Well, as I'm sure many of you have seen Tekky's post 'bout camp'n out fer a PS3, that's where the cheapster has been fer the past 32 hours! :hammer: That's right, got in line Wed night about 11pm, was #9 in line, and the store was saying they were supposed to git 10, but there were no guarantees. So I guess you guys can see where this is going already. 1st of all, believe it or not, people will pay big $$$$ fer 'em on ebay. That's the only reason I was there. I figured if I could make atleast a cool $1500 it was well worth my time! I watched the xbox360's sell fer over $5k last year, just fer the gaming console. So I thought I would play those fools this year, and make my fair share of money off of the rich. Well, didn't happen, the cheapster got played! :( The store got a whopp'n 8 units. Now you guys remember what # the cheapster was??? :hammer: Off to bed now fer a little real sleep.

They had a policeman in full uniform jump the queue down here. He just walked into the #4 spot in line and said "this is my spot, anyone got a problem with that". He is now under investigation. He is an 18 year vet also. :???:

Limey, that will be the most expensive toy the DMF ever got. It pisses me off when LEO do something this ignorant. The ol 1 aw s**t wiping out all the good dogs. 18 year veteran obviously doesn't and shouldn't represent his community. Some people just have no honor. Sad.

Cheap, just heard the store manger got caught holding that 9th unit and it was sold just after you packed up! :hammer:

Then there are the smart ones who wait 4 weeks and pick one up dirt cheap during the after Christmas sales...

They're just going on sale here in UT. I'm out on over time to provided protection for the lucky few that get one and of course the rich that are in the parking lot to buy one.

So I get assigned to a store that only has two ps3's to sell. The first two in line are a husband and wife that spent about 3 days together. I'm waiting in the store for them to make the purchase and they begin fighting. " I don't care keep the money from the playstation as long I never have to see you're face again!" They sold one in the parking lot for $2,000 and left talking about getting divorced. I don't think they're going to end up making that much money off of this deal. After court costs and all.

Cheap,

next time you pull a stunt like this, let me know where please.

I want to ride by on my Speedy, no matter the time of night or day, and laugh at you as I go by.


LOL!

I happen to be familiar with a method... It does require some up front cash though. And is pretty risky as if could land ya in prison or a graveyard. :-D
