I almost decided to just stay inside today and lazed around while reading but I had to go to buy a couple of gifts. One for my christmas buddy or secret santa as they call it in my current company. You know, where you select a person at random by picking a name out of a box filled with all employee names and you have to buy that person a gift for Christmas and leading up to that point you have to leave little notes for that person. And I also had to buy two small gifts for the trainees who performed the best and who will graduate and be given their certificates on Monday. When I checked in the office on Saturday afternoon, we had run out of the gifts that we had bought in advance.
So I headed out in the afternoon towards Shenoys and tried to find a gift shop. The H.P petrol bunk just after Music World has an Archies franchise within their facility and it looked like a good place to find some gifts. So in I went but their selection in my budget range was very weak. There were some good things on their shelfs but most were very pricey. I found a gift for my christmas buddy; an African thingy and finally had to settle for some globes in a pyramid as the gifts for the trainees.
But the service over there sucked! They have such morons running the place – the guy at the counter looked like he hadn’t bathed and had his shirt mostly unbuttoned. Another goof was so inept at wrapping the gifts that after 20 minutes I went to enquire “Can I get them this century?” It still took those numbnuts an additional 15 minutes. And they messed the wrapping so badly. They were also responding rudely to a group of teenagers who hadn’t done or said anything wrong. Assholes!!
