As you may or may not know (or care), I went to LG’s 50% off sale of their new Android phones. I know, I know, I still have the Nokia E63. What you don’t know is that my phone’s screen was broken and since it might cost me a bit of money to get it fixed, and I thought I should just get a new phone anyway.

So silly old me had my mind set on having a new and cheap Android phone that it never occurred to me that, you know, it’s a one-hour sale, pretty well-publicized, and the rest of Metro Manila’s a cheapskate like me and they also want their hands on an Android-powered phone that costs less than ten thousand bucks. But I was like, who cares if the rest of humanity wants to get their hands on the stupid phone? I’ll elbow my way till the very end and get my dirty, grubby hands on an LG Optimus One!

So I was wrong. So very, very wrong.


Mind you, this was hours before the sale started

As you may now know, LG’s Saturday sale ended up so badly that we actually have people everywhere swearing to boycott the LG brand forever. I’m not going into the specifics, but yeah, I was rather peeved as well. But I’m not exactly going to go boycott them, even though I was able to get in SM Megamall even before it opened and I still ended up empty-handed.

However, I’ve been pretty much blue balled with this GAS, and you have no idea what it does to my mind. LG’s sale wreaked havoc with my saving money mojo that I pretty much shift from “I’ll wait until Android phone prices drop” to “DAMMIT, I WANT AN ANDROID NOW I BETTER WITHDRAW MY LIFE SAVINGS” to “OK, I’ll buy an iPod touch instead, like in my wish list” mindsets a few times an hour everyday. Gollum-like.

I know, it’s pretty stupid. I’ll be the first to admit that. I’ve been trying to distract myself by going to random chat websites, but talking to strangers on the web can only do so much. Also, for some reason, strangers disconnect on me quickly. Here’s a random transcript of one of the chats:

You are now chatting with a total stranger! Say something interesting other than: ASL?
You: Hi!
Stranger: hey u wassup

Stranger: ah. maybe i cn take care f dat… hehehehehe

You: I REALLY REALLY DO
Stranger: what?

You: DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY KFC DOUBLE DOWNS I WANTED TO EAT AFTER THAT STUPID SALE?!
Stranger: what’s goign on you scaring me
You: I’M ALREADY FAT AND CREEPY
You: BUT NOW I MIGHT BECOME FATTER AND CREEPIER
You: NOW THAT I AM CRAVING FOR TWENTY DOUBLE DOWNS BECAUSE I’M BLUE BALLED
You: BUT NO KFC ALSO HAD TO RUN OUT OF DOUBLE DOWNS AS WELL
The person you’re chatting to has disconnected
You: NOOOOOOO PLEASE TALK TO ME ANYONE PLEASE

Gee, I wonder why.

Anyway, did you go to that LG or Nokia sale? How did it end up for you? Tell me about it in the comments!
