that is the word to describe me for getting up at 4:15am on Friday morning to go shopping! The lengths I will go for my children and for a good deal!:) Here is how my morning unfolded…
first destination: Wal-Mart
targets: 1 talking Lightning McQueen for $10 (50% off), and 3 pairs of disney pajamas…only $5 each!
time of arrival: 4:40am
**upon entering Wal-Mart at 4:40am I found large crowds of people hovering around pallets of shrink wrapped toys…at 5:00am on the dot Wal-Mart employees cut through the shrink wrap…let the madness begin!
mission accomplished: partially…I got the pajamas, but there were only 8 Lightning McQueens, so unless I was willing to risk physical harm there was no way I was getting one!
time of departure: 5:13am
second destination: Toys R Us
target: a playstation 2 that came with 3 free games ($60 savings!)
time of arrival: 5:25 am
**upon entering Toys R Us I headed straight for the electronics department and asked one of the employees what their stock of playstation 2’s looked like…”no problem miss…we have plenty”…”awesome..I was also wondering about the 3 free games…do they have to be the one’s pictured in the ad because those are too mature for my son?”…”no problem..we are actually out of those games so you can pick any 3 games $19.99 or less to substitute”…”awesome…and then do I have to get in line in this department?”….”yes, all electronics have to be paid for here.” I go and pick out my 3 games and get in line…3 HOURS LATER…I finally make it to the cash register…”yes, I would like a playstation 2 and here are the 3 games I picked out”…”I’m sorry miss, but you can’t just pick any three games that you want, they have to be from this list of 5 games”…”WHAT…I HAVE BEEN STANDING IN LINE FOR 3 HOURS BECAUSE I WAS TOLD THAT I COULD PICK OUT ANY 3 GAMES 19.99 OR LESS!”…”I’m so sorry but that was wrong information…blah, blah,blah, blah…
mission accomplished: partially…I walked out of there with a playstation 2 and 1 free game and I will be writing a letter to the district manager. I’m getting mad all over again just thinking about it.
time of departure: 8:35am
I told you I was insane…I think next year I’m just going to sleep in. Anyone else have a case of insanity??
