Numa Numa Meets The Beaches Of Normandy

| Right | February 10, 2009

(I overheard two cashiers talking about World of Warcraft while an older female customer and her husband approached them.)

Cashier #1: “My guild went on a big raid last night but didn’t complete it.”

Cashier #2: “You weren’t able to kill the boss?”

Cashier #1: “No, the boss was really tough to kill; we’re going to try again tomorrow.”

Customer: *to husband* “We should call a manager–I can’t believe these kids are talking about killing their boss!”

Cashier #2: “Oh no, ma’am, it’s a video game called World of Warcraft. You go on adventures to kill monsters, and the big ones are called ‘bosses’.”

Customer: “I don’t care about your ‘World War’ game. No wonder there is so much violence in this world – video games teaching kids to kill their bosses!”

Cashier #1: “It’s not ‘World War,’ ma’am, it’s World of Warcraft, and it’s not teaching us violence…”

Customer: “I don’t care what it’s called. My husband fought in a real world war and he can tell you, violence is not a game! Right, Richard?

Customer’s Husband: *distracted* “Huh?”

Customer: “Forget it. C’mon, we’re never coming back to this place. One of these kids is bound to shoot the place up.”
