Cosmic Crisp apples weren't yet available anywhere even though I begged the stock clerks to run and to get the manager. I was mad they weren't being sold in stores yet. Yes, I tried to pull a Karen, but the clerks just laughed. (Notice they were laughing AT me, not with me! I was not laughing.)
In the last few years, retailers opened their doors in the dark cold hours of the morning on the day after Thanksgiving to kick off the Christmas shopping season. This year, they are not even waiting, starting things on Thursday night!
