The One when I Was Denied the Harry Potter DVD

Tuesday, April 12, 2011

So I just got back from Target where I was so(oooooooo!) excited to buy my copy of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part One. Cuz new release DVDs come out on Tuesdays and today is Tuesday and I had on my calendar that Harry Potter was coming out today. So I mosey on back to the electronics section and am somewhat mystified that I can't find shelves and shelves of said DVD. I did, however, find this book that was also on my to buy list:
My Twilight obsession continues!

But back to the story at hand. I figured since my local Target is undergoing a major renovation and things are completely disorganized they just forgot to put out the Harry Potter DVDs. Silly Target. Fortunately, amidst my mystification and bewilderment that such an important movie could be overlooked, I saw a cart filled with Harry Potter movies so I quickly snatched one up and went about finding the other things on my list.
I proceeded to check out and as the employee swiped my brand new, unopened, mint condish copy of Harry Potter he turned to his computer screen and said, "Um, ma'am, I can't sell this to you for three more days. Where did you find this?" "Back in electronics...." "These aren't supposed to be out yet, I can't sell it to you. "He called over the security guard (was I gonna get arrested?!?) and told her that the Harry Potter movies needed to be removed.

I had the Harry Potter movie in my hands for five minutes. So close yet so far. I guess I've waited this long, what's three more days? My bad for writing down this movie came out on Tuesday instead of Friday...


  1. Should have grabbed it and ran! :) j/k

  2. chalk it up to being way ahead of your time!

  3. hahahahaa bummer! I heard there's the first scene from the second part in there!! bonus material!

  4. Ohhhhh! Silly Target! Dangling it in front of you, then taking it away! Sheesh. :-p

    SOOO cool though that it comes out Friday though! WOO! I may just pre-order on Amazon though... LOL. It's only $13.99 there. How much is it at Target. Do you know? Did I tell you that a couple weeks ago, we had an HP marathon at our house? LOL. I actually want to watch all six again! But we'll probably just have a different marathon now. :-p And I *really* need to get the Twilight movies. I don't own any of them! :-p Although... I have to wait till we... 1.) have money 2.) have all baby stuff bought. LOL.

  5. i just might have run for it. LOL
    i am SUPER excited about friday :D

    marathon for sure.

  6. so close!! to have held it and then had to give it back, wahhhhh!
