Bah *$?!in' Humbug!

Well, my first mistake, I suppose, was going to Best Buy. (Well, first was probably waiting till the last minute, but I can blame my husband, the master procrastinator, for that.) Then I requested help from an employee.

Me: "Can you check to see if any other stores have it?"
Her: "Sure... Sunnyvale has one, but by the time you get there, they won't have it any more! *giggle*"
Me: "Can you check other states?"
Her: "Other states? You're going to another state?"
Me: "Yes, I'll be in St. Louis on Saturday."
Her: "St. Louis?...(looks at computer screen) We can check Nevada, Utah, Montana, Idaho..."
Me: "It's in Missouri. Can you check Missouri?"
Her: "Um, I'm not very good on my states."

I really hope this chick doesn't go to one of the high schools where I might end up sending my kid...

December 22 isn't the last minute. You could probably find many people who haven't even started shopping.

Hmmm, not that I'm not on your side (b/c I always am) but how is it Nathan's fault that you started shopping late? Just wondering....'cause I just ignore Adam when it comes to Christmas shopping and buy or make what I think folks would like/want - even the folks on his side. 'Cause Adam doesn't shop unless you sit him down at a computer and tell him which Internet page to go to and make him pull out his credit card... Oh, and the chick at Best Buy is a complete moron.
