Give me a damn DS Lite already!
So I decide I want to get my wife her very own ds lite. Little did I know its like trying to find an inconspicuous Arab person on a plane in the US.
But not knowing this, I decide to just hop in the car and drive up to Liberal, a nice hour long drive with only a grain elevators and cows to look at. Thank god for Bob Marley.
I get to the store of pure evil…Wal-Mart. I look for some DS’s. Not a one. I ask. They say “We have some PSP’s”. I slap them in my mind.
I hop into my Batmobile and brake at the last second at GameStop. Huming “No Woman Don’t Cry” I search for the DS’s like playing Where’s Waldo? and you know for sure that the publisher didn’t actually put a Waldo in just to screw with you.
For once I get approached by an employee and I want to talk to him.
“What’s up with the DS Lites”
“*scoffs* We have been clean out since November.”
“Even the pink ones?”
“Especially the pink ones. But Nintendo has some new Cobalt and Black ones coming out next week.”
I will take this moment to point out that I am now beside myself. I have never, EVER been 1-uped by a Gamestop employee. I also just realized I am out of touch.
“Ok, I guess I can come back then. But since I came all the way here, can I grab Mario Party DS?”
“Thats the most popular game on DS right now. You would sooner find a Virtual Boy at a Gamestop before you find that”
That’s it. I have now stepped into an alternate universe. I have been twice punked and this guy is 100% right, and informed. W…T…F…
I leave, defeated. I bet he walked back to the back, grabbed a new unboxed DS Lite and smashed it with a sledge hammer and laughed maniacally. The GameStop beat me, I knew it. The standee by the front door is balanced on one of the corners by a Mario Party DS card and my balls are no where to be found.
I go to Hastings, but I know what I will not find. But I waste time anyway. I go through the motions. I grab a bunch of books instead.
No sooner did I write this did I find out that the new DS Lite was released and it is now sitting in front of me. FYI
