OK, I admit that shopping online is not that exciting or unheard of almost 10 years into the 21st century, but it still amazes me. And I am always surprised at how many people still tell me that they have not ever shopped online and do not intend to start.

My work attire consists of shirts with my HelpMeRick.com logo and Dockers pants. Fortunately, my pants size has remained the same for at least the last 12 or so years, and since I haven’t grown taller in that time either, I know exactly what to get…no need to enter a dressing room. For me, shopping for anything in a store might as well be a prison sentence…I despise it.

In need of new pants, I decided to head over to Dockers.com and was pleasantly surprised at how easy and quick it was to select my pants and get them ordered. Zero shipping costs, zero hassles, zero parking problems, no problems with hunting for the right size or color, and no fighting crowds at the store. Took me all of 10 minutes to shop and pay for my 3 pair of pants.

As long as you shop at reputable, recognizable online stores or carefully read and trust a smaller site’s privacy and shopping rules, shopping online should not create any problems for you.

Thank you Internet, my pants will arrive by courier (UPS), and I will have again avoided having to step into a store.
