Man, I would be so mad if that happened to me.
Do they take checks? I may have to bring some checks with me this year just in case of something like this.

i think i would actually ride my daughters bicycle to the store if my car broke down, fortunately i have 2 cars.im the kind of person that plans ahead of checks and rechecks.
do i have my wallet, is my credit card in there, are all my stuff laid out, my alarm working, which store to hit first, and what im getting and stuff.

My fear is that I will have to pee while I'm in line. I take a medication that causes me to have to go A LOT and it makes it difficult to hold it. I guess I'll have to cut out all liquids at 2pm on Wednesday.....

Why don't you just ask someone to hold your spot and leave to go to the bathroom?

Ha ha.. ask my husband. He fell asleep in line last year at Staples, and of course, no one woke him up. So he missed the item that was supposed to be my Christmas gift (the GPS). I wasn't very happy that day! So to him, that would be worst thing! This year he is going with a friend.

Postby Number1Shopper » Fri Nov 07, 2008 9:51 am

1. Oversleep
2. No cash or credit cards
3. Line Jumpers
4. Employees buying up the deals first.

Several years ago, I wound up with a migraine on BF. I cried all the way home (and not just from the head pain!) :cry:

oh that stinks, i went into toys r us one day in a mad frenzy, and 30 minutes later, heading to the car, i realized i had left my sleeping baby in the car, i was horrified!
i ran to the van, and he was peacefully sleeping. Thank the Lord!!!
he is now, 15 month old tyrant, but ya..
i am ashamed.
i still feel mortified thinking about the fact that he could have been screaming the whole time, thank God he wasnt

I hate that! Last year my cousin and I got to Wal Mart about midnight and at that time we were the 15th or so in line... well by 3:30 we ended up being 30th and then by the time the doors opened we were 50th! I think that some people had gotten in line about the same time as us but then let friends or family cut in line w/ them when they started to arrive. We still ended up getting everything that we wanted but if we hadnt I would have been really upset :x
