NW Ohio, you suck

Actually, I quite like northwest Ohio. But sometimes it can really piss a girl off. I’d put it on notice, but then we’d probably get another week of rain.

About a week and a half ago, I decided that I needed the June/July issue of “Interview” magazine, possibly for the Hugh Laurie interview, but I won’t confirm either way. I called all over town, called some stores in Toledo, and they all claimed to not have the damn thing. So after cursing them all, I ordered it off Amazon for way too much money. I finally got it Thursday, and rejoiced.

I’m just amazed that this magazine is nowhere to be found around here (allegedly). Well, except for the one from 2003 that one of the stores had. Or was it 2005? Either way, not what I was looking for.

I’ll tell you what though, any freaking homemaker rag you could possibly want can be found here.

So, then I got it into my head that I absolutely needed to see “Sense and Sensibility.” I called Best Buy, and got no answer, so I called again and got someone on the phone. I said, “I was wondering if you have ‘Sense and Sensibility.'”

He said, “Are those comedies?”

And I said, “Ah, NO, I don’t think so.” I’m not sure if I managed to mask my disgust or not.

He claimed to check and then told me, “We don’t have either of those.”

I really wanted to say, “Are you sure, cause it’s just one movie and I don’t think you really understand what you’re looking for.” Instead I just thanked him and hung up.

Then after talking to Kim, I decided to call back and double check, and wouldn’t you know, I got the same genius. I told him I just wanted to make sure that he understood what I’d been looking for, that “Sense and Sensibility” is just ONE movie, and he said that he knew that, but didn’t see anything like that when he looked. I should have asked how exactly he looked for it, but again I just hung up.

Is it just me? Is it really not that big a deal that people don’t know this movie? I also wanted to ask the guy if he’d ever heard of “Pride and Prejudice” and then “Dumb and Dumber” and see which he was familiar with. I was just too befuddled to go into bitch mode.

So again I ask, is it just me?
