going out of business...sort of

last weekend dominique and i met up with my parents for dinner. at dinner my mom told me that linens and things was going out of business and that they have a lot of kitchen/grille stuff that i should check out to see if i can get any deals. now i'd heard of linens and things, but due to the word "linens" i figured i wouldnt be very interested in the things.

so dominique and i went to the one near us. and i know why this place is going out of business. the prices are ridiculous. there was a pot there--yes, a pot--that cost $360. that was the going out of business price. i shit you not. that must be the best pot ever. for $360 i would expect the best meal i ever had each time i used the pot, and maybe it could jerk me off after i'm done or something. it had better for $360.

also, the "going out of business sale" was only 20% off. i'm sorry, but going out of business warrants at least 50% off items. 20% is more like "hey, it's presidents day, woohoo."

anyway, perhaps i will return when the things are closer to 50-80% off.

we bought some curtains before they announced the going out of business thing... we brought back the receipt to see if they'd honor the 20% discount. the answer was NO. assholes.

hmmm curtains. 20% off would probably be like $1200. no wonder they wouldnt honor it.

i am thinking of going back if the sale improves to 50% + off, but let me ask this...did the curtains fellate your husband? i refuse to pay their prices if it's not worthwhile.

I could write a whole post on how it is impossible to quit Vonage. They just won't let you.
