It’s the most wonderful time of the year—until we experience the dreaded Christmas rush. Sometimes, the heavy traffic and the extra crowded malls tend to become intense during peak season and we all know how that feels.
The Christmas rush reminds us just how hard Santa Claus’ job would be and how much we love the people in our lives for all the trouble that we go through. Here are the stages you go through during the Christmas rush.
Going through the list of names you’re shopping gifts for
Suppressing your road rage when traffic is at a standstill
Looking for a parking spot forever
Trying to stay alive through hordes of people
Getting bumped at as you make your way through the jam-packed mall
Fighting for that one last item left on the rack
Carrying 10 shopping bags in each arm
Queuing for a line (that’s probably as long as EDSA) at the cashier
Panicking because you realized you forgot one person on your list
Relieved to be home at last because you survived the Christmas rush
