Is e-Commerce that much of a paradise ?

I’m the first one to go online and buy stuff there. I’m lazy, don’t really like to go out shopping, so having the comfort of sitting in my chair to choose my next clothes or gadgets are really valuable to me.
However you have to make some compromises, like spend a lot of time looking for the tee-shirt you always wanted, or this particular brand of shirt that looks so good on you, or tis particular device with that specific color and memory … But most of all you have to make up with the websites selling all these stuffs which for most of them are really lame at it, and really consist in a list of items without too much of a description for the article on sale !

I recently found a really good list of parodies in this article, and I linked them underneath.

There you really realize how much compromises you are really to make in the comfort of your deskchair… That is a lot !

The funny thing however is that when you get back to real life (and by that I mean real shops with real people) , you expect efficiency from shop staff. As a bad example, last Friday it took a lady 5 minutes (no kidding 🙁 ) to cash on the three items I bought on sale in 3 minutes top after entering the shop (okye, I told you I don’t like shopping, so I’m quick in deciding 😀 ). I was ready to leave after two minutes when I realized I was on holidays and spending some good time with my son so I needed to relax … She got lucky in some sort of sense 😀
