There is nothing quite as terrifying as the prospect of going shopping over the weekend in search of school supplies. The endless queues, the crowds of harried shoppers, the whining of hungry and tired tots, and so the list goes on. If you haven’t already, it’s time to stop, stay at home, and do it all online. You may have to pay for delivery but that’s already cheaper than bus fare/parking/ petrol.
When life hands you lemons you have a choice. You can, as they say, make lemonade, or, you can cut the lemons in half and squeeze the juice in life’s eyes!

Personally I have a problem with any revenge based action. I usually freefall into despair for a while and then just before hitting rock bottom tend to step back, dry my eyes and make a plan to sort things out. I suppose that’s the delayed lemonade approach.
I have friends, though, whom I would definitely put into the ‘juice in their eyes’ camp. Their mantra of “I’ll show ’em” works just as well in the short term. The real issue here is what is the ultimate outcome of the action.
