So I frequent this blog that posts retail horror stories, and I figured, hey, why not share the awesome. Here’s a story I saw a few days ago by a GameStop clerk (source).
I manage a video game store. Note: video games. About 3pm, this woman walked in and bee-lined it for the counter.
Her: Do you sell anime?
Moi: No, I’m sorry. We stopped carrying DVDs about six months ago.
Her: You used to have a lot of anime.
Moi: I know…we just ran out of room. Our store is very small. But, there’s a movie store near Sears that has a lot of used anime. You might have luck there.
So she nodded, and wandered off to peruse my PS2 section. I went back to checking in shipment, piece by agonizing piece. About five minutes later, I’m startled by a loud “THUD!” The woman had collected about 15 display game cases from my shelves, stacked them in her arms, and slammed them on my counter.
Her: You don’t carry anime, huh?!
Her: Well I see a lot of anime right here!
Her: Whatever you say, lady! You’re not getting any of my business!
At that point, I watched her throw her nose in the air, ‘hmph’ loudly, and flutter out of my store like a ruffled chicken.
Don’t ask me. I have no fucking idea.
