Just sayin'

Point-of-sale equipment and software came today. Too bad there's no computer to run it on, to play with and have fun randomly scanning barcodes into. Perhaps tomorrow. Or not. The store *coughcircuitcitycough* doesn't seem at all interested in telling me when they can have the computer in stock. They aren't particularly interested in even returning a phone call... or rather, a series of phone calls, from (at this point) a pissed off and unusually grumpy hausfrau. (I was nothing but pleasant on the phone, I assure you.) They don't even seem to care, not that they know it yet, that I drive a gianormous Suburban, with loads of power in her low gears, especially the one I use when off-roading around downed trees (total sticks out here, folks... people only come out here to dump bodies). The front of the store is all glass. You put it together. Only shhh. I can't plead insanity if y'all spill about this little 'premeditation'. I'm just glad I thought to try it. When my old yoga instructor brought it up I scoffed. I was wrong. Premeditation is very calming. *wink*

I'm very disappointed in the CC people. We won't tell... although if they monitor your blog, you're in trouble *wink*

Cami, go demand a refund and get your computer from someone who cares. (Like www.NewEgg.com, or somewhere.) Vern's a computer geek, so we buy all of ours in pieces and assemble them in house (well, except for the laptops), or I could give you a better source online. Oh, or you can go to Costco. They've got good prices, and you can only buy things in stock there. ;o)

Best o' luck, girl. Man, I really don't like stores like Circut City (or Office Max, for that matter) . . .

Off to turn off the technology in the house. There's lightning to the south!

Cami - you crack me up! Annalea is righ, demand a refund. Then you can take your money elsewhere or they will come up with a computer PDQ. I can't believe they sold you one without verifying it was in stock first. Love big box stores where the employees are all paid less than minimum wage - sheesh!!!! g

Cami, email me about your computer requirements. I've got an older computer sitting in a closet, it runs Windows 98, but, it might work out for y'all.
