Ron .. You Owe Me $12

So I pretty much called it. Sent hubby to Walmart with the two book titles and sure enough Ron, the HORRIBLE book rep, was stocking the shelves. Hubby approached him and asked him whether the two books had come in. WITH THE LIST IN HIS HAND, he rudely tells hubby that he doesn't know. Hubby asks if he could check his list, assuming he knows how to read. Ron tells him that it isn't on the list, he doesn't have and "maybe" Walmart will get it later. Hubby makes the call to me, I gnash my teeth (because it means I have to order online) and go straight to Amazon amd order it. Everything's cool right? WRONG!!!
It doesn't matter how much I fight it but I can't go to Walmart without looking through the books. Stopped fighting it months ago. I'm browsing the books, noticing I have all of them and what do you suppose I see on one of the shelves in PLAIN SIGHT?? Yep, you guessed right - Infinity by Sherrilyn Kenyon. One of the two books on my list. After sending a rather pissed off text to a friend I decide enough was enough and marched straight over to the Customer Service desk to complain. You haven't seen anything until you've seen a very irate book lover. Found out there are MULTIPLE complaints about this guy and I'm given the number for his boss. So Ron ... I'm coming for you buddy! You messed with the wrong book junkie. As I write this my hubby is shaking his head (I get that gesture alot) and is reminding me to breathe. **deep breath** I'm still coming for you Ron!! lol
Oh and just so you all know - yep I bought the Walmart copy as well and will now own 2 copies of Infinity. So tonight's another all nighter. Thank goodness I bought a 24 pack of Diet Coke. Hope you all enjoyed your day...
