And you will be old some day. Maybe, you could have graciously paid for her purchase( I doubt it was that much) and told her that it was her lucky day, or that "this one's on me". It would have made her day and probably be the only good thing you've ever done.
Then again, a jerk with an attitude like yours, wouldn't think of doing something like that.
No I belive in giving my money to a needy cause old people aren't a needy cause and yes I'll be old and know my place and step aside and give younger people their right to life and not suck it from them! Old people are like old blood cells when they get together they kill everything around them like the young blood cells(Generation)

No great deals at ciruit city. Here's an example.
CC near Waterford Lakes
Garmin 255W:
Dec 24th:$229
During the initial days of the store closing sale, it was still marked at $229. Less than a week later, it was marked at $299, but had a "discounted" price of $271. I guess products are worth more when all sales are final.

That has nothing to do with management. It has to do with lazy, good for nothing employees who don't do their job. That is why Circuit City failed.
Circuit City failed because of bad experiences by their customers. They were sued by the New Jersey for false advertising because of a strategy of advertising prices based upon rebates they offered. Unfortunately, after buying the product, customers got letters responding to their rebate requests saying the product didn't qualify for the advertised rebate.

Then there was the time they bought laptops that had been recalled and returned to a manufacturer due to an overheating problem... yep, good old CC sold them as new products. Then stalled customers on warranty claims.

That was Circuit City.
