Except, I look at the calendar and see that we're in the end of November. And they all seem to have had the same realization, too, as the hard sell tactics have sprung into being in the last week or so.
So, I'm totally happy to buy from these folks, but the trouble is... from some of them, I only want to buy one or two small things, and after all this buildup of months and months, I worry that won't go over too well.
When avoidance strategies backfire. Ah well :)
