While sitting at work, minding my own business.
Email from Abe: Hey, can you do me a favor and pick up Infamous 2 at Game Stop today – “the hero edition”.
At lunchtime, I ran across the mall and walked into Game Stop and no more than 2 seconds later a lanky/zitty/over eager dude around 19 years old came right up to me sort of how a cat would pounce on a wounded mouse.
Dude: May I help you?
Me: Do you have any Infamous 2 Hero Editions Left?
Dude: I think someone may have cancelled their order yesterday… hey Mike did someone cancel their Infamous 2 Hero Edition order yesterday?
–We walked over to the cashier counter.–
Mike: [labored sausage finger typing tap tap tap] Yes, let me check, I think that someone might have cancelled yesterday we might have 1 in stock.
–three way silence — two of us potentially had boners —
Mike: We do have just 1 more for you. You know if you ever know of a game coming out that you really want, you should come in and pre-order it so that you have it guaranteed… we normally don’t have the collector’s editions in stock for walk-ins.
Me: Oh, thanks that’s a great tip…thanks for the help…
Um, what just happened there?
Anyways, after that awkward transaction I rewarded myself with a Pinkberry and then had to lug a giant Game Stop bag with huge box inside back to my office where I promptly hid it under my desk.
