YUH GAWH BE KIDDIN’: Shopping ain’t for everyone

Social Share

I BELIEVE STRONGLY that the world is made up of different types of people so that life wouldn’t be boring. So yuh have yuh introverts and extroverts, artists and blue collars, politicians and everybody else.

However, what I wish to share with you today are the two types of people when it comes to shopping. Now yuh see this thing called shopping? It ain’t fuh everybody. Some people love shopping, de budget fuh shopping would be $150 and dem would end up spending $500.

Me now, when I shop I does get straight to de point. I know I want a jeans or a shirt so I going to the three places that I always go to and if they don’t have then I am going home.

But I have a friend that would want a shirt and she gine start from the top of Roebuck Street and stop in every store all the way down to the bottom of Swan Street so she could take notes.

That time she already see the shirt that she wants but decided to go in all the stores to see if someone had it cheaper or if there is one she likes better. Then she gine walk all the way back to where she saw the shirt but not before she stop in all the stores once more and end up with a shirt, shoes, make-up, new pots and pans and a blow dryer.

Feet hurting

I made the mistake and decided that I would go with her, yuh know, spend a little time in town. Muh ting, we got into town at 10 a.m. and left around 4 p.m. like it was a job. That time all my feet hurting and I sitting down every time my eyes spot a stool or a bench in the stores. I had to look at her differently because I swear she was a new generation of robots unleashed amongst us humans.

Never again will that happen and if yuh doubt me ask me.

Mind you that is just regular shopping when you just looking for clothes. But make the mistake and let it be Christmas shopping when yuh got to look fuh things like curtains, vases, mats, decorations, lights and cleaning products (cause yuh know a full house clean is just around the corner), yuh would be in town fuh forty days and forty nights and by the time you done you ain’t got no energy left to even think about the fact that you ain’t even buy groceries yet.

So anytime you go shopping with someone find out which type of shopper they are.
