Shopping was always the craziest when all of the items in stores were on sale! Everyone would suddenly have the urge to shop and use up all of their extra cash to clear off the shelves! The only people who were able to use their heads during this season were typically men—they just bought what they had always wanted. The women bought everything they could get their hands on!
That's what they were used to doing!
It was great business for the stores. They got to make money even while making room for the most up-and-coming styles that would themselves soon sell out! Sales allowed them to stay up to date! They also put signs everywhere advertising more sales. This was so that as people went up and down on the escalators they would see more things that they "thought" they needed to buy.
The upper level seminars on controlling your spending habits or managing money were always ignored during this season!
But that was okay! Sale season also made up for the ups and downs of the rest of the year! If sales staff opinions were up in the air about whether a certain item would sell, they would just put it to the side until sale season when they would be up to their ears in people wanting to buy any and everything!
The whole thing was sort of upside down, but everyone knew that and no one cared, especially the wives! If they spent too much money, then it was up to their husbands to work harder to pay it off! And the husbands in turn didn't help. They just urged their wives to do whatever they wanted to make them happy.
Just leave them alone so that they could watch football!
