The day before we received a call from our son. He does the sound at fitter and -- on the road a lot. His Brooklyn apartment -- -- it's hard to control so while mom was out he took charge of his twin sons. It was warm in the apartment. And so my son was lying on the -- would no shirt on.

I would doubt Tierra I mean that tops in the Dennis the field you mean there's other Dennis from where's -- from. I don't know it doesn't say in the store hours from but obviously he likes hot stuff. I would take it will be back with more would be in company news radio 930 WB yeah. And have those fancy things I used to play with a broomstick. I'd pretend it's -- present at a Bronx there was a horse. Really dead. And then went out when the broomstick stopped being the horse it became the rifle. -- I like westerns 1000 K okay so I'd be riding. The trouble is I was eighteen at the time but I I orbit riding a broomstick like off Morris. And then I would I would get off the horse and lift the broomstick up and it was a rifle. Think and you know fancy electronic toys. And keep score and play against other people and other countries as wrote I wrote I wrote my mother's bronze that scene for us -- -- either her hockey stick or they were soared. Well that's true hockey was not billion where I grew up in Massachusetts so we're mainly football so I didn't have any hockey references so ardea. Yeah you'd watched the these sort Plato and I was a like watching them -- -- you know this gonna. Action not the big heavy soared in about the battles all right but the one like this. And I I used to book heart disease and know the -- -- don't know exactly but that was fun and then you had your imagination. The my mother said that when I was growing up that thing I like the best word pots and pans I pretended I was a cook. I was cooking for everybody imaginary vote. And so I had to stop because I was getting imaginary fat -- Smoker imaginary calories I don't he had no special place timer electronic gizmos that's what we've said. And then we went out and play and so we are exhausted. It and that's that that's the way it is not quite the same things -- changed clothes now they have an imaginary or they have a virtual -- Where you can you know point and click that your play -- and then you get scores and of course at the end of the glee season neutral virtual -- the -- exactly a tag Jane actually that sounds like a -- -- did you did you like Dick did you Dick and Jane books. I guess we did yeah -- I just saw them on line for some reason. Remember when they re issued Dick -- books here I am -- an adult. I went I went to Barnes & Noble was -- several years ago and bought a whole set. As I loved Dick and Jane when I was a kid Dick and Jane spot pony and -- the whole crowd was there. And that they would. It was fun just kind of going with your imagination into the book. And so I think a reading is great for me it really is nothing beats that mice on enjoys it means just at midnight so that's a good sign that is a good sign the only problem is I hope he doesn't. Take too much Jeff do you Tony does he hold the book out an arm's length in front of them. Angel complain about yeah.

They did an excellent job on installing the very nice very professional. But there's a wedge about -- four wide. Of a different rug. And it's on the entrance to be employee entrance did you say yes I did. How why do you think they ran out -- -- and I think is designed that way because also the same strip goal in two. The Euro sales offices also that's purposeful it was like decorative. Because it's obviously -- we have this expands -- And imagine what it costs is big expanse of -- everywhere beautiful very nice and then right now -- our entrance. Is about a foot it's almost like -- order reminded me of the bricks at the at the brickyard and Indy 500 where they have some of the original bricks. Or maybe the circle at -- and out of -- are at the used to be in Reiman from the -- auditorium. Where it where they do the big country music shows every Saturday night. -- grand Ole opry they have a round circle of the original Reiman stage so you're standing on the same place where Hank Williams stood. I mean that that's good stuff now it doesn't get better. But I thought maybe it was that night and had some kind of important as the a reference to a but it didn't know I noticed yesterday when I had to go through some different doors right now what we come back -- through Jim Morrison. No I missed him at all realized that I got to get all the doors. I'd now when we come back we're gonna talk about some things and I'm so glad that I wandered down to the front office every once in awhile and get the ladies in the front office's opinion.

Mortgage company has seen the video of the people shuttling up the Ralph. That cannot be an easy job. Because you have to shovel the snow I have to get the snow off the seats.

They've got a modern games and they're doing it because there's a game Sunday is not going to it's going to be blacked out -- TV. Playing Miami. And that's good when Miami comes up here in December but -- the tough jobs. And apparently they shovels snow on -- like this slide. And it goes from the top down I was wondering where that snow. A -- it some that they it is -- to being easier Winnie Lakewood flame thrower. I mean I guess would be prohibitively expensive especially for the months that you used. I guess -- -- electric electricity intimacy it's always fun at a crowd a crowd doesn't yell loud enough is -- -- that'll do it the class project he's. So I guess in teams of apartment like fifty people and they go -- they just do sections at a time. But you know it you know because I always root of things. I root for bad things are for the big time twirled drop in on talking about I've ever for the balloons to salute as they're tether and fly often -- outer space. I'm kinda hoping them like on Saturday night or maybe even Sunday morning it. Will be cool. Because then let's see what kind of a you know how people are always bragging that they -- rubles. Meant.

Shopper baiting strategies. Severe being baited to move or procrastinators. Deal hunters and people who just want a few extra stocking stoppers are some of the things that they're doing. Retailers are doing they're going social in their countdown warnings. Companies are using social media to remind customers. That Christmas is looming and -- offered a suggestion.

Also targeting procrastinators. A JC Penney today launches a man in panic team that. A desperate man which could be any of us darts or a storm. As a choir sings lyrics such as appoint him to the jewelry so he won't buy a vacuum. And as as kind of funny. You know all that the real desperate ones are on Christmas Eve afternoon. There at the drugstore. And get it -- there are Rite Aid getting anything that looks like a gift doesn't mean that it. These -- the worst examples. Like I changed it -- citizen. And it. And Heidi I get this I get this folding chair for you I know you like it. And that was -- -- -- -- a barbecue grows like Gordon I couldn't pass that up as a written all over it. Are. Offering free shipping now this is good. Many retailers including JC Penney have embraced today as free shipping day no minimum water delivery by Christmas in his guarantee. Free shipping today dot com has a list of participating merchants. And for those of you will catch up enough. They're also extending store hours. When is the last time you heard somebody say and think about this. You know I was excited I wanted to go Christmas shopping and you. Lose nobody says that nobody. But the Macy's Nordstrom target and Toys 'R' Us have longer hours now. Or they're coming -- malls Macy's stores already have extended hours 37 stores will be open round the clock. Friday through 6 o'clock Christmas -- of Toys 'R' Us will open for 87 straight hours from 6 AM Saturday to -- vehement residency. -- as an example -- what they're doing to try to entice you in the store but once you get into the store. Things -- happening that didn't used to happen in stores and this is why we wanna talk about this today. You know how when you go to a flea market or garage sale. Somebody. You might have something mark ten dollars and they'll give you four dollars for it and -- with mark report knows -- there give you dollar. That's mark four quarter they'll say we take seventeen cents toward a bargaining negotiating. I didn't know you could do this but apparently now it's a growing trend you can go into full fledged department stores like I just mentioned. And negotiate. The price. I didn't think that could be done but it can. And when I tell you what the women in the front office said about other little tips the of those shopping you gotta find it -- -- I hope you'll find interest and Oklahoma. Will be back after this I never I never put on Leo I wish list. I'm grateful for whatever I guess whatever again if I like it I'll use it until it falls apartment by don't know thank you very much employment laws. I'm hoping against them seven round magazines this year for Christmas -- and a does that but seeing if they don't make seven rom magazines. Maybe I won't get that. But it's and a really cared knowing -- in New York under harsh. Gun laws that maybe it'll go the extra mile to have the elves make up a few in rounds are about so that's about Christmas shopping. I don't shop unless I have to so far -- Christmas -- a week away. And I guess what. I've had one gift bought the one the wouldn't -- in the car that's that's how you're on a roll -- and have and it wouldn't -- are okay. I hope that when I deliver this gift. It's not raining or snowing or freezing -- because I'm gonna put up through the sun because it's tall and cannot be tipped. -- can't Tippett sideways -- did you decide it would be easy style doesn't fit in my truck. I have to put up through the sunroof so I don't I don't rule in the -- But anyway some are happening in retail was not aware of because I'm not a big shopper. Among the things that you can do now is you can go up price. That day you know a full fledged retailer. A department store. -- here in the -- department starting this is sweater and it's it's forty dollars to make a numbers. -- arguments with -- -- and you know mentioning him I. Always picking apart you know. But we'll just say it's four dollars is -- forty ago. Days ago OK it's. Like. I'll take him forty dollars weighs in on. Now. If you don't pay forty dollars for it could say I'm. Well that's that I sweater I think I might want him to go 35. You know army. And -- -- -- who. Is of the Clarkson never have any authority themselves to do anything. They always at the -- with the boss object. I'll have to adjust -- -- -- And -- 35 will be fine so I'm what you had to go with the department store I know you -- and at flea markets. I knew you didn't want sales where people just won't buy anything mostly to national. I've seen people say it's marked a quarter would you take seventeen cents or I mean they have to feel that -- He'd do big deal you know but I didn't know he could do it at a department stores and apparently now in order to compete with -- each other. They're doing that I have an article here by Hilary stout. Does that name maker look fat hook up. Hilary stout as a matter of fact I wonder bills getting our new and so what do you think. You'd be funny. It probably wouldn't be too funny to Hillary what is bill for Christmas that are blue dress what -- your bank and he's as I picked it up on the on the you. At the use this story I don't know who Zedillo's Qaeda deal where. Okay I've had good a back porch converted into an Oval Office some clean. The driver here was ever in its -- contract. And is beyond rude. Joni I'm disgusted review come on argument showdown Tony you out of I was -- dragged out of will be Mindy. Seacrest is a guy Chris that grass -- the pyro. -- Hilary -- from the New York Times. So she's must via pretty prominent writer should write for the times. Pay no attention to that price tag or even -- mark down this year some shoppers are quietly taking the art of bargaining. Op yeah escalator to the flowers selling casual air and cover than he leather boots. Building on the haggling skills they acquired in the past few years getting big box or deals on TVs and light. Are more than increasing sophisticated. Price tracking tools. You know they can do that I was talking to an employee here who remain nameless. And there are apps that you put on euros on your phone. If it's say if it's a an item that has a number on you know I forgot what they call those numbers -- code numbers okay. You can you can scan and find out what the prices are on that same item at other stores. So let's say you're looking at that forty dollar sweater and that it has that number on an okay. So you you used the -- find out you can get -- for a thirty dollars at the store right drama right on the walkway there. So people using those on their Smartphones and other devices consumers have become bolder. And they now -- that they have the upper hand during a tough season for retailers. I didn't know it was officially called a tough season yet we got a week ago on an. But that's what they -- here recognizing the new reality some retailers. Desperate for sales and customer loyalty. Have begun training their employees in the art of bargaining with customers. Last month best buy. Invited customers to bargain -- announced that it would match the price of any competitor this holiday season if customers show proof of the lower price. So usually that's in some. -- -- It's either newspaper. Or coupon something like that you show that and a lot of them matchup. It poison now being coached to recognize that this is important. It's -- profiling. We all complain about profiling goalie -- airport. Why quietly searching grandma why they -- grandma down because they don't wanna be a -- goes up profiling yeah program -- doesn't look like a terrorist so let's pat her down so though nowhere just doing this randomly. Okay employees are now being coached to recognize when a consumer needs to negotiate. About that so they get that look. See that back Clark in Switzerland or something didn't recognize Oprah when she won -- -- 38000 dollar handbag. But had he looked in her high -- I'm sure Oprah didn't have the all if only I could afford that had -- -- bubble -- -- we recognize. That she was -- consumer ready double ID and then her credit card is all I don't know unlimited. You would have done a better job. Yeah they have to recognize what a consumer needs to negotiate and to spot the consumer getting ready to walk out the door of this is that kiss of death. When somebody walks out the door caused very seldom they come back okay varies unfortunately it doesn't work -- -- with. Very seldom do they come back. So we're talking about the fact. Do you have a goal. When -- buying Christmas gifts now at the major department stores I don't know anybody who has so far but we've got more about this -- more about our stories regarding coupons. All happening on -- 930 Libya.
