    I can't believe it... PHEW!

    Okay so what happenned? Well, I've pre-ordered my Wii and Zelda games, and at EB (This is a New Zealand EB) they gave me a reciept and took my name onto their computer. They said I had to keep the reciept with me for launch day to prove I ordered my Wii.

    They'd also accept verification of ID (drivers lisence etc) and compare it to the name on their system should I lose the reciept, but due to recent events of me moving housing etc, a lot of my ID material is being changed to suit my address etc, so all I have is the reciept.

    I'm 18 and still living at home, eheh... But basically I put my pants in the wash, and someone washed them. Then this morning I wake up and I'm looking around for my wallet (which I remember putting the reciept in). I remembered where my wallet was and was thinking...

    "...Oh F*CK!!!"

    So I ran to the laundry room and rummaged through about 3 feet of sweaty socks and t-shirts (and what's more they weren't even MINE *sudders*), then went outside to look at the clothes drying on the rack. I find my camo pants, and check the pocket to surely enough find my wallet in there, damp.

    "Oh f*ck, oh f*ck, oh f*ck", that's about $600 (NZ dollars remember :p) thrown away into one piece of soggy paper. So I open up the wallet to see what damage is done and it's... gone? What the??

    I walk back into the house scratching my head, ponderring on what obscene event took place to intervien in what could have been my instant loss of $600... Go into my room to finish packing my stuff for work, and see my reciept lying there on the cabinet next to my bed.

    I couldn't stop laughing when I suddenly realised I used it for a bookmark for the book I'm currently reading!! Hahahahaha!

    And I thought I wasn't looking after my reciept... Boy was I wrong.

    Has anything like this happenned to you? An ironic lucky stroke? This might have to go off-topic (as in not Wii related) so uh... this thread might or might not require moving to another forum.

    Ouch, that sucks. :(

    According to xe.com $600 NZ is about $400 USD for both Wii and Z:TP Rofl.

    Well, atleast our DYI equipment is cheaper. ^_^;;

    That's awesome. xD I have a story like that, and it has to do with the wii also.

    So, I go to my local gamestop at 7 AM on pre-order day. I'm waiting, waiting, waiting, and they finally call us in to pre-order at 10 AM. So when I went up to pre-order, I put my hand in my pocket, and noticed I FORGOT MY WALLET. I was panicking, as he asked for my name. I nervously said Larry, as I'm searching all of my pockets, and the floor, and everywhere. Just when I'm about to tell him I don't have my wallet, the gamestop guy says "I have a Larry Becker here, for $93.00 reserve on a Nintendo DS Lite..." My jaw just fell open, and I just stared at him. He looked at me confused, and said "Did you not know you had that?" I was thinking to myself "YES! OMFG I AM THE LUCKIEST GUY IN THE WORLD!!!" I get back to my senses, and pre-order the Wii, Zelda, Red Steel, and a Wii-mote set.

    xD BWAHA!
    Nice, Jenova. Nice. *Nod nod*

    Oh, and I pinned my reciept up on the wall so I don't lose it. xP Of course, since the girl who works there (Damn, just realized she's pretty cute. xD) knows me and my mom pretty well, I wouldn't even need it. *Nod nod*

    That's what I did. I pinned my pre-order on my wall, right next to my computer... Although, it makes me want the Wii even more every time I look at it. >_<

    Lucky :). I'm glad I don't have to worry about things like that because I work at gamestop and they save 4 wii preorders for the staff in each store.

    the whole reciept thing is one of the reasons i hate EB games. at gamecrazy, you have an account and they just ask for your name and phone number to see if you have a pre order or not.
