SEARS IPAD 2 ON SALE FOR $69, BIG MISTAKE

SEARS ran into a serious issue this week, when its website ran a special but without their permission.  It was reported that consumers were angered when they went to buy a heavily reduced IPad 2 for only $69 on the Sears website.  The problem is, it sells for over $700 and Sears did not approve this sale.

Sears says it was a third-party company that made the error and Sears is now refusing to honor the price.  Needless to say many customers are angry and are sure to fight this til the end.

What do you think?  If you see a published price, error or not, should they honor it?  Well, it happened to me at a big discount electronics store, and after getting into a heated discussion with the store manager, the Regional Manager honored the wrong price.  He also added an extra discount and a gift card valued at $25.  Now that’s great customer service.

While it is unfortunate someone seriously messed up, they may need to suck it up.

(2011 VIDEO) 8-YEAR-OLD KILLED IN BROOKLYN; LEVI ARON ARRESTED

NEWS VIDEO

NEW YORK city is still in mourning as they put a brutally murdered young boy to rest this week.  Leibby Kletzky, an 8-year old Brooklyn boy, was finally allowed to walk home alone from day-camp.  His family even did a test walk with him before giving him this privilege.  But during his first plight into the world on his own, he got lost on his way to meet his parents.  Asking a man for directions he believed he found the right person to help, unfortunately he was very wrong.

In a sick twist of fate, it turns out he asked the absolute worst man for help.  Levi Aron, an extremely religious maintenance worker, confessed to killing the boy after failing to help him find his parents. He told police that he actually took the boy home, falling asleep together then awaking in the morning to sheer havoc.  After seeing news reports about the search for the boy, Aron panicked suffocating the 8-year-old then dismembering him, before packing his body parts in a suitcase, and freezing the rest.
Lucky for the police Aron made critical mistakes along the way, so they were easily able to track him down.  Unfortunately for the family, it was a day too late.  The body had already been discarded in a dumpster, by the suspect.

This is a sick world we live in, looking at Aron he seemed liked any other “normal” man on the street.  It goes to show, parents have to be more cautious than ever.  A child dies of gunshot wounds in a drive-by every day, but  typically in areas where the risks are known.  But how would you know to protect your child from a stranger on ta safe street during daylight hours?  And to have such a violent crime committed on an innocent child.

Well, at least this will not go into the cold case files.  Police charged Aron, on his 35th Birthday, with second degree murder Wednesday.  Hopefully he will spend the rest of his Birthday’s behind bars.

It is a sad day for the family and parents across the world.

2011 CHICAGO TOPS LIST AS WORST DRESSED; ACCORDING TO GQ MAGAZINE

Lady Gaga

So GQ Magazine has been around forever and has incredible well dressed men on its cover.  But seriously, did they have to rank Chicago as the 4th worst fashion city on their recent list of  “The 40 Worst-Dressed Cities in America”.

Not only did they say Chicagoan’s have no fashion sense, they went on to say it was due to our “third-coast-insecurity”.  What exactly does that mean, we are insecure so we don’t know how to coordinate?

GQ also went on to criticize our winters, implying the “Windy City” wears beat down Nike’s, novelty T-shirts, torn cargos, sports hoodies with our beloved Bears, Cubs, White Sox and Blackhawks covered by parka’s almost the entire year, as though our bad fashion sense has something to do with the weather.  And who owns a Parka?

But if you think about it, who wants to dress flashy when temps are below zero and the wind is whipping your hair?  Anyway, a runny nose and frozen face does not look good regardless of what you’re wearing.  And we are beautiful on the inside, which is what really counts right?

There is a small bit to be grateful for, Boston, Pittsburgh and Los Angeles (movie star capital) were also on the list, ranking even less fashionable than Chicago.

And at least we definitely don’t dress worse than Lady Gaga.

(7/15/11 VIDEO) JENNIFER LOPEZ & MARC ANTHONY SPLIT; ANOTHER HOLLYWOOD MARRIAGE OVER

It’s amazing that another seemingly “perfect” Hollywood marriage is reported to be over.  Jennifer Lopez and husband Marc Anthony announced today, they are calling it quits after seven years of marriage.  It appears the birth of their twins in 2008 and millions in the bank, was not enough to keep them together.

While many looking in thought J.Lo and Marc had the true fairytale life, the fact is, we can never tell how happy a star is until a break-up is announced.  They have to smile for the cameras even if they are crying inside.

It’s a shame that the curse of fame and stardom causes many couples in the limelight to separate.  But it goes to show money and flashy material things, is not enough to weather the storm.  Issues in any marriage are complex and a trip to the mall just isn’t to seal the deal.

This is truly a shocker, they seemed so happy on the American Idol season finale.  It is sad to see them split, especially since they have small children.  Hopefully they will find happiness elsewhere.

And we ask ourselves “why?”
