I should have listened.
But no, I didn't think it would happen in Rochester.
After all Purl lives in Houston, a big ole city with lots of folks.
Who lives in Rochester after all.
The population of Prince William County in Virginia is larger than this city.
But Purl called it.
She knew better than I did.
It's like this: I tried to get Hannah Montana tickets on Saturday and couldn't.
I was on the internet, credit card in hand at 10:00 and could not get through.
Oh I got into the word verification part of Ticketmaster, but then the system got hung up.
By the time I could actually get past that the tickets were sold out.
Apparently this is happening all over the country.
Scalpers are snatching up the tickets and then reselling them.
I'm sorry, I wish I could take my daughter to see this concert but I refuse to pay more than face value for these tickets. And I will not pay $2000 -- yes, 2000 smackeroos -- for four tickets to a concert.
The seller on eBay doesn't even live in New York -- he (or she) is in DC!!!
This is obscence.
I think we'll just watch Hannah Montana on the Disney Channel and be satisfied we have cable.
