Anybody else have to brave the stores today? Is it bad?

I've got to go to Wal-Mart...I don't want to, but I need to get some more cough medicine for my daughter. I'm dreading it, to be honest! One year I literally had a lady argue with me over getting a can of evaporated milk because it was the last can in "her brand". I don't want to knock an old lady out today...but I will if I have j/k.

So who has been out today? Was it bad?

  • I went at about 7:30 this morning.
    It was crowded, but not horrible.

  • I just got back and it was ok, except that the $5 gift card I HAD to use came from a movie and it was never activated! So, I got to spend 30 minutes waiting for them to figure out their own crappy system malfunction!! UGH!! I hate walmart!

  • Just got back and it was BAD. It was worse then I have seen in years past to be honest. I wish I had finished everything before today. I went to Walmart, the grocery store & a dept store.

  • Eeeeh good luck :( I saw the Wal-Mart parking lot last night, it was FULL. I can't imagine how bad it might be in some places today. Good luck, just remember to breathe and if anyone is rude to you, take it with a grain of salt.

  • Is there a grocery store you could go to instead? It might be less crowded, and even though you might pay a bit more for the cold medicine, it might be worth it to avoid the crowds.

  • In CO not too bad. A little more crowded then a typical day at this time, but not as unbearable as monday and tuesday shopping.

  • I won't have to go today, but I did run in there last night. It was about 8 pm and I had to exchange a package of goodnights that I bought for my son. He immediately noticed that they were the "girl" kind and he wouldn't wear them. There was a lady in front of me, whom I recognized from the local football games, and she was trying to return an XBOX and they wouldn't let her. Hmm, I wonder why! I got my money back and quickly exited the store and then ran into the grocery store for the good nights and some donuts. It wasn't too bad.

  • I went to the grocery store...that wasn't so bad, but you couldn't pay me to go to the malls or shopping centers today.
