Game off.

  • Seeing as the money grabbing scumbags are going out of business, I thought I'd share this with you, something I originally posted back in April of last year. Enjoy, init.
  • I shall set the scene. I walk into my local Game store, for no other purpose than to pick up a Play and Charge Kit for my Xbox 360. I head to the counter to pick up said item..
  • Please bear in mind, this all actually happened.
  • Me : Can I get a Play and Charge Kit please?
  • Employee 1 : Um, yeah sure. Where are they?
  • Employee 2 : Uh, are they upstairs?
  • Employee 3 : I'll have a look.
  • Me : They're behind you, in the cabinet.
  • Employee 2: Where?
  • Me : Under the Xbox 360 Controllers...marked 'Play and Charge Kit'. In green.
  • *employee 1 and 2 looks around....*
  • Employee 1 : Oh yeah! Cool, you got the keys?
  • Employee 2 : No we need to call the manager...
  • *employee 1 calls manager, manager arrives looking at me somewhat dissaprovingly*
  • Manager : What seems to the problem, Sir?
  • Me : Um, nothing...these guys needed you to open the cabinet so I could purchase an item.
  • Manager (to Employee 1) : You don't need me, you have your own set of keys right here.
  • Employee 1 : Oh right! Sorry about this mate
  • *JUST OPEN THE FUCKING CABINET!*
  • Me : No problem?
  • Employee 1 : Right, here we go.
  • Employee 3 : They're not upstairs.
  • Employee 1 : I know, I've got one now.
  • Employee 3 : Oh, where were they?
  • Employee 1 : In the cabinet.
  • Employee 3 : This cabinet?
  • Employee 1 : Yes.
  • Employee 3 : Oh. LMFAO! (He didn't actually say that, but he made a face that certainly suggested he was thinking it)
  • Employee 1 : Right, that's £14.99 please mate
  • *hand over card* Me : Thanks
  • Employee 1 : Are you paying by card?
  • Me : ................yes.
  • Employee 1 : Oh, OK.
  • *sigh*
  • Employee 2 : Would you like a bag?
  • Me : No, that's OK. I'll just put it in my lapt....
  • Employee 1 : HAVE YOU GOT A LOYALTY CARD?
  • Me : ....yes, but I don't have it with me.
  • Employee 1 : That's OK, I'll just take your postcode and put the points on there.
  • Me : Cool. It's *says postcode*
  • Employee 1 : ******** Road?
  • Me : Yes
  • Employee 1 : Wow! My nan lives on that road
  • Me : Oh..cool. *sighhhh*
  • Employee 2 : There you go mate. *hands over item. in a bag*.
  • Me : Thanks.
  • Now, before I get a chance the get the fuck out of there, a very nice lady comes up around me to go to Employee 2's till to purchase a Wii with a Wii Fit Plus Bundle in a big black box, and she asks the employees a question...
  • Nice lady : Does the Wii play DVD's?
  • Employee 1 : Um......
  • Employee 2 : Does the Wii play DVD's?
  • Employee 3 : The Wii? I don't know. I've never tried. I use my DVD player.
  • Employee 2 *to ME* : Does the Wii play DVD's?
  • Me : Um, no. No it doesn't.
  • Nice lady : Thank you!! Wow, you should work here.
  • *employees snigger to themselves*
  • And with that, I was gone. The moral of the story is, don't go to Game in Taunton if you want to find out anything about anything. And quickly. The pure lack of product knowledge was genuinely outstanding, especially on a subject many people, similar to the 'Nice Lady' are still learning about. The fact they turned to a customer to find out a piece of product information that should have been absolutely bloody instilled into their brain is ridiculous.
  • Anyway, I felt I had to share.
  • Peace and love. R
