Webster defines a shopaholic as, “one who is extremely fond of shopping.” I disagree.

A shopaholic is, “one who uses stores to escape from their everyday strife. Upon shopping, they become calm and happy until they get home and look at their bank account most likely to notice how much more poor they just became. Then they fester over whether or not they should – A: return it, B: keep it but vow to not buy anything else, C: keep it and hide money from oneself, D: keep it and continue racking up their credit cards.”

Webster got it wrong, it’s not about their enjoyment of shopping, it’s about  why their shopping.
