Retail madness has taken over our lives.
My parking garage increased its daily rate to $12/day in order to "make room for holiday shoppers." Contained in the notice was also a statement that if we spend $25 at any select retail establishment and validate the parking, the rate will be back down to $9/day. It will be back to normal after the holidays.
Of course, there was absolutely no thought for those of us who actually WORK for a living and don't go SHOPPING! in the middle of the day.
Hiding under a rock until January 2 sounds better every day . . . .
(Hope you don't mind me borrowing the icon jenbooks. It pretty much sums up my attitude right now!)
