    So on Tuesday, April 29th at 10:45 in the morning I roll up to Best Buy to pick up my copy of Grand Theft Auto 4. Yes, I am a dork who gets GTA 4 on the release day 45 minutes after the store opens. Whatever, I do what I want. Anyways, the point of this rant is that when I pull in the parking lot is full of cars. Now I’ve been to Best Buy before and it’s usually not this full. So I think, “Great, every nerd on the planet is here getting there GTA 4.” So I head up into the store to grab my copy.

    First I get stuck behind a late 70′s (guessing) woman entering the Best Buy. What’s a 70 year old woman doing in Best Buy? Does she need a new 60′ HDTV? Is her washing machine broken and she just ran down to the local electronics store to grab a new one? Is she buying her 9 year old grandchild a copy of GTA 4, there for making him (or her) believe that sleeping with hos and then killing them for your money back (and also gaining health) is except able? Who knows why she was there.

    So after moving at 1/2 MPH for an hour, I get into the store and head over to grab my copy of GTA 4. Is there a line for GTA 4? No. Are there a lot of people getting there GTA 4 there (not pre order)? No. In fact, as far as I could tell only a handful of people wanted GTA 4 (at 10:45 on a Tuesday). So WHAT THE HELL IS EVERYONE DOING AT A BESTBUY AT 10:45 ON A TUESDAY? Have we all become so attached to the latest and greatest that we need the latest 1080p TV and fastest computer with the greatest memory (I know I do). Well at least one thing is good, people buying shit should stimulate the economy.

      If I didn’t have to work I’d be at best buy too. they’ve got all the toys. And sadly, I realize people don’t all share our same entrances.
