Shopping for Raincoats is Sinful

Sunday, October 01, 2006

So says the Nova Scotia Government. Well, not raincoats specifically, but thanks to their policies, one can not shop for a raincoat or most other things that one might need on a Sunday. We are getting the remnants of a hurricane tomorrow and my sons' raincoat is nowhere to be found. Should I drive to the neighbouring province of New Brunswick (a 4 hour drive away), which allows Sunday shopping and pick one up? Perhaps I'll do that and send my gas bill to the Premier of this fine province, eh? In the meantime, I feel like I am living in the woman above's era; where can I get me one of those?....

    Oh when they mess with my shopping I would get mad...

    In what way does the government see that this will help...

    So sorry to hear about the weather. Please take care.

    shopping can never be sinful. you buy something you need and you help a business survive. this is what the Lord wants us to do.

    (who is the nice woman in the raincoat?)

    A garbage bag with a hole cut out at the top works wonders......hey you gotta do what you gotta do!!

    Stay dry and safe :)

    Heidi; I think the storm has pretty much skiped us, but I am concerned for Newfoundland.

    Connie;
    I was very angry yesterday; I agree; don't mess with shopping! The government is trying to appease the conservatives. It does not help in any other way than to get their core votes.

    Chloe;
    Precisely. This Sunday shopping issue is getting very tiring. Just let people decide for themselves. I don't like this 1982 Moscow feeling....Mr.C said that was a bad analogy, but I think it applies in terms of the governm,ent decising what is best. Hmpf!

    Michelle;
    Yes, I've done that one myself!
    His old raincoat with the sleeves that are too short will ahve to do; but it looks as though the rain has let up, thankfully!

    No shopping on Sunday. How strange that seems. Sounds like some of our "blue" laws down here. Glad the storm missed!

    Over here shops are only open Sundays the last 3 weeks before Christmas. It just means that we get used to plan ahead ;)
