    Stories of luck

    I got a Wii about a month ago but was in GameCrazy today trading-in a used GC game for an Xbox one.
    These two teenage boys are in there and ask some questions. One of them throws out "you got any Wii's?". I'm thinking, yea right, I've said that 50 times only to be rejected and the same will happen to you.
    But the clerk says "yes we do". So of course both of the kids get all excited and one asks the guy if he can save one for him. Nope! For a laugh I said "I'd like to buy all of your Wii's, please."
    Turns out they had ONE that they had saved for a few days while trying to get ahold of 2 people that were on their waiting list. The store decided to sell it after failed attempts to contact them so it had been sitting behind the couter all day waiting for someone to pop the question.
    The kid got on his cell and his mom zoomed up about 5 minutes later (guess she was at Target across the parking lot).
    I felt good for the boys and how lucky they were that someone else (even me) didn't hear the clerk say "Wii" and snatch it up.
    Brings a tear to your eye, huh? Anyone else have a heart-warming story?

    Not really good luck or heartwarming but...

    On the morning of launch, 7th of December, after Mum dropped me off at school, I asked her to pop over to K-Mart just to check if they had any Wiis. I knew it was a long shot as they were only getting 12 in for launch.
    When I get home I see a Wii box on the table. After my generic celebrations for about 5min I asked Mum how she got it. She just said, I walked into K-Mart, went to the home entertainment section and asked for a Wii. According to Mum, they were all hush hush about it and whispered, "There out the back, I'll just nip out and get one for you."
    Also everywhere in the town where I live was selling there Wii's for $388. I don't know why but it was $11 below R.R.P.

    Anyway, there's my story.
