You got lucky with your "pleasant" experience. I dare you to walk in to any shopping place right now at this time and tell me if it's pleasant. Maybe at 5 or 6 AM when all the deal hoppers are out there, it might be less hectic. Right now - I guarantee it's crazy. My wife's gone out - we'll see what she says when she gets back.

And you didn't get what you went for - you said you wanted a DSLR which was sold out.
well actually no it's not bad i was at the bay and zellers today at noon then i went back to future shop to get another memory card for my other cell. 10 min line up at future shop. i waited in line at the bay and zellers for about 2min. I knew we wouldn't get the dslr because it was a door crasher i got there 5 min after 6am not 5 hours before.

Got a harmon/kardon receiver and 5.1 speaker set... saved $450 (compared to what they have the regular prices listed at). The reciever was the last one and I had to wait while some d-bag decided between it and another one, almost 45 min. But thank god they chose the one I didnt want. Aside from that, it wasn't too bad around 2 pm. I went to the ajax future shop, thought it might be less busy.

Speaking of driving around aunts. My aunt is visiting from Minnesota, we went to go see a movie. on the way home a truck slightly came close to my lane. She freaked on me. Then at the lights the light turned green and i accelerated then she yelled at me because according to heri accelerated too fast. there was no one else on the road the intersecting street is a small side street. i was like for **** sakes. im trying to drive can you stop distracting me it's the same when you tell me don't say oh look at that because you cant handle distractions while driving. then at the next lights i was like for **** sakes how about i just go turn in my ****ing license and buy a ****ing bike because i am sick and ****ing tired of driving in this god dam city with all the ****ing idiots. the light turned green i stood there for 3 seconds i was like there is that long enough and the person behind me started to honk. she dint say anything else to me at all.

They are going to have boxing day sales all week. Retailers are hurting and have to move product.
