|I THOUGHT I’D FOUND MY LG TELEVISION|
|THE SALES REP DASH MY DREAMS|
Anyone who’s spent a minute of the Insite realizes just how addicted I am to electronics. That means I was actually mortally wounded by what happened to me on last Friday. It’s when Fry’s Electronics had an unbelievable sale. The store was selling 47 inch LG L.E.D. televisions for only $599. The model was discontinued by the company. The ad went on online and in the paper on Friday. I decided to wait until after work to go and pick my set up. What I didn’t know is everyone called in advance and used their credit cards to lock their LED in. By the time I arrived more than 50 televisions had been sold by 2 pm. That meant I was flat out of luck. I also checked the other Fry’s within our area and they’d sold out as well. It was even tougher for me when I made a quick stop by the store the following Monday. I thought there was hope because two of the LG’s were sitting near the showroom floor. What I didn’t know is that they were also pre-ordered. It was like a nightmare watching the sales rep rolling the tv out to the customer who’d finally arrived to pick it up. It’s back to the drawing board for me. Now, I really know what it means when they say the early bird gets the worm and the LG tv!
