Mental Note: Avoid all stores until Monday.
The last time I attempted to go shopping during such a weekend, it was worse than Christmas Eve. Stores were in such a sorry state of disarray. Stuff was thrown everywhere. The store floors looked like they had not been cleaned in days. The employees appeared as though they were survivors of a POW camp. Later, I saw pictures of the previous day’s crowds.
It made me feel really good that I do not work in retail.
