Damn Best Buy and Ticketmaster!!! I made every effort to get the coveted Police concert tickets, but alas – I was foiled.
First, the Best Buy presale was only for $225 tickets. Fuck that!
Then, today – I logged on to Ticketmaster at precisely 9:59am. I rammed my fingers in the keys and magically got 4 seats (the $50 variety, thank you very much) and couldn’t believe my luck. I went on to check out, barely noticing the $20 parking they had automatically added to my bill.
Well, that’s where I really got screwed.
They had ran out of parking, pushed me back to the previous screen, and then told me my allotted time to decide if I wanted the tickets was up… AND KICKED ME OUT OF LINE.
In those 3 minutes, every single ticket in the entire Pepsi Center was sold out.
