Toys R Us

No luck at Toys R Us.

I left home at 7:30 and got there shortly after opening. The place was dead. The cashiers were sitting on the counters swinging their legs.

I showed my sales ad to one of the girls and told her I was looking for "this Ipod Touch deal". She said, "Ipod Touch?", and reached for my paper to see what I was talking about.
That told me right there they hadn't sold any Ipods this morning, with or without the Gift Card deal.

Then another lady, a Manager, I guess, popped her head from around a display and said "We're out of Ipod Touch-s". 

I said, but the sale just started.  She said, "I know, but..." Shrug.

I knew how all those people at the CVS's felt when they couldn't find any of those Rats that were supposed to be on sale this morning :-(

Oh man! sorry! I actually went to TRU this morning too. They had lots of the ipod touches with the gift card back - signs up all over the place.

:-( Probably every store in the world had plenty...except the one I went to.

Isn't that how it works?
