Not sure if many of you know this or not but this past Saturday at Old Navy was there $1 flip-flop sale. What you probably already know from my previous posts is that I am a total flip-flopaholic…yup its a word, I just made it up.
So of course, I just haaaddd to go on Saturday morning to get me some deals. I got to the nearest Old Navy at about 9:30 am and had a feeling it would be busy, but what I encountered was something more like Black Friday. At this time there were already huge lines at the checkout and the flip-flops were sparse and also spread throughout the store. It was actually kind of exciting trying to find where they put all the women’s flip flops…you see this is a very small Old Navy.
Anyways, I calmly looked for flip flops in my size and just about any color that would have it. I’m a size 7 and so is most of the female population. After about 10 minutes I noticed there was an influx in women…yes most of the flip flop buyers were women. The sales associates would bring out boxes filled with flip flops and just set them down anywhere just to replenish the stock on the floor.
I’m not even lying when I tell you the women attacked those boxes like pigs at a trough during feeding time! .
I even have a battle wound to prove it! Not kidding, a huge chunk of my skin off my knuckles is hanging on some rack at Old Navy. And since I was getting shoved out of the way by these Linebackers, I decided to play dirty.
I sent little ole’ Hunter in between these beasts and their legs to find my size. Is that stooping low? I think not! I was smart. And besides, that’s one of the many perks of having kids.
After getting 10 pairs in 10 fabulous colors, I stood in line at the checkout for a good 30 minutes. There was a 5 pair limit per customer, so instead of only getting 5 or going back to the end of the line to stand there for another 30 minutes, you can bet your ass I handed my son a $5 bill and made him purchase my other 5 pairs right behind me. Smart again! I even influenced the woman standing behind me to do the same. Hey, kids are consumers too.
Did I really need 10 pairs of flip flops in every color of the rainbow? Yup.
