People Who Shop Online Hate People
from the well,-not-quite... dept
It turns out the reason a large percentage of people shop online is because they don’t want to talk to people. The study shows that around 40% think the “best” thing about online shopping is being able to avoid having to talk to other people. Seems a bit anti-social. The study also found that shopping online saves you time, which is apparently just what the anti-social, stay-at-home type wants. How long until someone turns this into a stat used by the anti-internet crowd explaining that we’re creating a generation of people who hate people?

Online shopping allows me to check product descriptions and such at a much faster rate. I can also read part customers’ reviews and compare prices/service between a multitude of companies with the mere click of a button.
Hate may not be the correct word
I didn’t take from that article that us on-line shoppers (I do it quite a bit) hate people. For me it is more the convience of shopping on line, avoiding parking hassles and such. Besides if I can save several days a year by shopping on-line that is more time I can spend with people I don’t “hate”.
I still almost all food shopping at the local market (I have ordered gourmet coffee on-line) and almost all of clothing shopping at my haberdasher (hey, it was UK article).
Finally, I have a classic VW van I got in payment for some graphic work I did for cash strapped person. Try buying parts for that a local auto parts, the web has quite a bit to offer classic autos.
i hate people
Yes , I shop online because I hate people. I am 27 and I am proud to say that I have never had a friend in my life. People disgust me. I would rather sit at home and preserve my virginity.
