    Sure, but it's cool that you were able to help someone else out and thought to do so.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    I just went and got some decorations, beer, and Mountain Dew. No Christmas shopping for now.

    Not going anywhere near the city. I tried to a few years ago and it was a complete zoo. Much happier spending the day with family and relaxing then saving a few bucks in that hellish environment.

    I buy nothing at big box stores between Thanksgiving and January 2 unless something happens that forces me into a Lowe's against my will.

    Yep. If people want to know what a complete crisis would look like they need only go to Black Friday sales, you'll see the worst in people.
