More 3DS deals.Is this system not selling or something?

Best Buy is shaving $40 off 3DS XL systems this week.

Borderlands 2 is $50 at Target this week. SkyRim is $40.  A 3DS XL with Mario Kart 7 is $200 and will net a $20 gift card.

Supposedly there is another Amazon Gold Box event this Tuesday, on 11/11.

K-Mart has Paper Mario: Sticker Star for $30.

Now let’s talk about waiting in line.

Earlier this week my mother and I decided to pick up some toys for my brother’s kids.  We picked the toys and got in line.  As we waited in line, someone in the next line over took up “the cause”.

“The Cause” is when a customer becomes very loud and belligerent because they mistakenly think their purchases are suddenly better than everyone else’s.  In this case, regular announcements and signs were posted describing where layaway was in great detail, yet these two members of the Ignorati joined a regular line, waited for 35 minutes, and then complained when the service they wanted was not present in this particular line.

This is not the way to handle such a situation.

First off, look around.  Pay attention to any signs posted.  Should this fail you or you are legitimately blind;

Ask an employee.  Even if they are busy, saying “quick question: where’s layaway?” or something to that affect should at least give you a finger pointing in the right direction.  Unless it’s the middle finger pointing up.  Then I’m sure no court would convict you.

Should the above fail, then calmly wait in line and explain the situation to the person on checkout.  This person might be able to take care of your problem with a manager override, or might be able to get someone to accommodate you.  Be kind, be patient, and be nice.  Many employees will respond much better to your positive attitude.

If all of the above fail, you probably shouldn’t be shopping there.  It sounds like that store is not up to date on anything.  Go home and order your shit online.

That’s all I got for this week.  Happy Hunting.
