    Gamestop Manager Won't Sell Games To Stupid Kids

    A Gamestop store in South Dallas is breaking corporate policy by refusing to sell games to schoolkids who can't prove they're doing well at school. Managed by Brandon Scott, he's got a store rule that unless an adult can verify that a child is getting good grades at school he won't sell a game to them. Any game. Even Pony Friends.

    I'm probably going to get in trouble for this, but to me it's worth it, because the kids understand that somebody cares.
    Brandon, your heart's in the right place, but the kids won't think somebody cares. They'll think you're being a total ass. Especially if they're not bright kids , and all they want to do is buy a videogame from your videogame store.

    I could see why he is doing this, but I don't agree with him. I'm sure he is making a lot of kids made.

    Actually, thats an awesome idea. I'd do it. Kids are idiots these days because their parents let them slack off in school.

    EDIT: Of course he's making kids mad! But since when do kids know what's best for them?

    The parents should set limits on their kids video game time if it is cutting into their grades, not a video game store owner.

    LoL, omg he's could get sued HUGE!
    Its the law that if you sell a product to someone then you dont sell it to another person that is against the law, due to discrimination, technically he's saying that smart kids are better kids, and they should get to play games. That is how the court would see it. Even if we all know he's trying to make parents see that kids need to do better in school he could get sued huge.

    Whether you agree with what he's doing or not, it's illegal. There's no law saying drop-outs can't have fun. Unless the game is M-rated, he HAS to sell to whoever has the money. No different than refusing to sell to minorities, and just as illegal.

    Actually I'm pretty sure this case is different considering it's his store and his products and or games that he's selling. If the kids want they can purchase the game at another store if their desperate. As for this person I say good for him. One day or another kids have to realize that there is more to life than just video games. Therefore I respect this guy.
