    Got my income tax refund about 3 weeks ago and went straight to Wal-Mart (had been looking everywhere for a couple months, never seeing any and everytime I asked they always said no everywhere, every time. It was just another quick trip, totally expectant for nothing). But what do you know, on the bottom shelf peeking through all alone was a Wii box. Immediately I briskly walked to the sales girl and asked her to open the cabinet for me, asking if it was a Wii or just a box. She then said she has one at the front, and walked me to the counter. They had like 3 in a glass shelf. Checked out and grabbed a couple sodas from the soda machine and left, the happiest person in the area! Couldn't wipe the smile off my face the whole trip home. The memories are still fun!!

    I'd say that's lucky. In my area (around Chicago) there are 9 million people so lot's of competition!

    i cant stand people like those two teenagers who just get it easy like that, i went to wal mart and there was absoloutley no orginization at all, we saw people saving spots for friends who wer going to be "back soon", we came to find out they saved spots for about 20 people....frustrating that they basicly cut, because they never waited in the first place, well there was about 70 people there and the wal mart people wouldnt give us any indication on whether we should stay or leave, so of course we ( me and family ) stayed. then they told us everyone in line would get one, so about 3 hours later the dude comes out and lets like 25 people in and basicly sayed to the rest of us....goodbye. then we drove to target, where the orginization was fabulous, there was a perfect list made by a fanboy who had been in line for a day, we were 15 out of 25 and they past out tickets to those of us who would receive wiis in the morning, come morning we pack up our stuff off the street and get ready to go in, they gave us free popcorn and coffee while we waited, how nice of them, then we went in and i got my wii! still makes me happy
