I hate shopping in crowded stores. I will keep myself up late late at night just for the chance at hitting a sale or a hunt without having to be there with 30 other people crowded into one store. There are very - and I do mean VERY - few stores that I will go to on the first day of a sale and I will almost never do a gift hunt the first day, especially if it's one of those that you have to go to one place to get the LM to the next place. Not that those aren't really fun, but if 50 people all start at once, you pretty much have to not even look at where you are, just grab the next LM and run and try to outrun them so you don't have 50 people all teleporting in on your head all day.
But, I'm like this in my RL too. I don't like crowded stores. I keep making the joke that I'd like to be so famous that stores will shut their doors just so I can shop alone for half an hour, but it's not THAT far off the mark. LOL I did hit up the M&R Cupcakes 50% off sale last night after it was announced, but only because some of the group were going out there too. [If I have to go to a crowded store, I prefer to go with friends.] I picked up just 4 dresses, but I might need to go back. LOL The dresses I got are gorgeous, though. Especially this classy little black number with a red belt and different skirt options. I've had my eye on it for a week or so, but just needed the extra push to get it.
Is anyone else like me? Do you check the map before going anywhere to see if it's crowded? Do you scout out the times when the stores are least likely to be packed? I don't want to think I'm anti-social. Just anti-lag.
