This Patriot went to pick up dad a plate of dinner at a local restaurant this evening. This particular restaurant is usually “VERY BUSY” on Friday evenings….as they were tonight. I had called in our order and the owners daughter stated that they were busy, and it would be about 30 minutes before they could prepare our order. I said “That’s Fine” and proceeded to have a drink while I waited.
I was discussing various issues with the local Bartender and she informed me of her recent ‘Adventure’ at the local Walmart. The Walmart located in Mebane, NC. It was the “Black Friday” sale that she & her husband had attended on November 26th to get Christmas presents for their children.
The Bartender, I’ll call her Stella for this story, stated that she had gone to Walmart for the midnight sale and that she was planning on coming back for the 5-AM sale a little later. Upon her arrival at the Walmart she soon found out that the lines were already forming for the 5-AM sale. She had her eye on a particular Laptop for her pre-teen daughter. This is where the story gets Hilarious!
As they (Stella and her hubby Beauregard) were in line for the Laptop (Note-Only 32 of the units were available at this particular store) they encountered a plethora of other folks who were also shopping for this particular advertised item. They got in line about 1 AM’ish for the 5-AM sale and that’s when they met Cleatus.
Cleatus my friends is an absolute Genius!!!!! I rank him up there with Einstein, Edison and Da Vinci!
Cleatus was about 3 folks behind Stella & Beauregard in line when Stella heard him say to his wife, “I’ll be right back honey!”
A few minutes later, Cleatus returned to the line, after going over to the “Sporting Goods” section, and he had brought back about 8 of those ‘Folding Camping Chairs’. He said… “I ain’t gonna wait for no 4 hours standing up!!!! Hell, I’m gonna make myself comfortable!”
He then proceeded to open up / set up one of them folding chairs and plopped his ‘Genius Ass’ down and proceeded to doze on off to slumbertown!
He had given one each of the chairs to Stella, Beauregard, and his wife, and passed out the other 4 spares to folks in line. They proceeded to set them up right there in the cereal section of the Walmart Superstore.
At about 5:03 AM on November 26th, the line started to move so Stella, Beauregard, Cleatus & his wife packed the little chairs into their little sleeves and went and got their laptops.
On the way out of the store, each one dropped off the ‘Folding Chair’ back to the display in the Sporting Goods section of the store.
Law’d have mercy I love a Southern Genius!
