There's nothing like a coupon...

To send the fat chicks swarming.

Admittedly it was a good damn coupon.  And before you get pissed, remember that I know of which I speak, being 1) a fat chick, and 2) Armenian (read: cheap)

The local Lane Bryant had a grand re-opening today, with 40% off EVERYTHING in the store.  I needed a belt and so friend Kj and I were off to the mall this evening.

HOLY SHIT.  I've never seen so many people in a store.

The new store is divided in half, with one half devoted to clothes and accessories, and the other half to lingerie and sleepwear.  The entire lingerie half was so full you couldn't move.  Not with people picking out bras and panties, but with the LINE FOR THE CASH REGISTER.  It was like Disneyland without the ride payoff.

Needless to say we put back the things we were considering and went across to Torrid and spent our money there.  And then I came home and ordered the belt I was looking at for about the same price online as in the store (20% off all online purchases plus another coupon!)

I do love a good sale. But, I too hate standing in long lines. I will do it for the Victoria Secret semi-annual sale. Only time I buy my undergarments...or if I see a really good sale.

Armenians are cheap too? I didn't know that. Personally, I'm Scottish and an Honorary Jew. Can I be an honorary Armenian too? That would make it a trifecta.

I thought it was just we Scots that were cheap!

I won't wait in line either. On-line. A God Send.

Heh, the store is the place you get to see it in person... online is where you buy it without the wait, except for delivery. Life in an online world it good. *grin*

I hate shopping in stores for that very reason.
