  3. That's just it, I'm a non confrontational person...I flee confrontation...I know there are a lot of THOSE people out there...that's why I refused to stand in line at Office Depot.

    What I didn't tell you guys is that I passed up many other bargains at Walmart, World Market, Toys R Us, Pier 1 Imports, Fred Meyer, Circuit City, Best Buy, Old Navy...

    I knew there would be problems at those places, because the ads said "guaranteed minimum of 2 per store". Basically they were offering these items at a major discount, but they would likely only have 2 per store. This means that if 20 people all line up for that one thing, then 18 of them are going to be irritated.

    The stores are CREATING the meelee. They take a few highly sought after items, and advertise them for next to nothing, but they only offer a small quantity of them between this time & that.

    It's a glimpse of the future...one day food will be so scarce that it will take a days wages to purchase a loaf of bread. If bread is available, there will be chaos.
     
  4. Ain't that the truth,,, Kitsap girl. Hey, we have all those stores that you mentioned so now I can see when they talk about the U.S. and Canada becoming one that it could come true.as now our dollar is at par with yours too. Hmmm, what do you think. Might be sooner than we think.
     
  5. The sooner the better...I want out of here.
     
  6. I remember one year this little old lady got trampled at Walmart because there were people racing back to get the 50-dollar DVD players. Remember that?

    Walmart turned around and laid one away for her! LOL You'd think they'd just give her one, poor thing.

    I worked at Shopko a long while back. The employees (me included) knew what the best bargains were and we were hiding things in the back room. Then we showed up and stood in line with everybody else, he he he:D

    I know that wasn't fair, but I bet a lot of the other stores are doing the same thing.
     
  7. I am sure that goes on more than we know Whirlwind.
     
  8. You are wise indeed Mom!
