We were over my buddy's house last night really late, playing games after the whole Turkey Day feast and all. So, we figured, Wal-Mart is on our way
home (it's one of the 24 hr ones), why don't we go see how bad the line is for some cheap TVs? (we were looking for one for her mom's nursing home
room, better than what she has now)...
The sale is supposed to start at 5am. We get there about 3am. Now, we expected we might be too late to feasibly get one (i.e. line longer than the
amount of cheap TVs they had).... What we DIDN'T expect, is that they would already be sold out, and rang up, purchased, and out the door.
In the past, selling these items prior to 5am was something these folks could get fired for (I know, I worked for them during college years). Usually,
the pallets are brought out, all wrapped up, and opened at 5am, to the first come, first severed crowd. Yet, at 3am, no such thing, all the items were
mostly already sold out, etc. (for the sale starting at 5am)!!! WTF Wal-Mart???
Yes, yes, I know all about the evils of Wal-Mart, etc., blah-blah-blah...but getting a 19" LCD for $99 is something you just can't do elsewhere.
We'll still get one for her, maybe even bigger (it's close though, so doesn't have to be big), depending on how the value is on what we find...
Just angering though....
