Shocker: Some GameStop locations use bathrooms as storage photo



[Update: It looks like this video has been pulled from YouTube with the quickness. But trust me, it was shocking. Info below.]
 
Depending on your level of "germophobia," you may want to look away from the above video. What you're seeing is "spy cam" footage of the inside of a GameStop employee restoom, and yes, it looks like it's where they store some of their consoles. 
 
Disgusting? Maybe. Depends on how much faith you put in the ability of a GameStop employee to not miss the bowl, I suppose. Here's a news flash, though -- an endless warehouse does not lie beyond the metal door that sits at the back of most retail stores, GameStops included. Considering the number of SKUs being dumped onto retail, space for storing inventory is a precious commodity. And have you seen the size of the box that Guitar Hero World Tour comes in? 
 
Engadget writes: "On a serious note, we're telling ourselves that there's just no way this happens in even a meaningful amount of GameStop locations." Well, as someone who worked for the specialty retailer at a number of locations for more years than I'd like to admit, this is more common than you'd like to think. 
 
So is something like this a deal breaker? I mean, between the fact that they sell people used games as new (arguably not the case) and won't leave you alone about their discount card, will you never step foot inside a GameStop again?
