Wes Rant: Hot Christmas Toys
O.K. It's been awhile since I've gone off on a rant...but something has really ticked me off. Hard to find Christmas toys.
I'm a parent to a 8 year-old little girl and she wants what every kid wants for Christmas. Tops on her list...one of the gold Hatchimals from Wal-Mart, one of those giant LOL Surprise balls, and Fingerlings. Do you think I can find them in stores? The answer to that is "NO!" I cant find them in stores or on-line...unless I want to pony up and pay double the price.
I am like most Americans. I work! I put in a full day here on the radio, and I'm out and about working on the weekends. I don't have time to sit out in front of Wal-Mart or Toys R Us waiting for doors to open so I can run in, buy up the hot toys and sell them on eBay or Craigslist for double the price. Its greed. In the meantime my daughter will get a stocking full of socks because her dad works hard.
'Tis the season for greed. I hope Santa leaves coal in your stocking.
By the way, she also wants a Barbie doll that has a dog that poops. Plenty of those around.
