a new computer store was opening with insane deals(like the SSD or a d-link router for like 25 cent and usually retails for $200~) but...

-the store's opening was "today"(yes, sunday) at 11am.
-getting there would have taken me 1.5 hours(transport wouldn't be that expensive)
-to actually get a decent place in line i would have to show up at least 1-2 hours before
-also, stocks were of course incredibly limited(10 of both the SSD and router)

all in all: eff that even though it hurts to miss out on such deals.

What kind of SSD was it? I'd be leery of a $5 one.
