We all know how people love to bitch about Gamestop and their secksy phone lady telling me that my games are gonna be in in a few days.
In my past though, I have had a terrible experience with Gamestop involving my video gaming habit, money, and broken condoms.
It all started in High School..my Junior year, I would like to say, 2004. In my town we only had a Software Etc. and they had just built a Gamestop right next to where I work, like right across the parking lot. I remember when it opened they had a guy in a Mario costume walk up and down one of the busiest streets here..but thats besides the point.
I had never really went to Software much considering it was in the mall and I didn't like going in there, and I still don't, because the people that work there are ignorant and 4 out of 5 times they have not the slightest clue what they are talking about. Well, when GS opened, I remember I had just gotten paid and I cashed my meager paycheck and spent it all like it was a hooker buffet.
Turns out, all of these used games I had just purchased weren't so great, and that is my fault for not doing the research before hand..and I didn't know what I wanted to do with them. This was when I found out that I could sell them back to them..at slightly lower price, of course.
And so this is how my year long stint of buying games, beating them, then selling them back to buy new games began. Say I spent 50 bucks on a new game, and I sold it back no more than a week and a half later for 20 bucks..thats a 30 dollar game rental. I wish somebody would've slapped me and told me how f'ing dumb I was.
My friends don't let me live it down, and rightfully so, cause it was a horrible thing. Granted, I did play alotta decent games, but I paid out the ass for it all.
The only time I even go to Gamestop anymore is to reserve games and, the occasional 'I can't find this game anywhere else' thing.
And that is why when you work at McDonalds when your in High School, you don't play with knives, syringes, or Gamestops. It's bad for your health.
