Things I hate the non BF people do.

Postby justtobeme2 » Thu Nov 20, 2008 12:17 am

They drive by veeeerrrryyy slowly when it's late with a video camera like we are fish in The Living Seas ride at Disneyworld at feeding time.
They ask us 500 times, while they sit in their warm car, "what time did you get here?".
They ask us 400 times "while they sit in their warm car" What are you waiting for?" At which point I always have said a 'Dustbuster' but I have to come up with something better this year, a DVD perhaps?

I'm thinking of making a sign that says "we arrived here at x am YESTERDAY".

Do they do this at your BB on BF?

Not so much in Douglasville, GA. HOWEVER, when we lived in Clearwater, FL, there were ALWAYS people doing that! Or they would come around opening time, stay in their warm cars and watch the stampede when the store opened the doors.

At BB I tell them I'm waiting for blank dvd's. It is really funny to see their stupid faces.

This happened to us last year. After a while my friend made a sign because we got tired of everyone asking questions. The sign read: "We are here for the huge sales on Friday. Various items will be on sale including laptops, T.V.'s & computers etc. Please don't ask for specifics! We know its going to rain. We don't care!"

Yep.

Those folks asking those idiot questions remind me of the movie Idiocracy.

What are you here for?


Sigh.........a dual core gigaflop device.


When did you get here?

Sigh..........before you did.


Do you know its going to rain?


Yes..............its called water.


Are you going to be here all night?


Sigh..............does the Store have wheels?


Are you here to buy something?



Grrrrr..............this is called a store.


Do you know its closed right now?


Grrrrr..............do you know your engine is running but the computer is not working?

(and the idiot! got the idea that the automobiles engine had a computer malfunction.......................grrrr I hate it when they are too stupid to understand the insult.)

So here's my question to the nonBfer's.....Why are YOU here at 2 in the morning? Obviously I'm here to get a good deal. I have a purpose. Clear and set. YOU however are roaming around at 2 in the morning looking at people. What are you getting out of this? I will at least leave with something that I can put my hands around. You"re still wondering what I'm doing as you shake your head in dumbfoundedness. I also am shaking my head in dumbfoundedness but I at least know why. :twisted:

And last but not least are the folks who drive up at three am on BF and want to try and convince me to give up my first in line spot at Circuit City for ten bucks!..........hell no!








Anywho unless CC has better deals it looks like I am either doing an online or a sleepin.

Last year, no word of a lie I had 12 people ask me what I was in line for. By person No. 4 I had a pretty good story. I told them I was in line for the Hannah Montana Video Game ($9.99), a two-pack of Energizer AAA batteries ($1.99), 50 First Dates on DVD ($4.99) and the latest James Blunt CD ($9.99).

They got confused.
