Waiting In Line for the Dark Knight...

Waiting In Line for the Dark Knight…

I waited in line last night in front of Best Buy in the Mission with my friend Jimmy, whom we affectionately call “Bruce Wayne” to be the first in line to get the limited edition Batman figures at midnight. So, the story was that we started waiting at 8:30PM freezing at 48 degrees weather. Jimmy was first in line (me 2nd), so he has earned the title of being a complete Batman fanatic. He wanted the limited edition figures of both Batman and Joker, but you’re only allowed one figure per person. So, the plan was for Jimmy to get the Batman, and I get the Joker. And there’s only 7 total available for each character in the entire store starting at midnight. The 3rd person in line was an employee at Best Buy, and rules are that he has to line up to. It wasn’t until about 10pm that a line began to form, and by 11:30, there were about 100 people. They held a raffle for a $25 gift card, a soundtrack CD, and an autographed copy of the movie by Christopher Nolan. Jimmy, that lucky bastard, won the gift card. I wanted the autograph, but I ended having to buy the movie (included a free joker card-while supplies last). Anyways, in the end, we got the figures Jimmy wanted, and now I’m home warming up, watching my copy of “The Dark Knight”…
