Okay, I know I don’t believe it either but I’m posting such a girly post.
I am a girl. (Well, last time I checked) And I occasionally like shopping. Emphasis on OCCASIONALLY. I don’t go to every mall practically making my wallet cry of frustration and utter depression because I am depleting its resources…nah nah…I don’t do that, most of the times.Get this, there are 2 kinds of shoppers. I call them Shopper 1 and Shopper 2. Cool name self, *sarcastic applause*. The difference between the two lies not between WHAT they buy but HOW they buy stuff. For example, Shopper #1: This type of person shops for the sake of shopping. They may have one single item set in their mind to buy, like a pair of shoes, a shirt/blouse, make-up, gadgets..you get the point. But at the end of the day, they DON’T JUST buy what they need, they buy EVERYTHING (“‘Cause its on sale omigod”) The mentality of these people revolve around hopelessly craving for sales and cute items that doesn’t cost much but at the end of the day, if you sum up all the items they “bought on sale”, they’d sum up pretty expensive. Imagine, a couple of cheap 50% off shirts would suddenly cause too much if you brought like 10. And the funny yet infuriating thing about them is their inability to stop shopping AFTER they found what they needed. They have to tour the whole mall just for the sake of “window shopping”. Yeah, good luck with that feet. Shopper #2 is pretty straight forward. They shop because they need to. The different thing about this person is that they are able to formulate in their minds a concept on what they need to buy, what store to buy to, back-up stores in case the original store runs out of stock, buy then leave. Pretty straight forward. They either plan for their items before or during shopping and they spend only a few hours at the mall to look for their items. Screw window shopping, I;m going to spend money on what I need. As soon as they enter the holy gates of the mall, they proceed to the store, check the price, pay and leave. Yes, they roam the malls a few times but never the intention of buying anything else despite a 70% off sale, why? They don’t need it. I am honestly a Shopper 2. I don’t like spending too much time at the mall because first and foremost, my feet hurt from all the walking and second, being the socially awkward and traumatized person that I am, I hate crowds. They suck all the energy in me with the “excuse me’s, oh- i’m sorry, could you move” GOD people! Just move out of the way. I need a Moses feels right here, split up in half!
