One Wrong Number Can Lead To Many Right Ones

| Working | September 3, 2012

(I’m buying a preowned copy of Gears of War 2, and the girl behind the counter presents the discs to show there’s no visible damage etc. As she puts them back in the box, I notice something off about the main game disc.)

Me: “Hang on, that’s the wrong game.”

Employee #1: “No it’s not. Says it right there, Gears of War.”

Me: “Yeah, but shouldn’t it say Gears of War 2?”

Employee #1: “Why? What’s the difference?”

Me: “Umm… well, there’s the difference between buying a game I already own and buying the sequel to that game.”

(At this point, another employee shows up.)

Employee #2: “Is something wrong?”

Employee #1: *angrily* “He’s whining over nothing!”

Me: *to employee #2* “Do you understand the concept of a sequel?”

(Employee #2 gets me the right game while Employee #1 goes off in a huff. I have a bit of a laugh and chat with Employee #2 for a few minutes. When I get home and open up the game, I find Employee #2’s has left her phone number on a scrap of receipt paper inside!)
