Toys R Us is closed!
Imagine arriving at Toys R Us on Christmas Eve at 9:10PM, with not a single present purchased, only to find the doors locked!
That is a true desperate moment. What would you do?
December 2014 was the year that Mom caught pneumonia.....and Dad did the shopping!
Luckily I had Hanukkah covered in November, but I was planning on Christmas shopping in mid December. While sick in bed for over 2 weeks, Doug volunteered to take care of Christmas. His exact words, "It will be fun, don't worry about a thing. I love shopping on Christmas Eve."
So when the kids went to bed, Doug set out for his definition of "fun". When he arrived at Toys R Us, he quickly found the store closed at 9:00PM.
He had two options.
1. Answer some VERY tough questions on Christmas morning.
2. Sneak in the exit door!
While one of the last customers was checking out, he snuck in the exit door and made a mad dash as if he were on a game show shopping spree. I only wish he had his Go Pro hooked up to the shopping cart. This post could be exponentially more entertaining.
He arrived at the checkout to find not a "creature was stirring" not even a cashier. After begging someone to take pity on him, he was able to purchase his cart full of Legos. He claims it's the only aisle he could make it to.
Hey beggars can't be choosers. I'm just happy he snuck in the exit door!
Merry Christmas to all the Santa's that are making it happen!
