You get up at 4 a.m. (assuming you wait until Black Friday) and head to that big box store that enticed you by dangling the carrot (really cool widget with all the bells & whistles for less than ½ price) in front of your nose… with the really, small print at the bottom: “limited quantity available.” Only about 263 other people drove to the big store along with you, and as you get pushed and shoved and make your way through the store, you discover that the “limited quantity” (as in 3) items you wanted were snatched up 20 seconds after the doors opened. The guy behind you curses a blue streak to the store manager (apparently he, too, wanted the really cool widget), who shrugs rather nonchalantly and mutters, “It was posted ‘limited quantity.’ Sorry, nothing I can do.” So, you settle on a different, not as cool widget, pay way more than you expected, and leave the store feeling a little cheated, dejected, and wondering why you even bothered.
