the queue for the information desk, all4ones are out the window.
9. Last resorts
Well that shop doesn’t look so full.
Oh, of course it’s Carraig Donn, you won’t get the kids anything in there.
That’ll do. So will that. Shops are closing and you’re grabbing anything in sight. You’re even willing to fight for it
A €150 crop-top? That’ll definitely do for granny.
That top will definitely be 10c in the sales like, two days later.
The comes the repulsion, the realisation that you bought a load of crap for your loved ones.
Wait, you HAVE a load of crap for your loved ones.
Happy Christmas, one and all!
