For years my wife and I browse the black friday ads on Thanksgiving, seeing if there is "anything we need", and this year, nothing jumped out at meet- except for a multi GB flash drive for less than $10 at Walmart, or the FREE (after rebate) Universal remote control, and ipod ear buds. No HDTV, No Blue Ray DVD, No Netbook....nada, nothing. That gave me an opportunity to sleep in- waking at 6:05 AM on BF.
I decided to go to the gym early, and since its behind TARGET, It would provide a good view of the BF crowds. As I drove thru the mall at 6:30, the parking lots were full, but I park behind the store, so I didn't think it would be busy there. WRONG..... I started towards the gym, and noticed alot of folks walking out of TARGET empty handed, with long drawn out faces...it was obvious they missed their window of opportunity for that high end item they migh not have needed. After the gym I headed to the drugstore and got my remote control, and ear buds getting the amount I paid in credit for the store. I walked out of the store happy inside- and holding two script receipts....which I promptly gave to my wife. Now when she finds out I bought ANOTHER remote control.......(that will be a whole different story!!) You can never have too many RC's now can you?
Updated an hour later: Well, I got a call from my wife at the drugstore, and she told me something I didn't realize- the script had the product I bought. Her comment was " Just what we need, another remote control!" End of story.
