Damn You Black Friday!
During a staff meeting, we had a group exercise to get to know all of the new coworkers and I was supposed to say my favorite activity. The nerd in me was going to say, "playing video games," but my friend/coworker called me out and said, "shopping," to which I could only reply, "Hell yeah!" It's just that I can't say no to a good deal, especially if there's a chance to make some money.
My Black Ops deal was the perfect storm for making money AND getting something you want. It was B2G1 (Buy 2 Get 1 for you newbs), plus there was a discount code, free shipping, and cash back through a referral site. The two other copies have already sold on Amazon Marketplace, for a profit of course and my only regret is that I didn't get more to sell.
If only my hustling skills could be recognized and used in the library. They should put me in charge; I would find a way to save the library A TON of money.
