CompUSA Insanity

I headed to CompUSA this afternoon to pick up another Linksys WRT54G wireless router, so I can finish setting up the network in the house in preparation for moving all of our inside phones to VoIP later next month. As I pulled up to park, I noticed a line of about 30 people in front of the store.

“What’s the line for?” I asked the last guy. “Fifty dollar XBoxes” he said.

Wow, not even a $50 XBox is worth having to stand in 95F heat in July in Texas. I went on inside and did my shopping. As I was looking around, they called out three times on the PA, “We have three vouchers for the fifty dollar XBoxes left, if you want one, come to Customer Service.” I guess it wasn’t worth standing in the heat after all…
