So, you’ve decided to take the plunge and do all your Christmas shopping online this year? I’ve been shopping online since way before the COVID made its debut, so I feel I am amply qualified to deliver a few pros and cons to you before you embark on this new and nerve-wracking journey.
1) First of all, let’s talk about your alcohol consumption.
Pros: You can drink wine and you won’t get carded, stared at, asked to leave, or arrested for public intoxication and/or indecency.
Cons: Your purchasing decisions may be altered somewhat. (See picture above).
Life is a balance, am I right?
2) Let’s talk about People.
Pros: When you shop online, you don’t have to worry about running into your judgy Mother-in-Law, your ex-lover, a friend to whom you still owe money, or your smelly neighbor.
Cons: In my opinion, there are no cons here. Avoiding people is an art. Be proud.
Sometimes life gives you lemons. Throw them at your neighbor. Aim with a purpose.
3) Let’s talk about spending money.
Pros: If no one sees you shopping online at 2 AM, are you really spending too much money on a new iPhone, ear pods, a lightning charger, 4 pairs of shoes, a case of fresh pineapples from Hawaii, and a book on how to get rich data-mining? I think not.
Cons: Sure, I understand your purchasing a must-have item for a $1000, but you should shut that shit down when you have to pay a $7.99 Shipping Charge! Freaking highway robbery! Just sayin…
Online shopping is better than traditional shopping because it gives you
a reason to live for the next 7-10 business days.
I think I need more pens and another coffee mug.
