    Sticks & stones may break my bones, but naked, guitar-throwing customers can really hurt me!
  2. Acute Mental Failure:
    HULK CAN’T FIGURE OUT HOSPITAL DOOR! HULK SMASH!

    Can’t check into your hotel room, lady? Just mentally check out by ripping off your clothes and running in circles!
  4. Fudge In Flight:
    A customer airs their fudge frustrations by sending their ice cream sundae airborne.

Mommy More Melee

| Aberdeen, Scotland, UK | Family & Kids

(A female customer who looks to be in her late thirties is at the counter asking about upcoming games releases for her 10-12 year old son, who is looking through the games on display. He runs up to the counter.)

Child: “Mummy, mummy, can I have this game?”

(He hands the 18+ rated game “Dead Island” to his mom, who looks at the back of the box.)

Woman: *disgusted* “You’re not having this! Look, it’s got a man hitting a zombie with an axe on the back! I’ve got no problem with you shooting people, but an axe?!”

Grand Theft Innocence, Part 3

| Dublin, Ireland | Family & Kids, Rude & Risque

(A kid walks into the store and brings “Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas” up to the counter. He’s no more than 11.)

Me: “I’m sorry, but I can’t let you rent that game. It’s for over 18 only.”

Kid: “My mom lets me play this all the time!”

Me: “Well, you’ll have to get her to rent it for you then.”

(The kid stomps off and returns with his mother. She brings the game up.)

Customer: “I want to rent this.”

Me: “Well, I should tell you that it is a very violent game.”

Customer: “I don’t mind that.”

Me: “Well, in this game, you can actually pick up a hooker and beat her to death afterwards to get back your money. There’s loads of graphic violence and bad language.”

Customer: *alarmed* “Bad language?” *turns to her son* “Darren, you know you’re not allowed things with bad language!” *grabs him by the arm and storms out with him in tow*

The Lesser Of Two Intergalactic Evils

| Virginia, USA | Uncategorized

(An elderly man dressed like a hippie is looking through our PS2 section.)

Customer: “Now, this game has the right idea.” *gestures to a copy of ‘Destroy All Humans’* “Humanity is what’s killing mother Earth. The world would be so much better if we just got rid of them all.”

Me: “Um, sir, do you really think a race whose primary weapon is an anal probe gun would really do any better?”

Customer: *thinks it over* “No, I suppose you’re right.” *sadly puts the game back and walks away*

More Daylight, Less Twilight, Part 6

| Scotland, UK | Bizarre, Top

(I’m helping a customer in her early teens.)

Customer: “Hey, I’m trying to find a game for my boyfriend. Could you help me?”

Me: “Yeah, sure. What sort of—”

Customer: “Oh, the guy on this is hot! What’s this like?”

Me: “Oh, that’s the new Castlevania game. Basically, it’s about killing vampires and werewolves.”

Customer: “What!?! Why would anyone buy this?! Vampires and werewolves are cool and hot! You make me sick selling this! Haven’t you ever seen Twilight!? Vampires are like people!” *runs out of the shop with tears in her eyes*

Me: “I feel so sorry for her boyfriend.”
