And why are their receipts so gigantic?

I went to Circuit City today, thinking there was a chance that there might be something I "needed" to buy. Fortunately, the only thing I bought was Moby's latest CD. But as I was walking around the store, I went by the area that had iPods and iPod accessories, and I saw something that just cracked me up.

On the table was a small, clear, acrylic square with rounded edges, the same size as an iPod, with a white plastic layer adhered to one face. Printed upon the white plastic was an image of the iPod buttons, and the following words, which I am not making up:

NON-WORKING DISPLAY MODEL

Well, no kidding. A solid chunk of clear acrylic doesn't hold 40 gigabytes of music?

Greetings, from Gig Harbor, WA. I am a friend of Justin Haskins. He has failed to update his blog recently, so I decided to check yours out. I enjoy your comic strips, by the way. Have a good one.

Yes indeed. Circuit City receipts. Piss me off every time because they are so huge. I get excited thinking, "there's gotta be a rebate on here!!!" Yet, there's not. So sad.

love meagan
