17. Online shopping

Yesterday in the mail I got a Christmas present I ordered for someone this year. And that, my friends, is why I like online shopping.

I have never taken advantage of Cyber Monday – and I’ve only tried Black Friday once, no thank you – but can see why people do it. In fact, I plan on buying several of my presents that way next year. With just a couple clicks on Amazon.com, or whichever Web site has the gift I need, my Christmas shopping is done – or close to it. I don’t have to fight a crowd or navigate Louisville’s roads during this time of year, both of which I hate.

Sometimes you can get stuff gift-wrapped before they send it, but due to an unfortunate incident when wedding presents were ordered and I payed for gift-wrapping services once from Target.com, I’m hesitant to ever pay for that online ever again.

And, with sites like Amazon.com, you can find exactly what you want. Meanwhile, if you go to a store, you’re stuck looking forever, fighting past people and probably asking someone that works there where the item is, when most of the time they have no idea.

So, yeah. I like my shopping like I like my trips to the dentist – quick and painless. The best way to do that is to go online. I love it.

Thank God for the Internet.
