How has on-line shopping affected mall shopping ? What is the wave of the future ?
I have to write a three page paper on how on-line shopping has affected mall shopping ? and What is the wave of the future ? I really don’t know and I wanted to get some help. So if you have some answers please let me know and send your answers. THANKS !!!
I believe that on-line shopping has hurt mall shopping a lot. Many businesses in the mall now offer on-line shopping to try and overcome this drawback. I believe that there will be more and more on-line shopping as time goes by.
How does the financial crisis affect people’ on-line shopping?
What do you think about the affection of the financial crisis on people’ on-line shopping,especially the products with the brand names? Any influence on you?
The financial crisis has caused a sharp decrease in consumer spending, particularly on items that are non-essential. Name-brand items are often being substituted by no-name products. Some people may be using the internet to do more comparison pricing and may be shopping online a bit more. Overall, however, all shopping has decreased.
Hope this helps. Good luck.
Would you begin singing a Christmas Carol in order to lighten the mood in a long shopping line?
Can’t you just see the people around you having that “Got to get OUT of here” expressins on their faces, forgetting why they are there in the first place, becoming frusterated with the long lines at checkout….
Are you ballsy enough to try to cheer the line — ‘lines’ — back to the festivity of the Holiday by singing out loud a tune that is a reminder of what we are celebrating?
Why or why not?
As a matter of fact, I already do that. Most stores play Christmas songs on their overhead and I LOVE christmas and christmas songs so I sing to them anyway. I love to sing and I don’t really care where I’m at, I’ll sing regardless. I work in retail and we play Christmas songs and I sing them alll day long. The customers and employees don’t seem to mind, some even like when I do it and some join in. IT’S CHRISTMAS AND IT’S FUN! Lol I don’t really care if I look like a dork, I’m having fun and it’s not doing any harm. I fully recommend others try it, lighten up and do something fun
Advice on quality of purchase of electronic and computer peripherals through on line shopping?
I would like to know about the quality of electronic gadget and computer if it is purchased through on line shopping. Please advice.
Be sure to read full description of the product. Go to a national chain website and make a note of the price, model #, etc. Then google the item and see what turns up. I would pick companies here in the US, or your home country. MAKE DAMN SURE that what you want is what you are buying——ask the seller/company questions!!! Make sure it is not a refurbished/used product (unless that is what you want). It’s your money, be smart about it!!! I have bought all kinds of computer parts online and , actually, have never been ripped-off—-because I do my homework and I’m careful.

Your Questions About Food Shopping On Line
Which supermarket is best at on-line food shopping?
I’ve been using Sainsbury’s for the past two years and the standard is going so badly down hill that I need to swap ASAP. Food arriving 15 hours late, loads of excuses, etc etc. Total rubbish! Which supermarket should I switch to?
they have 24 hour delivery and they are very fast!
They also have everything u wil eva need
i been using it a long time now
What is your experience of on line food shopping?
I have just done one for Sainsbury’s after having a most awful experience with Tesco a few years ago which put me off. (laboured to get my order, items not there sort of thing) .I was wondering if it had improved
Why waste petrol and time to join a herd of cattle being herded, processed and manipulated, whilst suffering the gullibility of British consumers.
Supermarkets and Shopping Centres are just temples of consumer extortion, give me the freedom of the internet every time!
How many Irish people have used Tesco on-line food shopping & were you happy with it ?
Had no choice but to order on line a my son has chickenpox so we are stuck in as don’t want to spread to others…have heard great reviews from pals as said they were very happy with it….be interested to hear from those that have used it ….
I’ve used it in the UK it was fine. One time the driver brought the wrong item and I rang the helpline and they refunded me immediately. Its great for emergencies or if you are disabled etc and can’t get out. Its also good if you are on a budget and need to plan your meals, no impulse buying.
We live too far from the nearest Tesco (20 miles) so they won’t deliver to us here and anyway I love mooching for bargains and “sell by date” stuff which you can’t do when you order online.
Do you think on line food shopping saves or costs you more?
on line shopping for food do you get what you order?
ive never ordered food shopping on line before ,,and im thinking to do it online with tesco or asda will they deliver all i order or do they get it wrong and how long does it take to deliver can i have your experiences thanks
I used Tesco a lot whilst heavily pregnant.
What happens, is if they don’t have the exact thing you ordered, the make a ‘substitution’ with something they feel will be suitable. If when the delivery guy gets there (Tesco delivery men are absolute angels – highly recommend.) he will go through them and you can choose not to take them – and they will be removed from your bill.
This does create irritation though. For instance – I ordered extra low fat cream cheese – as it is a staple of my diet and they substituted with full fat cream cheese, which most definately is NOT on the diet! Also, for daughters christening, ordered 20 bottles of pink champagne and ended up getting normal coloured – not a disaster, but if I had known (they delivered on the day) I would have gone elsewhere and bought the pink.
Try it though – it will cut you shopping bills as you don’t wander down aisles of temptation! Also – Tesco have this great ‘express shopper’ on the left hand side. You just write your list and go from there!
does anyone order their food shopping on-line? and which supermarkets have you found offer the best service?
Yes, tesco. Great and easy but only after the first time. They “star” stuff for you so you can easily do it again next time.
Survey: How many people have done their weekly food shopping on-line ?
Jasus I would never go out again,,,,
no i love the jaunt around Morrisons..lol
Hardys wine from £9.99 to £3.99 whoo hoo

What website do the Spanish use to do their online clothes shopping?
I’m a 29 year old woman and would like to order clothes from an online Spanish retailer, in the UK I used to order from stores like River Island etc so would really like something similar. I know I could just drive to the shops but don’t particularly enjoy shopping in the stores and would really like to do it from the computer.
You’d have to google Spanish based stores.

Your Questions About Next Shopping On Line
do you find it rude when your shopping and the person next in line rushes?
up on you.
my example I was shopping today i paid with cash money so I had to put my cash i also count it so if there is an issue i still have the attention of the teller. then i put it in my purse or back pocket. today back pocket was that. Before I could even fold my money to put it away this lady was hiding my bag of stuff i bought with her body.
Once i got my money away i grabed my bag i said excuse me may i get my things. and she said sorry.. so I know it wasn’t intentional but this is just one example
i’m in ahurry because of lunch … but i find some people who do this are rude. Lilke can I have personal space.. if i wasn’t paying attention and yawned I would of knocked the lady out.
Where do you draw the line and when do you say something to another human for their rushes.?
i know we are in the fast go go go faster age. but still.
okay i normally do not thumbs down people but i guess today is an exception!
Please guys answer the questions I ask not the ones you develop in your head. please and thank you!
Im a cashier at a local mall around where I live. Unfortunately its really common for people to just assume that they have to rush the person in front of them. They should be aware that shopping is not a race. Generally if a customer does this I tell them to wait one moment (politely) and finish up with the other customer. Your cashier probably should have done that but sadly this doesn’t deter all customers. I would draw the line at someone just pushing their way in front of me and invading my space rather than just rushing me from behind. I say definitely mention when someone is being rude to you but don’t make a scene out of it because that helps no one.
How do you keep a story interesting without rushing ahead to the next line or conversation?
“Wooo! Can we go on again?” Summer asked us all as we were clinking back to the start of the ride.
“YESS!” we all screeched pulling the safety bars back over us.
About six hours, lunch and lots more rides later we were tiring and Elisha’s mum who was picking us up rang us to say that she was done shopping and she’d be coming to pick us up in half an hour.
We rode our last ride at Alton Towers and then mooched back up to the car park were Elisha’s mum was waiting.
“Hi girls! Did you all have fun?” Elisha’s mum, Claire, asked, “Mind the bags, I‘ve been shopping all day.”
Elisha shoved all the bags in the boot and said “Get in.”
I feel like when I write I rush my story. The paragraph or sentence can be decent but then the next line will seem rushed like I’ve got bored of that bit so I’ll move on. How can I prevent this?
As you’re writing your first draft, you don’t have to worry too much about the pace of the story… That’s more an issue that comes with editing, than with initial writing.
Let yourself rush ahead if it feels like you’re bored… Maybe the story is ready to keep moving. You can always go back and add more if you need to. When you’re done with the entire story, and you have a better idea of the story that you’re telling, you’ll be able to reread what you’ve written and say “I’m rushing this… I want there to be more tension in this scene” and you can insert more dialogue, description or conflict as you need to.
It’s best to not focus TOO much on pacing during this first draft. Focus on getting the story out, and on your second draft, focus on getting the story better formed.
How much makeup do you wear for everyday things like grocery shopping, errands etc. or do you not wear any?
Sometimes I feel like I wear too much makeup to go out for everday things like shopping and other errands etc. Here’s what I wear:
I do a full face application of Almay Smart Shade makeup, then I powder any shiny parts with a translucent face powder (usually Cover Girl), next I use some eyebrow powder on my eyebrows to fill in any bald looking spots. Then I apply only 1 shade of eyeshadow to my eyelids only (usually a med. brown eyeshadow). Next, I line my eyes with black liquid eyeliner, top of eye only along the edge of the eyelids and I try to make the line as thin as I can. (I never ever skip the eyeliner step, I feel naked without it). Next I do a coat of mascara and sometimes I curl my eyelashes and sometimes I don’t (depending on how much time I have). Then my favorite lipstick or lipgloss and finally, depending on if I have time or not I’ll use a little bit blush, but I usually skip the blush. Is that too much make-up to wear for going out to do errands?
I do my whole face…foundation, powder, eyeshadow, liner, mascara, lipstick or lipgloss…even if i`m just at home…i just luv playing around with makeup, it`s fun & i like to see how creative i can get!!! The only time i ever go outside without my makeup on, is when i`m going to the tanning bed…
Why do I need to take my telephone plug out from socket when I use my Credit card machine on the same tel line?

This problem does not occur in my next door shop. please help…
Your telephone jack is wired incorrectly. Try using a phone in the jack that you have the credit card machine plugged into.

The Blues- Do’s & Dont’s
Another email I got. Anyone else see this? (Bet this has already been posted here 12 dozen times, huh?)
If you are new to Blues music, or like it but never really understood
the why and wherefores, here are some very fundamental rules:
1. Most Blues begin with: “Woke up this morning…”
2. “I got a good woman” is a bad way to begin the Blues, unless
you stick something nasty in the next line like, “I got a good
woman, with the meanest face in town.”
3. The Blues is simple. After you get the first line right, repeat it.
Then find something that rhymes – sort of: “Got a good woman
with the meanest face in town. Yes, I got a good woman with
the meanest face in town. Got teeth like Margaret Thatcher
and she weigh 500 pound.”
4. The Blues is not about choice. You stuck in a ditch, you stuck
in a ditch…ain’t no way out.
5. Blues cars: Chevys, Fords, Cadillacs and broken-down trucks.
Blues don’t travel in Volvos, BMWs, or Sport Utility Vehicles.
Most Blues transportation is a Greyhound bus or a southbound
train. Jet aircraft and state-sponsored motor pools ain’t even in
the running. Walkin’ plays a major part in the Blues lifestyle.
So does fixin’ to die.
6. Teenagers can’t sing the Blues. They ain’t fixin’ to die yet.
Adults sing the Blues. In Blues, “adulthood” means being old
enough to get the electric chair if you shoot a man in Memphis.
7. Blues can take place in New York City but not in Hawaii or
anywhere in Canada. Hard times in Minneapolis or Seattle is
probably just clinical depression. Chicago, St. Louis, Kansas
City, Memphis, and Nawlins are still the best places to have
the Blues. You cannot have the Blues in any place that don’t
8. A man with male pattern baldness ain’t the Blues. A woman
with male pattern baldness is. Breaking your leg ’cause you
were skiing is not the Blues. Breaking your leg ’cause a alligator
be chomping on it is.
9. You can’t have no Blues in an office or a shopping mall. The
lighting is wrong. Go outside to the parking lot or sit by the
10. Good places for the Blues
c. empty bed
d. bottom of a whiskey glass
11. Bad places for the Blues
b. gallery openings
c. Ivy League institutions
d. golf courses
12. No one will believe it’s the Blues if you wear a suit, ‘less you
happen to be an old person, and you slept in it.
13. Do you have the right to sing the Blues?
a. you’re older than dirt
b. you’re blind
c. you shot a man in Memphis
d. you can’t be satisfied
a. you have all your teeth
b. you were once blind but now can see
c. the man in Memphis lived
d. you have a 401K or trust fund
14. Blues is not a matter of color. It’s a matter of bad luck. Tiger
Woods cannot sing the Blues. Sonny Liston could have.
Ugly white people also got a leg up on the Blues.
15. If you ask for water and your darlin’ gives you gasoline, it’s
the Blues.Other acceptable Blues beverages are:
a. cheap wine
b. whiskey or bourbon
c. muddy water
d. black coffee
The following are NOT Blues beverages:
d. Slim Fast
16. If death occurs in a cheap motel or a shotgun shack, it’s a
Blues death. Stabbed in the back by a jealous lover is
another Blues way to die. So are the electric chair,
substance abuse and dying lonely on a broken-down cot.
You can’t have a Blues death if you die during a tennis
match or while getting liposuction.
17. Some Blues names for women:
b. Big Mama
d. Fat River Dumpling
18. Some Blues names for men:
c. Little Willie
d. Big Willie
19. Persons with names like Michelle, Amber, Jennifer, Debbie,
and Heather can’t sing the Blues no matter how many
men they shoot in Memphis.
20. Blues Name Starter Kit
a. name of physical infirmity (Blind, Cripple, Lame, etc.)
b. first name (see above) plus name of fruit (Lemon, Lime,
c. last name of President (Jefferson, Johnson, Fillmore, etc.)
For example: Blind Lime Jefferson, Pegleg Lemon
Johnson or Cripple Kiwi Fillmore, etc. (Well, maybe not “Kiwi.”)
21. I don’t care how tragic your life is: if you own a computer, you
cannot sing the blues, period.
Fonzie, I love the blues. And this had to be one of the funniest things I’ve ever read.
