I know I've written before about people's manners...BUT!!!!!!!
This is the time of the year when EVERYONE is suppossed to be thinking of their fellow man. No matter how tight for time, you are is so hard to hold the door for someone struggling with arms full of bags/packages?
When driving is it necessary to drive in a parking lot as you would if you were "off-roading"? Drop you're partner off at the door and go and find a parking space. Just think of how much they will apprecaite it when you go and get the car and drive to pick them and the purchases up? The car will be warm and toasty. Can you see the smile? The stores will open again tomorrow, so do not drive as though they will close tonight forever! or better yet, find a 24 hr store and see what they have to offer there!
A drug store in my ciry sells all kinds of gift cards!!!
But as we all know that on "The man's shopping day"(Dec 24th) all rules go out the window. It is the one day when a guy will grab a nightie and walk up to another guy holding said nightie and a 20 year old photo of his wife and ask..."Do you think she'll fit in this"? The answer will invariably be "sure.....wanna grab a beer?"
Basically folks, just relax. It's gonna be fine. If the store is sold out, try another, go online or start phoning all the stores within a 250 mile radius. If you cannot find it...a gift card or IOU is a start....might want to add a small amount of alcohol as consolation....
Just remember that we must look out for our fellow man. Hold doors, smile and nod a happy holiday to the poor soul who has to do it in front of a store for 12 hours.
You may not get better presents this year for trying to be a better person, but, you might save a life and it could be your own. Don't drink and drive, that's why we have taxi's!

Hint: great last-minute "Oops, I forgot" present (not just for Christmas) that doesn't look last-minute - and she'll love it, anyway!|
Gift Certificate for a Spa Day/Facial/Massage from a local (there's zillions of them) Parlor.
When I get them for my wife, I always request a male Massuse... If anyone's going to be running their hands all over her naked body, It'd BETTER be a man! lol
Pleasing women in unbelievable ways for 45 years...
