What's the weirdest thing you've ever seen in a GameStop store? Any cringe/horror stories?
I've been there a bunch of times and haven't seen anything half as weird as some of the stuff people have described on /v/, Just stupid little kids being stupid and the occasional neckbeard who decides the perfect time to strike a conversation with one of the employees is when there's a line of 20 people behind him. It's kind of disappointing really.
The worst thing my friend and I saw was a very clichéd conversation between an employer and customer about how "brilliant" BioShock infinite was.
It was the same garbage spewed online; how it "tackles deep social issues" and such nonsense.
Whenever I go buy one of my chinese panty roleplaying games the store just happens to have at least one weeb who will come and strike a conversation with me if they see my purchase. The problem isn't that they want to talk with me so much as the fact that they don't know how to string words together to form coherent sentences.
I cannot abide by people who don't practice personal hygiene. Animals clean themselves more often than neckbeards.
I take a shower and shave every single solitary day, even when I do nothing but sit on my ass and shitpost on 4chan and masturbate to cartoons.
He had one of those names that sounds like another word. Like "Prentiss" but not quite spelled or pronounced that way. He was really trying to sell me on the idea of buying the games years in advance and playing them as soon as possible on the night they're first released.
Poor guy thought I was playing New Vegas because of a mental illness and not because, y'know, a near life-time of Falling into and out of these games.
I struggle with depression. I have a hard time getting out of bed most days. I haven't shaved in ~ 2 months.
I'll be fucked if I don't at least have a shower, brush my hair and put on some deodorant before I go outside though. Clean clothes? Depends on if I've managed to get laundry done, I usually try to avoid anything that's obviously dirty or smelly though. Pants are something that can be multiple times, shirts not so much usually.
>not shaving every day
Thanks for reminding me, it's been a while since I last got a haricut. I'll have to check and see if the barber is open today.
Feels nice when you're fresh and clean and start playing a video game. It's like
>yes, everything is fine and well in the world today
This is why personal hygiene and good diets and good sleep schedules are EXTRA important for NEETs. You have to do everything you can to promote good mental health by yourself, because you can't rely on anybody else.
I pick my clothes up off the floor, give them a good sniff, and either put them on or throw them back on the ground. That's how I decide it they're clean enough to wear. This includes underwear. I once picked up some of my brother's by accident. So I now know our crotches smell significantly different.
I often forego showering or washing my hair, assuming that if I put enough gel on then it'll be indistinguishable from grease.
>that girl reminds me of Anthony Burch's sister
>I just remembered I will NEVER be Anthony Burch
>The problem isn't that they want to talk with me so much as the fact that they don't know how to string words together to form coherent sentences.
This is why I don't make small talk with strangers, I can't speak.
>going to the barber
>not cutting your hair
Nothing really since I don't shop there much. Got an ok story from Smash Midnight Release though.

In a focus on semantics you failed to actually answer the underlying question. I would have given you a 9.25 out of 10.

It's obvious what the question was implying anon. Yes, put in that it's a Thunderstone, not a Lightning stone, but also actually add why pikachu rejected it (because he's a pussy bitch who doesn't want to be a Raichu because he sucks).

My beard is well groomed beast and truly a thing of beauty.
As long as you shower everyday, or at least before you leave the house, brush your teeth, etc grow all you hair our and plait your armpit into your beard for all I care.

i'm so happy i don't work there anymore
Well, once the women at the counter refused to give me the item i pre-ordered because my girlfriend at the time let me infront of her in the waiting line
Not really cringeworthy but meh my life isn't that exciting
Actually no sorry i remember going in there one day and a child no way over 10 years old was crying because he couldn't get an MA +15 game, was screaming and knocked over one of the game stands and they got asked to leave the store, the mum comes back in about 2 minutes later and buys it for him
All i did was hop out of line and let my girlfriend order the two games that we were getting regardless of who ordered it. It was 12:30 there was no energy left in me to argue with this bitch
Well, back at the Smash midnight release there was a guy dressed in a Mario costume. He used this as an excuse to talk in a shitty Mario voice all night and he WOULDN'T STOP TALKING. Just blabbering about the most inane shit all night. He also hovered around my friends and I saying nothing while we were playing a couple matches of the 3DS version, which creeped us the fuck out.
Then later when we all lined up, he got his copy and barrelled out of GameStop laughing maniacally and SCREAMING to all the people in line about how we were suckers because he got the game first, as he rode his bike off into the pouring rain.
...Just a hunch, but I think that guy was legitimately autistic.
I only shower every three or four days, and the only way you can tell is how greasy my hair is. I never stink because I don't do anything that would cause me to get dirty or sweaty.
I don't understand how there are people that manage to smell awful all the time.

Jesus Christ, even their staff are autists.
I only heard him running out at first, those column things at the plaza were blocking him and I was towards the back of the line
He was like...filming us with his phone or something. I was trying not to look. Did see him riding away into the night though. He was a character, all right.
Just a heads up: you smell awful to other people and they simply don't tell you. Seriously. I know you've convinced yourself and that this post won't change your mind, but it is the truth.
I hate faggots like you. You have probably spent to much time in the /v/ cringe threads that you think anyone doing anything slightly out of the ordinary are autists and not just doing it for fun.
>live with gf
>some days she wont shower because, "huur muh hair"
Hey, I was being nice because I liked her. She actually spaghetti'd everywhere, if she'd said "Ach, it's just a bit of fun" I'd have agreed and congratulated on the effectiveness of the costume.
Instead, she started telling me where to buy all this shit and telling me all about the different t-shirts she owned that featured Pikachu.
You would have noped the fuck out of there as well.
>All the single furries
They're all single.
there's no way thats real
That really depends on his weight and how much he's actually moving around, as well as the temperature.
You're most likely right, but there's a slight chance he's not just bullshitting. I can go two days without showering before people notice depending on what I did on the first day.
>girlfriend is always complementing my scent
I have this too but it's kinda creepy. If we are sitting down somewhere in public and she hugs me she will bury her head into my chest past my jacket/whatever I am wearing because she likes my smell so much. It's cute to me but I imagine it looks creepy as fuck to other people.
However I actually shower everyday unlike you so maybe it is because I actually smell clean and stuff unlike so many people.
Shes a keeper, anon, marry that bitch and lock it down
I don't really have many special GS stories. But whenever i go into mine i cringe heavily. The 3 most dudebro faggots work there and always suggest GTA 5 and COD. No i mean outside of those 2 games literally those 2 games if you mention anything else you're excited for they draw a blank.
GS is easily the least professional place on the planet atleast in my opinion or from my experience. Is it that hard to hire people with even basic AAA product knowledge? Also they were still playing the season 1 trailer for The Wolf Among Us in my GS which is pretty cringe for me.
Worst I ran into was a former coworker of mine who didn't stop talking until I told him I was there with my friends and that the day he quit was the second happiest day of my life, and the only time I was ever happier was twenty minutes before he showed up that day and he should stop fucking ruining it.
And he still didn't stop talking to me like I was his fucking friend.
Fuck you, Derrick, I know you come here you fat autistic non-bathing fuck.
Yeah cause FUCK WOMEN am i right guys?
They're all BITCHES and WHORES just like Adachi said right?
haha Virgin 4 life! Who needs women when i have my waifu! They'll never leave me!

Yeah, pretty much. Besides, I'd rather not have to worry about the actions of another person affecting my own life so intimately.
I want my walls painted a certain color, if you think otherwise, then fuck you get out of my house. Tends to not allow for stable relationships.

Can confirm. The best part is when you walk into the store and it almost feels as if the air has gotten thicker and warmer because of how strong the smell is. Christ I hate those fuckers so much. It is not hard to jump in the shower once a day or heck once every 2 days.
I mean I am not the best looking guy around but women do take notice if you look clean/smell good. It's not fucking rocket science.
Damn man with that attitude then I don't know what to tell you.
It does suck having to worry about the actions of someone else but at the same time that's also the beauty of it. Having to depend on someone you love.
Coming home to someone you love, spending time with them, making love and all that shit is worth it in the long run.

Boil her ass to disinfect it. Probably slather some antibacterial on it too. Get it all nice and slick and shiny with the stuff. Just keep rubbing it on. Everywhere.
He touched her tits, too, yeah?
I love my dog but he doesn't bitch at me to leave the seat down for him so he doesn't fall into the toilet when he needs to drink.
And my 20 POUNDS OF PUSSY AND ASS parked next to my bed is good for the rest of what you said.
Nah dude that's a stereotypical way of viewing how girls are. In the 8 years i've been with my girlfriend she's never bitched at me about the seat.
And we've lived together for about 6
I once worked at Gamestop and I sold a kid Sonic '06. I tried to recommend him any other sonic game but he refused and I had to sell it to him. I still feel bad to this day.
In the two weeks I was with my last girlfriend she did it five times.
one here is a bigger one with used movies and shit
I'm pretty sure they're so hard up they'll sell anything used, pretty soon all Gamestops will have a used car lot that you have to walk through in order to get into the store
>shower if you know you're going to see other people
So much this. To be honest I used to not care as much as I did but then I started to come across situations of people who would talk about people behind their backs because they smelled like shit.
People DO notice if you haven't showered for 2 days even if they haven't said it.
People DO notice if you haven't washed your clothes in ages. Even if your clothes are not obviously smelly.
Get clean. Get Good. Get Laid.
Women are fucking disgusting.
At least gay guys clean out their assholes.
I've seen some nasty fucking vaginas in my day. The worst part is they don't even realize it.
>Hey girl, how often do you douche?
Get your shit together girls.
>Go into Gamestop
>Look at some games on the wall
>Have to tilt my head to read the bottom ones
>No big deal
>Decide to look at different section
>Fat woman waddles into store
>Has lots of anime related clothes on
>She goes to the section I was at
>Lays down on the ground and starts reading the game titles
>People walk around her like its a normal thing to do
The reason I stopped going to Gamestop is because of their corporate policies forcing the staff to peddle shit to me like it's a Mexican flea market. I just want to buy what I went in there for. I don't want to answer the same 7 questions about preordering or signing up for their gaming club every single transaction.
>What's the weirdest thing you've ever seen in a GameStop store?
On black friday a nigger tried to sell his xbox 360 with a gaping hole on the top. You could literally see the disk inside of it. My buddy also told me the controller was piss yellow in color, originally white. Regret not photographing it.
>I've seen some nasty fucking vaginas in my day
I am glad I am not you m8. I enjoy eating pussy almost as much as I enjoy receiving oral and it would legitimately disappoint me if I couldn't because of a nasty ass vag.
People should not have kids over 35, it significantly increases the likelihood of autism, and is the number one cause for it. I hate when parents want to keep an autistic child. It is very selfish and they don't respect other people who have to deal with them, and society at large who has to pay for them.
>not slavsquatting next to them
I've learned that your FLGS is the easiest place to make friends with the employees and owner. All you have to do is follow two simple rules:
1) Practice good hygiene.
2) Understand that they're not paid to have conversations with you about your hobbies.
Here's a story.
A buddy of mine got fired from there recently.
He was working behind the desk, black guy comes in and asks to see a PS4 acting like he was going to buy it.
My buddy shows it to him, the guy thinks he's slick and grabs the box and dashes to the front door.
My buddy being fast as fuck jumps from behind the counter (I shit you not) and tackles the black guy inches from the door to the ground and holds him there while a customer calls the cops.
While the cops take their time, the black guy clutches the damn ps4 box kicking the shit out of my buddy.
Anyway cops come, take the guy.
Later on the manager fired my buddy, reason being since he technically "never left the store with the ps4" it wasn't theft so in order to avoid drama my friend was fired.

Pretty much confirmed for me that Sonic fans are nothing but autistic and socially awkward to the point the cringing just hurts. Other than that, no complaints. Had a few niggers call us racist because we needed ID from them for Advanced Warfare. And stupid broads who can't speak English.
she's cute in the first pic
why does /v/ hate her again? haven't been here in a couple weeks, I think I missed it. Is she turning him into an SJW like Egoraptor and Pissed-off Pedro?
I worked at a Gamestop during and right after it was still called Funcoland.

I work there.
I used to work in a black area and it was great. store smelled good, niggas bought madden call of duty and nba, the nerdy weeby black people didn't smell like ass and bought their japanland bullshit and fightan gaems.
the occasional white customers weren't entitled, it was good times.
I got promoted so now i work in this mostly white store and i swear to god i don't know what it is about you /v/ fucks, but every time you come into my god damn store, you act like no one who works there knows anything about games or has never played an obscure title. and what's worse is you hold up every line with your autismal questions about everything you buy.
and you ALL. SMELL. LIKE. SHIT.
5 minutes, people. take a fucking shower.
and i know it's you because you all make some random mention of 4chan when you come in.
I agree completely. Autistic people are complete failures to society. Not trying to be edgy or anything but a majority of them are useless human beings.
There are some that are like prodigies. I knew a guy who's brother was autistic but was godly at any video game and was taking Calculus AB in freshman year.
He's an engineer now but hes autistic.
Then there's the autists like Chris Chan or whatever that are complete failures and amount to nothing.
Looks more like the dude passed out. The dude has short simple hair so he obviously wasn't sitting long and must be really fucked up.
Barber can't do his job cuz guy is fucked up and passing out. His kid sitting there snickering probaby isn't helping.
If I had an autistic child, I'd probably restrict his access to entertainment, put him around hobbies that could actually build relevant skills. But yeah. Fucking entirely agree.
I used to work at Chuck E Cheese's and we had a literally autistic Sonic fan who would hang around the merchandise booth. I made the mistake of talking about the Sega Genesis within earshot of him one day. I couldn't work the booth after that.
as much as people on /v/ shit on niggers they fail to realize that even at their worst they're still better than putting up with the majority of white people bullshit in retail.
Either you get the hyper-entitled white soccer mom who has to talk to the manager every time you look at her funny, or you get the worst of the worst neckbeard crowd that leaves the store uninhabitable for hours after they leave.
I worked at a black gamestop too and the worst i ever had to deal with were dumbass kids who would steal the cases off the shelves thinking the games were inside, or the occasional niggette barging through the store crying about racism and how she's going to sue because we didn't sell her obviously underaged son the new Grand Theft Auto.
Honestly i'd rather go back to that than spend 5 minutes working in the gamestop across town that deals with all the spaghetti, autism, and foul smells.
As some one who was diagonsed with a form of autism I want you to know that I am currently working on my masters degree and already have a decent job lined up/place of my own. I go to social events and such and people dont even know I have it. Yet i still play vidya and jerk it to anime any time im at home and im completely satisfied with life now.
So fuck off, if you have an autistic child, learn what makes them great and then nuture that.
theatre is a secret to overcoming autism thats why i want to work as an Art theirpist
If she at the very least looked normal chances are she wasn't entirely into the retarded MLP thing. Maybe just enjoyed the show and that's it. You could have fixed her, Anon. You could have.

You're one to talk, anon.
>go to gamestop
>buy my game
>have a little chat with the cashier about the game
>wish him a nice day and leave
Seams like the gamestop in germany is a normal place , i never saw some strange shit going in there..
The issue is that everyone expects you to be the nicest person on earth. So they treat you like dogshit.
Managers give hours "competitively" which is bullshit because they give it on favoritism and it's obvious.
There's a 15 year old girl that works there and gets double the hours than I do and I'm 20. She doesn't do shit but talk with the managers the entire time and always bitches that she has too many hours and begs people to take her shifts.
This one time an old guy was screaming at me that he wanted crispy nuggets with no breading. I suggested the grilled nuggets and he got fucking furious and demanded to see my manager.
>or you get the worst of the worst neckbeard crowd that leaves the store uninhabitable for hours after they leave.
I actually shave just before I go to GameStop so I don't show up with a neckbeard.
I'm always afraid of being that guy.
/v/ do you have any black friends?
If you do, do they get violent when playing video games as you would expect?
facial hair doesn't matter as long as you shower every fucking day and wash your clothes.
it's just that 99% of the time people who smell so foul also have neckbeards and some of the grimiest outfits you've ever seen.
does anyone else just find this embarrassingly hilarious, because I do
welcome to fast food
luckily i could get away with all sorts of shit where i worked because the owner was pretty cool
old people are always the worst about coming up with something to bitch about
it also convinced me that all black women are insane, no exceptions
Welcome to the real world faggot. How do you not already know this is how the world works? You could do fuck all, be the worst staff member ever, but if your friends with the bosses it doesn't matter. Best way is to buddy them yourselves or just go out of the way to be the best colleague ever (yeah right, no one has the motivation for this) or just simply don't give a fuck since your job is dead end and laughable anyway.
Buy, anon... What if she seen it and thought "What the fuck is this gay shit?" and was just looking at the case thinking "Not even if they paid me." until you bumped into her.
Asians and Indians are the worst, they always leave their shit everywhere.
Man I've been here longer than the fucking managers, I trained half of them how to do their job.
I work my ass off and I'm lucky if I don't get sent home early for "labor issues" or if i get a 4 day work week

Why would she act like I'm the idiot for wanting a replacement when they give replacements for broken products?
i know this is not a normal or acceptable thing to do in gamestop but i kinda can't find fault with this
>reasonably attractive (not super hot but not 0/10 either)
>fit, can dress normally
>doesn't appear dirty or mentally disabled
i dunno. I can get what you're trying to say with this but i'm just not feelin it. Maybe if she was 300 pounds with a naruto headband i might be more inclined to make fun of her. but as of now i could really care less (unless i had to get to the 3ds games she's blocking)
i know exactly how you feel

Sound appealing? Reminder: you're getting paid what someone at the McDonald's drivethrough is.
Sorry, when I say autistic I mean someone who really can't function at all in society, not someone like forest gump. Yes I realize autism ranges stretch far and wide, but again if people (mainly mothers) only had children before 35 the world be better for it. Again, good for you for getting through your problems. I was born to parents around age 45 and I still disagree with it.

I've got lot's of stories if anyone's interested.
if you're not going to use soap at least fucking rinse off with hot water every day.
seriously, the odor comes from dead and decaying skin cells and the bacteria that consume them. Clean off the fucking dead skin cells somehow and you eliminate a majority of the smell.
And as far as hair goes, rinse that shit out every day. You can wash it every 2 or 3 days if you must but if you're not thoroughly rinsing it out with hot water you're not solving any of your greasy hair problems. You're only making it worse.
>Nigerian guy walks in
These guys are always the best customers, sensible and civil. They're like the best bits of a white guy and the best bits of a black guy.

Fucking pokefags man.

you got that right
Why don't they just install ventilators in the stores?
>there are people in the world RIGHT NOW that believe this
No man, every Nigerian immigrant I've ever had as a customer comes in wearing a business suit and acts all high and mighty like he clearly is important and doesn't have time for me, pisses away money for no reason, and rolls his eyes at me if I try to explain anything to him

f-f-fuck gamestop ;__;
No joke, back in my NEET days when I was 17 I would sometimes go an entire month without showering. Because I rarely showered, when I did shower my skin would be so damn itchy because of all the dead skin. I'd stand there and just shed flakes (think dandruff) of skin off my body with the towel and watch as it fell to the floor.
Nah m8, these were 360 games. You'd be surprised. They were all like sports games that were 5 years old though. Our store was a high traffic 360 area, so 90% of the store was 360 games, and 5 of the other 10 was shitty ps2 games.

And boys, let me tell you about Anthony, he's the SGA from the first story. Continued in the next post
most of them yeah
but some of the girls have the cute nerd thing going on and all the dudes around them are so fat, ugly, smelly, and autistic that even the average /v/irgin looks pretty good in comparison.
>since when was normalcy a good thing here?
>He doesn't bitch about the toiletseat
Nigger nobody can help it if you're pussywhipped. I live with my girl for over a year now and we have some arguments, sure, but never so idiotic as the fucking toilet seat.
If she complains about stupid shit, I tell her to stop complaining about stupid shit. It's not hard anon.
I'm not unskilled.
Secondly, being unionized doesn't protect you from being laid off or working in unsafe conditions for an unfair wage.
They're in bed with management and don't give a fuck about you unless you've been a member since the 70's.
No Gamestop here in Scotland, but fuck, my local GAME gets on my plums.

Fuck GAME, they also de-activated my GAME card because I hadn't used in in about a month without telling me, and I lost the 10 quid that was on it

I cannot understand how people can get so angry over little things like this, lol. This wasn't the first time someone freaked the fuck out over stupid shit like this.
>back during E3 I would post here and refer to the XBox One as "the XBox One" rather than the "xbone" because I don't like adjusting my speech just so I'll fit in and please other people

>now we have people on /v/ openly admitting to actually buying them
What the fuck is he going to do exactly? Come over and just interject a conversation between four complete strangers and a random employee? I am sorry anon, but you're the autist here.
I wretched a little, the smell was fucking awful
I really don't think so, I think I was just better looking than some of my coworkers. I'm no Ryan Gosling, and I'm pretty chubby, though I've had some really hot girls hit on me at Uni and school. Every one of them said its because I'm really funny, but bitches don't make sense so I don't believe them.
>Anthony is my SGA
>He literally smells awful
>he is the /v/ stereotype, has a pony tail, and is balding on top
>wears a fedora to cover the bald spots
>is what my manager calls a pronoid, will activily try to correct you on a literal fact, shows heavy bias towards things he likes
>he smells like fucking garlic ass, is 5'3, and 250 plus pounds (how much I weigh, but I'm 6 foot and pretty stocky and a little built, with a gut)
>carries these two holsters on his sides, I thought they were pepperspray for the longest time
>he opens them one day and sprays him self one day
>realize on is axe, and one is febreeze
>he has a medical condition where he smells he claims, but could never name it
I've got lots of stories about Anthony if anyone wants to hear those.
>long day at school, was pretty hot and I was wearing jeans

I shower every day, pretty much if you find someone very attractive their smell wont bother you.

Of course we want to hear them anon. That's the whole point of fucking gamestop threads.
except unions are the greedy jews though.
Back when they were formed they were necessarity to ensure that you actually got paid for the work you did, and that you were getting told to do shit you didn't have the skill/training to do and end up dead with the factory claiming no responsibility.
But now that we're in the 21st century all of that has changed. Unions are the real threat to workers these days. You're strongarmed into paying "union fees" that take money away from you (pre-tax of course so they can get as much as possible). Can't volunteer for any overtime work if it's available because the foreman can't/won't risk his job to approve it without Union approval, and Union won't approve it because they won't get extra kickbacks from the overtime pay.
Need insurance? well you can sign up for this Union Approved policy that literally covers nothing and is run by the same group of people so they're getting even more of your tax-free money and doing literally nothing to help you. And now with Obamacare you have to sign up for it or you'll get hit with penalties every year.
Need time off for medical/emergency reasons? too bad. If it wasn't approved months ago you're not getting off without it coming out of your unpaid vacation days because the unions need to be compensated because they fought "so hard" to keep your job for you during those few days.
Fuck Unions and fuck anyone who supports them. Given that your average union rep looks something like this i don't see how people can still support them
stop using too much shampoo.
You don't have to use shampoo every day, just rinse your hair with hot water. Use shampoo every 2-3 days or on days where you worked up a lot of sweat.
