Shopping Under the Influence

Recommended Posts

Article in the Washington Post 



“Having a drink while you shop is the adult version eating samples at the grocery store,” the 43-year-old writer said. “You are walking around, enjoying something yummy.”


That’s not to say there isn’t an occasional downside. “A glass or two of wine does lead me to the fancy food aisle,” Kendall said. “I sometimes come home with more than my share of fig preserves and prosciutto."

Gene Weingarten, writing in the Washington Post about online news stories and the accompanying readers' comments: "I basically like 'comments,' though they can seem a little jarring: spit-flecked rants that are appended to a product that at least tries for a measure of objectivity and dignity. It's as though when you order a sirloin steak, it comes with a side of maggots."

When I can afford $2700 shoes I won’t object too much to dropping $17 on a cocktail but I really think it should be thrown in for free.😂 Frankly, I think the whole thing is rather a bad idea for both the seller and the buyer. In a litigious  society $2700 shoes and $17 cocktails strike me as a bit of a time bomb.
