DualShock Depreciation

, | Washington, USA | Uncategorized

(This is during Christmas time 2001 and a lot of people came in for stocking stuffers and such. I’m stocking some generic potato chips and an old woman approaches me. Keep in mind, this is a DOLLAR STORE.)

Old Woman: “Excuse me…”

Me: “Hello, may I help you find something?”

Old Woman: “Yes, do you folks have Playstation 2s?”

Me: “Uh… no, ma’am. I’m sorry, we don’t.”

Old Woman: “Oh, well, they were out of ’em at [chain electronics store], so I thought you folks might have ’em.”

Me: “Well, we carry mostly overstock. Besides, PlayStation 2’s are worth far more than just one dollar so I’m pretty sure we’ll never carry them…”

Old Woman: “What about after Christmas?”

Me: “Yeah, I don’t think so.”
