I've had a very crap day.

I went to my music store today to buy the AG book/cd.

Anyway, i went to the counter to pay for it with my bank card - and it was refused. The reason? Unbeknown to me at the time of purchasing it, i had no money whatsoever left in my account.

So...i never did get to purchase AG.

Probably won't get the chance to now for quite a while.

I'm a student...that is my excuse for going craaaazy with my money.

Anyway...just thought it was worth telling!

Hey....be careful with money!
Do you get a regular allowance or something? And now that you're penny less, how do you plan to sustain yourself till the next refill?
If you have siblings, you could persuade them to hep you purchase the cd as a gift for the parents, and then keep the cd with you. How's that?

I would suggest that if you are short of money then you should probably not waste any on another rehash of a collection of songs you probably already own. Just my opinion!

It depends on what you want to get. If AG is something you really want and know that you'll NEVER regret about it- then go ahead! If you are not sure- think one more time (especially if you have a tendency to regret about the things).
I remember when I bought a book "Killer Queen"- it cost me 80% of my salary (ops...). And I'm still glad that I did so.

The book is nice but i thought you were getting a chance to down-load these videos.Instead you only get to watch them.And for a limited period only.Till Feb 28 2010.A little bit pricey methinks.

Huh.  I got mine free.  Why don't you?

I ordered one on-line and it arrived with a broken Jewel case.  I called their customer service desk and complained.  I didn't have to even send it back.  They're sending me another AG free of charge.  I will keep it sealed and exchange it for another CD once it arrives and end up getting my Absolute Greatest for FREE!!!!!!

The kicker?  Queen gets credit for two album sales in this process.  Best Buy still made a profit out of the deal since their cost is under $4 each.  There's no distributor for Exclusive titles.  Everybody wins!!!

I admit - i screwed up with my money and will be a lot more careful in the future.

I have applied for an emergency loan today from my uni - now all i can do is sit back and wait.

I have now asked for this AG for xmas.

I only really want it for the book!!!
