.....When you get up at 5:15 am to go shopping on the day after Thanksgiving and realize you aren't prepared (wearing flip flops and a jacket in 30 degree weather), you are so far back in line, you stress about whether you are going to get what you even braved the crowds for, after yelling MOVE as loud as you can or, OUT OF MY WAY, to clear a path so that no one touches you, find said merchandise and then realize you have to stand in a crowded line to pay for it all. You start to get antsy and talk a mile a minute to hubby who is not following along well, talking about nothing really anyway, wondering if you've forgotten anything or could have gotten a better bargain elsewhere.
Obviously, this was the first time I've EVER done this and will not be so crazy as to attempt it again. However, we saved at least $125 all together. Still don't know if it was worth the panic.
