I guess we just need to remember that this is hugely easier for the WAHMs. I know it is making the customers sad, but that is how it has to be, I guess. I think I won't find myself at Hyena cart stockings anymore just because I truly CAN'T get anything so it just stresses me out. There isnt even a glimmer of hope anymore...

I think the hyena cart is CRAZY!! 80 people salivating over 3 covers every 10 minutes.........there has got to be a better way!!!

Also, no one should read to much into what is being posted this morning~~we are all just cranky & venting!! Holli.....ENJOY THAT PIE!

But, it really makes me feel sad and guilty that I got kp. I never scored with the old cart.

Going back to hiding now...

Holli
I'm not upset that anyone else got one, just that I wasn't fast enough. Hey if you got one, more power to you and enjoy it!!
It just seems alot harder with this new cart system, I feel like I don't even have a chance.

Congrats though!

I keep thinking this will get easier because the folks who are the fastest will get theirs and the demand will lessen. So perhaps by next fall it will be easier. Is this just faulty logic?

This morning in bed I asked myself whether I felt lucky or not and try to score one. I quickly decided I wasn't lucky because I was awake before 7:00. LOL Then I rationalized further that for $30 maybe I should try and find another soaker. Congrats to anyone who got one and don't feel guilty. You'll just have to treat it like a furry friend.

I just don't get how it works, how can it be gone that fast? HOW HOW HOW? I'm usually a pretty good stalker, but this damn cart makes it impossible. Up until the cart I could usually walk away with something from a stalking and now my stalking days are numbered. I think I'm more upset about that then not getting a KP. Jamie, can I join you in your retirement home? I have no energy left to defeat and take down the heyna cart :

I'm happy for those of you who got your KP. Holli, please don't feel bad. You deserved the cover just as much as anyone else and I know deep down we all know it. Emotions are just running at full speed and everyone is pumped with TOO MUCH adrenaline. Congrats to those who scored!

I just wonder what the solution is to these types of things. If making and stocking in store products are easier for the WAHM, well, people get mad, sad, upset, disappointed, angry, depressed because they didn't score one. What are the other options? Everyone puts their name in a hat and a name gets drawn for a certain diaper? Or what about these all go up on ebay? That's still not fair because I have a feeling that the auction would drive the price of the cover way up there, making it unobtainable for a lot of folks. That's not bad for the WAHM of course. :LOL

Did anyone get any glitches, though? On the third round, after I hit buy, it went to a totally blank page. And on the fourth, a page came up that it exceeded limitations, or something like that.

Karen???

I like the lottery idea. Everyone who wants to buy can email the wahm after the preview. They can be assigned a # just like a raffle, and if your # is randomly selected then you get to pick one from what is left. Those who won would be out of the running until all the #s came up.

That is how I feel.I used to be able to score at almost every stocking until Hyena cart came along.I guess I really need to appreciate what I have because this hyena cart is the end of my stalking era.

OH....MY........GOODNESS!!! I cannot believe it! I actually GOT one! OMG!!! I didn't think I got any of them, since EVERY TIME I refreshed, pasted my email, and clicked pay now, and EVERY TIME it immediately said "sold out." When I had given up (at 10:20 and 2 seconds), I thought I would check my email one more time before getting off the computer to go to my LLL meeting, and LO AND BEHOLD, there's an email saying I WON the DISCOUNTED MEDIUM HAND-DYED GRAPE CASHMERE!!! Wow! I don't even know why I was giving into this insanity. I mean, I JUST started CDing. I am still waiting on my stash even! What in the world do I think I'm doing STALKING the hyena cart for goodness' sake? I'm no hyena! No one will even know how special this is except me! OH, but I PROMISE I will love it and give it a good home!!!

This is so silly.......... My mouth is all dry from the excitement!

(Now, please don't hate me... Thank you.)
