It Drives Me Nuts!

I use to spend soooo much time in Toys R Us stores when my kids were little.
The oldest was a LEGO Maniac.
Seriously addicted to them!
I still have the scars on the bottoms of my feet to prove it.......
Plus I use to sell some things on eBay.

So I had a real good guffaw when I was THIS STORY HERE about a mother/son duo who when on a methodical crime spree and sold the the illegally gotten goods at an online auction/marketplace site which will remain anonymous, by the name of eBay. ;-)

I love the ironic little twist at the end......see if you can figure out what I am talking about with that!

It made me stop and think too.
Now WHY didn't I think of this and implement it?
Ok, I know why......because I wouldn't have been able to live with myself, that's why!

And the title of this post?
So many things about our culture drive me nuts so take your pick. lol
Atcually, it's in reference to that stupid backwards "R" in the toy retailers name.  It drives me insane but I admit it IS a rather clever marketing tool that some ad person came up with for the chain.
And it never kept me from dropping $ on toys in the store so argh!!! at you T-(backward)R-U

What do you think about this story?

  2. Wow. Talk about stupid. First, for stealing, and second for using the gift card. Let us make it easier for them to track us while we steal. Dumb.

    I hear ya on the Lego Manic thing. Of course today he thinks they are too expensive to buy. He did not think that when I bought them;-)

    blessings, jill
