Used books sales: Homeschoolers gone bad?

If you are looking for an x-rated video to follow, you've come to the wrong place.

But, like many music enthusiasts or Black Friday shoppers - homeschoolers are just as quick to sit outside in the wee hours of the morning awaiting the opening of doors.

What are we doing during the wait time, you ask?  We are scouring over our prepared lists and plotting our plan of attack with military precision.  We are memorizing the sellers' hall map so we will have both hands free to grab our desired goodies.  We are instructing our fellow comrades to keep a look out for this and that.

This concentrated effort can only be disrupted by the sound of metal clicking as a key turning in the door lock.  This sound can rally hundreds of moms straight out of their chairs sending tumblers of coffee sailing through the air.

And though we know love is patient and kind, there will be some nudging, grabbing and scowling.  There will be the victory of a long sought after book for a tenth of the price and the agony of realizing you've just bought doubles of the huge book series your child already owns.

<sigh>

At least the company was good!
