I’ll share my own most memorable shopping tale to get everyone started…
I was 11-years-old and was about to embark on my first ever, Black Friday shopping excursion with my mother and a couple of aunts. We were on the hunt for the coveted Cabbage Patch Doll that seemed to clear out of the stores just as quickly as the employees could stock the shelves.
We were outside a Hills Department Store at 6:00 AM waiting for the doors to open – I had NO idea what was about to happen on the danger I’d placed myself in by getting to the front of the lines.
When the doors were unlocked it was as if someone had released a herd of hungry bulls – everyone racing to the back of the store – to the toy department.
Once there, I found the perfect doll. She had blonde hair and blue eyes just like me! I grabbed her up, turned in excitement and started to move toward my mother.
Suddenly I saw stars and my doll was ripped from my hands. A woman who looked to be in her 60′s had snatched the doll from my hands and bolted out of the crowd. I am NOT exagerating! I had the black eye to prove it!
I never saw her or my doll again!
I wound up getting a Cabbage Patch that year, but not because of the shopping trip we took that Black Friday – My grandpa said it was because he found the woman with my doll and gave her her black eye back.
Now that I’m older, I know that was just a story, but still, Grandpa was my hero for getting me the perfect gift that year.
Now it’s your turn! do tell…
