    Why Can't Someone Else Do It

    I just can not stand doing it especially when it's for food I can never remember what I want and even if I write a list I always forget something. Then its the way they move things around so you have to search for the things you want just so annoying at times. And then of course...

    I was drunk and I went to Walmart

    and the intercom came on saying "we have a juice spill on aisle three". And I'm like "GOD HAS SPOKEN! PREPARE FOR THE SECOND FLOOD"... I was then escorted out of the Walmart by some nice gentlemen.

    I Wish I Did

    its not that I dont like shopping itself its just that I always get to completely anxious that I cant stand it. I freak out and sometimes even have panic attacks. It is just plain horrible for me.

    I'll tolerate any type of shopping

    if I'm with my best friend, my mom, or cousin because I have fun hanging out with them but other than that I despise shopping. If I see something I like I'll get it. I use to like shopping a lot but one day that all changed. I have my reasons why I hate shopping.

    I have to buy shorts tomorrow

    since the weather is warming up, but I'm not comfortable enough to show my legs to everyone. It's so hard for girls my size to find clothes and I hate it.

    Oh my gosh... Had to go shopping

    for a dress! Ew. Took like what, 6 hours to do... 😣 I blame my Mom! She kept stopping to look at stuff almost EVERY THREE STEPS!! The trip to the mall was only supposed to be; get a dress, then go home. But it turned into my mother getting 10 things for herself ahahaha...

    Grocery shopping is really hard.

    .. I have no idea what to buy. I'm use to going in the supermarket with my mom and putting everything I wanted in the cart. Now I don't know what to buy. So far all I have is orange juice, almonds, blackberries and gum.

    Only Two Times a Year and That Is It!

    I will only go shopping twice a year.  That's it! No more!  I watch for the seasons closes outs and pay maybe 50% or less.  I'm not too picky.  I wear men's clothing.  They are so more comfortable and better quality.  Pants are pants.  Shorts...

    In a Way

    I like to shop for other people, but I'm not so into shopping for myself.  It's probably because I'm so picky.  I'm one of those people no one wants to shop with, because inevitably there will come an outburst along the lines of: "Tate, just pick something!"...

    Grocery shopping isn't too bad because I know what I need and I can be in and out in like 5 minutes. But clothes shopping, especially with women, literally makes me crazy. My ex used to drag me clothes shopping every weekend. I'd just be bored out of my mind, wondering why my...

    If I have to try something on I have to grab like five of the same things because sizes are different for everything so I don't know what size I am. I hate clothes now. All crop tops, tank tops, short shorts, and basically anything to show the most skin possible. And I'm the...

    in three different towns looking for sage. Every other type of herb in the known universe, but no sage. It's also the busiest shopping day of the week. I kept my cool though! Mostly.

    on I feel ugly. My self confidence has seriously lowered as well as with my self esteem . I rather avoid feeling like a cow. and what makes it worse is seeing a skinny girl and being like that used to me. anybody have this issue ?

    I hate shopping for clothes in particular.

    It's just a necessity and I do like to dress rather fashionable. However it always takes me forever to find something that fits well and looks good. And I always get tired of the process so quickly that, more often than not, I return home empty handed.
