Please Pokémon Go Away, Part 2

, , , , | Right | October 1, 2021

I’m in a popular catalogue-themed shop, queuing to collect the items I have paid for. I see an angry-looking woman push to the front of the queue. She loudly complains to the poor girl behind the till.

Customer: “Your system said you had one of these games in stock.”

Staff Member: “I’m sorry, I don’t know what item you mean.”

Customer: *Sighs loudly* “The game for the thing, the… Pokémon game.”

Staff Member: “Did you pay or reserve it?”

Customer: “Ugh, no, I was about to, but it told me it was then out of stock.”

Staff Member: “I’m sorry. Someone else probably bought it.”

Customer: “What, but I was about to buy it!”

Staff Member: “Sorry, but it is first-come, first-served.”

She muttered plenty under her breath but stayed at the tills, watching the queue slowly collect their items, each time craning to see what they bought, no doubt waiting for “her” game.

I’m not sure what she was planning to do if she found the person, because the line moved so slowly that she gave up and went away just before I got to the till.

That was good because I was really looking forward to playing that Pokémon game I had just paid for!
