    well some places are getting bombarded with people calling asking about it. think of how annoying it would be if you got about 5 calls an hour from diffrent people asking about Wii stocks. it would drive you mad wouldnt it? i know it would make me get a little angry ifi keep getting asked that question

    Yeah im trying to get my Wii too and people just keep saying dates and no store locations to match them with, but I just heard Walmart will have some Dec 6 so that seems like the best day to go but im going to check all this week just in case.

    I call 20 stores a day, sometimes more, and when I can sense a little agrivation with these people, I don't let it get to em one bit, because I know I would act the same way if it were me working there. Most employee's also have no idea when shipments are coming either, so just be patient, keep calling early, and you'll get somewhere eventually.

    You have to understand that some people are very how can i say... religious about their jobs. All corporates technically are not allowed to enclose any information on tims it will come in. But of course, most people tell you because they either don't care or don't mind.

    That's the costs of doing business and selling the product. If the companies were intelligent about it, they'd incorporate stock messages into their automated systems for hot items. I worked sales for awhile, and I was always happy to check stock for customers who called.

    If you asked at any Walmart, they genuinely don't know. They don't have any idea what's on the next truck until it comes, then they just unload it and put it where it goes. The whole thing is automated.

    Well they might not know when they get more in so do you want them to lie to you? I have a job and may times people ask when we'll get something in and if I dont know I'll say "I dont know let me ask someone else" if they dont know we tell them a gentral date or say we wont be getting it in for a while. So I know how you fell but just be pacent or go on Ebay.

    I work at a video game store, and I must say it does get quite annoying when every phone call is asking if we have Wii's or any Ps3s in stock. Every 10 seconds the phone rings, and I don't feel like pulling out an explanation as I cannot get anything done with you guys constantly inside my ass cheeks asking every single ****ing time, with the same ****ing person asking the same thing every god damn day.

    I work at Gamecrazy. And as for Inspire, attempt to patronize me is futile. So please, try again.

    Maybe if you're calling an answering service. I know of no one in my store who's job description is to answer phones and give good information. It'd be insanely annoying to have to answer all those calls. There are enough of us on the boards trying to tell you guys when new shipments are coming in, but there is no way I'm going to post numbers for nearly 800 stores. Check out your local _____ on the dates posted on the forum.

    No, see, I wasn't making this personal, I was pointing out something that seemed inconsistent - you work at a video game store and it bugs you that so many people call asking about video games. That's all I did - that's all I meant.

    I can't really say if you're going to get one or not, but out of 50 people on the list? That's insane. Our last shipment of Wii's that we had we're only 7 and they were already allocated by preorders. There's a possibility you may be able to get one, but then again, there's another possibility you might be on the third shipment.


    Edit:

    If I had wanted an emo's opinion, especially from an emo like you (perfect example is your default picture.), I would have either: A.) Cut myself B.) Listen to Dashboard Confessional. C.) Ramble on upon how the 'man' is a twisted bastard. D.) All of the above. So until then, I'd rather have sand in my ass, then be an emo who happens to have loose emotions and make out with the same gender due to "no one completely understands you."
