Doorbuster....My Bum

How you all doin??? Good??? good to hear.

This morning was supposed to be a very exciting morning because I decided that i was going to go to the Kmart "doorbuster" sale to buy a new DVD player, nothing fancy, just one of those $29.95 ones.

Now working at Billy Hyde, Doorbuster sale (which is this weekend just in case you were wondering) to me means people camping out, madness at the counter, people pushing, possibly even trampling each other and stock running out very quickly, so naturally with that being my only experience of a "doorbuster" sale, I was quite excited about being involved in Kmart's as a customer and not a sales rep. Like I normally am. So I got up extra early and went and picked up Dave and off we went, we arrived at the shops right on 9 and I quickly made my way to Kmart, but you know what I was very disappointed. There was no madness, no mayhem, no nothing, I wasn't even sure if the sale was even on at the particular Kmart, but the signs around the store told me it was. So I made my way to the DVD section got my DVD player and that was it, I didn't have to push or shove anyone, and I was very disappointed.

Anyway, the day hasn't been all disappointment, after purchasing the DVD player, which took no where near as long as we had planed, Dave and I decided to walk around a little, and much to my suprise we did so listening to the sweet melodies of ChrIstmas Carols. And this got me all excited again...Why... Because I LOVE CHRISTMAS and...

"Christmas is coming,
The goose is getting fat.
Please put a penny in the old man's hat
Please put a penny in the old man's hat"

...and that means it is now acceptable for me to start playing Christmas carols everywhere I go! It also means that Christmas is coming and I love Christmas... So all you people like me, its okay you can play the carols now, go for your life, spread the Christmas Cheer!

Just a thought I had.

Stay tuned.

you can't play the carols at work because they get turned off after about 20 seconds, i think retail sales people hate carols seeing at hought they listen to the same cd over again
for a nine hour shift you listen to the same cd 7.7 times for the day.

Try it see what happens
