Black Friday shopping is one giant dignity-shattering experience.
If you’re doing it, this living nightmare will be packed with horrifying annoyances. One person will try to cut you in line. Another person will take their sweet time ringing you up. You will feel the terrifying pressure of claustrophobic shopping panic. Fortunately, several holiday movies and T.V. shows have noted the psychological and physical pain you are suffering.
Here, we’ve put together ten GIFs that cover the whole range of holiday gift-buying torture.
1. Miraculously and gloriously rolling up to the store hungover.
2. Perfectionist sales associates who make not banging your head against the counter a heroic act of restraint.
3. Some jerk saying something stupid.
4. When your bags explode because of course they do.
5. Line cutters who clock you right away and then breeze passed you like they didn’t see you.
6. Being extremely hot in the store because you dressed for freezing weather.
7. Other people and their insistence on buying stuff when it’s you who needs to get shopping done.
8. When people are way too thrilled to be there.
9. When people are way too nosy about your private inside joke gifts.
10. No one gift wraps anything for you unless you’re in a high-end store or you’re a fashion blogger.
What’s the worst thing that happened to you while you were holiday shopping?
