    Dumb people entertain me.

    OK,
    There's a kid in my graphic arts class who for some reason was under the impression that he'd be able to buy a PS3 or Wii on launch day with his "hook-ups". Anyway, the duder called his "hook-up" yesterday to confirm that he had a system reserved for him. The hook-up ended up being an EB store manager, but the questionable hook-up ended up being that he could get him a job, and therefore reserve himself a Wii/PS3 as an employee. The kid was kinda bummed by it, but still wanted to ensure he'd get a unit. So, he signed up and started working.... yesterday. He showed up to class completely pissed, being that nobody had told him that preorders took place for about 15 minutes three weeks ago. And here's the thing that really hit me:

    "Well, I can always tell someone that their unit arrived broken and to come back in a couple weeks to pick up another." I hope this kind of crap doesn't really happen, but with all the Nintendo and Sony reps monitoring distribution, I doubt that any shady employees will try and succeed with such a scheme.

    If the manager's got the reputation that I hear he has, this kid's totally going to get fired. Dumb people entertain me.

    Seriously, everybody at my school barely knows anything about the Wii, let alone about the stock.
    And they all say , yeah I'm getting a Wii on the first day that comes out, and some thought that it already came out .
    They're pathetic

    Thats pretty bad but its even worse when employees don;t know sh*t.

    I called TRU yesterday to ask about midnight launching because i heard rumors that some were, and so i ask for the game dept. The customer service woman says "well maybe I can help you." So i say "i have a preorder for the wii and was wondering when the earliest i can pick it up sunday is."

    and she says...."I thought it came out last sunday?"


    "...No. It comes out the 19th..."

    so i would think all of the employees....at least of the game dept and the customer service should know exactly when major things like that are hitting the stores.

    I know what you mean, it's like when ppl say that they're going to see "M I 3" (or any huge movie) on the 1st day it comes out...while being totally oblivious to the fact that tickets have been bought out for the next 3 days after its premiere. I'm so pissed at ppl who are so spoiled or so dumb that they think they're going to get anything they want, when they want it.

    Dumb ppl piss me off, but they do entertain me too
