This is a testament to how susceptible I am to...I'm not sure what you'd call it; I call it backasswards advertising, but I'm sure there's a less redneck term for it. If someone is trying to sell me something, I'm usually not interested. But as far those Clementine oranges, I read a bunch of posts where people were excited about being able to buy them and was going to buy some more. So then I felt like I needed some, too. Although I had seen these in the store the week before last and had no urge to buy any.
This is alot of the reason why when you see certain shopper blogs posting deals from like Amazon or Groupon or any other online shopping place, and instead of saying "You can get this deal", they'll say "I got this deal" and then others will be like "Hey, I wanna get in on that, too!"
I know some of my friends are trying to get into making money from blogging, so that's something to keep in mind.
Anyway, back to the shop. I wanted to get some Colgate so I'd get a $4 RR back, but they only had one box on the shelf. An employee was stocking on the other side of the aisle and I asked her if they had any other toothpaste displays, like on an endcap or anything. She said if they did it'd be near Cosmetics.
I kinda joked with her saying "You'll be my best friend forever if you could find me just one more box of this toothpaste." She said if there wasn't any on the shelf they didn't have any more.
So I rolled over towards Cosmetics and was looking around and the BA asked me if I needed any help. I asked her if she had any of this toothpaste and she said she'd seen it in the stockroom and went and got me a box.
Nope, I didn't even say a word about that other chick being an asshat about not going to find me any toothpaste. I just let it slide.
Then I wanted to pay back her niceness by buying some of the Saturdate stuff, but gah, I just couldn't. She really tried to sell me the Dove bodywash, but I get BW free all the time, it killed me to think about paying over $7.00 for it after RR.
But now I feel guilty about it. I shoulda just did it. I had RRs I coulda spent.
I did buy a bag of the Suggestive Sale Almonds, though (I needed to spend .02 to get be able to use a $10 RR).
