I know it sounds terrible but last year when I THOUGHT I bought a PS3 bundle, it wasn't until Monday a few days later that I realized we didn't pay for the PS3 because the girl didn't ring up the system! So, as soon as I found that out I had called the Target we purchased it from, to talk to a manager. Mind you this Target was somewhere in St Louis, and I live in TN. He was of course upset to find that no employee checked our receipts, however, he ended up giving us like 10 or 15% off the price for being honest.

So we had to buy a gift card at our local store, call it in to him and he ended up using that information and mailed us an adjusted receipt. The Target in my town would of not had that happen as they have it setup to check everyone's receipts on the way out of the store. Of course most will think, is this guy dumb? No, the PS3 has a serial number and I wasn't going to jail over a 200 dollar product.


Man, what a mess. Props for being honest, I wouldn't have been sure what to do in that situation. I mean, the store is so far away, and I wouldn't want the person who rang me up to get in trouble. But that's a $200 system, and I wouldn't feel right in the least inadvertently stealing it. You did the right thing.

Also, small world. Cookeville, TN right here.

You didn't notice your total was $200 less than it should've been?

So, in other words, it's a prediction based on nothing specific, correct? You probably should have stated that as people may assume you're an employee or someone actually in the know.


Based on what I SEE. I'm not pulling this out of thin air. And I did say this list is not exhaustive and not 100% gauranteed and apparently I am in the know if I can provide this info. Geez, try to help some people out and get skewered.

The Sears ad has been posted on bfads.net, and it's a big disappointment gaming-wise.


The only thing game-related I saw in that entire ad was a Mario pillow for $8.99.

Props to you for being honest. Most would not have and in this situation I am not sure I would have either. Sounded like you had to go out of your way and it wasnt really your fault. If you didnt hide the item and it was clear that you expected the item to be scanned and rung up I doubt they would have been able to go after you for theft. IF they ever saw something and noticed the issue the worst they would do is try to contact you and ask about it.

I am so glad that thus far all the black friday stuff is looking like a big pile of "Meh". Not having to fight any of the craziness is something that appeals to me. Hopefully the Cyber Monday stuff will start to look a bit better, though.

Geez, Need for Speed Most Wanted for $30? The game just came out a week ago.


Need For Speed games have been on sale on Black Friday the past two years in a row. No surprise here. Hot Pursuit came out on the 16th of November, and The Run came out on the 15th of November.

Maybe that means Black Ops II will be a possibility as well.

I'm sure they'll come. Give Amazon, Target and TRU a chance to throw their hats in the ring. I'm sure some ACIII:L bundle deals will show up too.

But that's a $200 system, and I wouldn't feel right in the least inadvertently stealing it. You did the right thing.



In fact, Theft is a specific intent crime, which means that there is some requisite purpose or intent you must have when you commit the act that constitutes the crime.

People often wonder if returning stolen property can provide a defense to theft or prevent charges from being brought in the first place. Returning stolen property generally does not provide a defense to a charge of theft.

You can always count on Americans to do the right thing...

Mayor Carlos Hernandez, the esteemed City Council and the City of Hialeah honored Terrorist and CIA agent Luis Posada Carriles with the Key to the City of Hialeah, along with a proclamation naming the day, Luis Posada Carriles Day in Hialeah.

Posada has been convicted in Panama, of involvement in various terrorist attacks and plots in the Americas, including: involvement in the 1976 bombing of a Cuban airliner that killed seventy-three people; admitted involvement in a string of bombings in 1997 targeting fashionable Cuban hotels and nightspots that killed an Italian citizen.



http://rt.com/usa/ne...cuba-terrorist/

But what I hope is that this cases underscore the urgency of reversing the hypocrisy not just because it’s the right thing to do, but because it is essential for our national security.

We had a lot bought that night it just didn't become apparent until I thought to myself that it actually didn't sound right, I just now know to look at my receipt from now on (but with the chaos that night, we just wanted out of the store, so common sense left my mind that moment). I actually even went up to a security person and he didn't even bother to check our receipts that night from what I remember, so that's a typical thing I do anyways when leaving a store. I just thought I'd share that story because it's a real hard decision how to go about, and in the end, the manager was caring but it could of been YMMV. I made my girlfriend call because I felt like if I were to call as a male they would of just said to take it to the nearest store, which is what he was going to say at first, and basically not be able to purchase the system for the black Friday price.

I haven't seen the prices but has it been noted that Big Bang Theory season 5 is going to be on sale? I'll wait to get it if it is. I do have 2 extra season 4 of Big Bang Theory sitting around from the last time. It was real easy to just order it online but it took forever to get in the mail so that's why I ended up with an extra and didn't bother returning it.

Or you can trade it in to BB for $42 (after GCU) and rebuy it on BF with the gift card, and make just a little bit too without losing the RZ cert.

Anyone know when the Dark Souls Prepare To Die Edition (disc) will hit the US?
