Default 2000 Oct26: When I waited in line for the PS2, things got a bit messy in the morning.

Yep. I'm one of those "losers" that waited in line. I got to Target at 2AM, my wife showed up at another Target at 5AM.

At 6AM, we were all given tickets and told to go home and come back promptly at 8AM. Any later, your ticket is given to the next person. I was #22 of 35 PS2 consoles.

Those that arrived too late, still waited.

My wife, on the other hand, was #62 of 65. Wow. Talk about close.

She got her PS2 without any problems. I - on the other hand, arrive at 7:55AM and the people who waited with me were in the store waiting for me. When they saw me, they all cheered! The chaos outside was not what I expected. There was a new line and a Target employee telling them that there were no more PS2's.

There were curses and shouts at the employee. Some saw me walking in and called me a few choice words like "greedy", "spoiled" and the usual mother-effer.

When I paid for my PS2, I got two games to go with it: Dynasty Warriors 2 and SSX. Great games for a start. Then I was asked if I needed an escort to my car. The crowds were there. There was a news van interviewing the lucky PS2 buyers.

I said "Nah, I don't need one."

I ran to my car as fast as I could. No one was going to touch my PS2. Except me. I got home and went to bed....I was too sleepy to play and laid down next to my wife...who was passed out next to her PS2.

The End

Oh....and Shadowsonic was the one cursing at me.

She's mine. Even said a couple weeks back while we were shopping "Let's go home so I can watch you play Bully."

actually i think they do it to capture the looks of horror on peoples' faces as they stand in line, desperately waiting for the latest nerdbox.
