Black Friday Horror Story: Target is selling Apple products at full price with a $15 gift card as the "Black Friday Special".
The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt. ~
I have a tendency to key out three or four things and then let them battle for supremacy while I key, so there's a lot of backspacing as potential statements are slaughtered and eaten by the victors. ~
Feel free to quote me. ~
I was at target with my older bro and we were looking at the DVD's. There was a Hello Kitty waffle iron there so he picked it up to move it. As soon as he touches it, this lady GRABS his wrist. I mean, she was lightning quick and then asks, in her sweetest growl "Excuse me, but I want to buy that so give it to me." So my bro is offended that she would just grab him like that and tells her he is buying the waffle iron. The lady tries to pry the iron from his hands and he bolts to the cashier with it! He bought the waffle iron and waited for her at the exit. When she came out and saw that he bought it, she threw her water bottle at him. Then she apologized and bought it from him at $20 above retail price
A couple of years ago, I was in Topeka, KS early at best buy for black Friday. The best buy there had the best organized black friday I'd ever seen.
They would bring out coffee (but nothing for the coffee haters, darn) and doughnuts. They would start at the beginning about an hour before opening and hand out vouchers for the big ticket items. That way, you didn't have to rush in for the BIG items. You knew if you had it or not. I've seen several stores do this recently, but they've been doing it for a long time.
Anyway, as the doors opened, the line began to file in. It was lined up along the front of the store. One guy not in the line tried to rush in from a diagonal and get in before most of the line. This big guy just put his arm out and clothes lined him. The dude did spun completely around, past 270 and landed on his face. He deserved it. Line jumping punk.
"Sympathy means a lot, coming from Kulmar. I didn't think it was possible.
Good luck getting rid of your disease. If you're infected, though, stay away--I can't afford to be a zombie right now.
