“On the house…”

I went after work to GameStop to purchase the Final Fantasy IX strategy guide. The 2 teenagers behind the counter were constantly making stupid remarks to each other. I was browsing around the PS1 and N64 Games. I ask the teen, if he had any more copies of FF9 guide. He said “No”, then checked on his computer and said “no” again.

So I tell my sister lets check around. While browsing through I hear my sister find the guide. I tell the guy “I found what your computer couldn’t track…” He was acting shocked and he eyed his co-worker. I believe they were hiding it from the public so they could purchase it at the end of their shift. Or just being pricks, probably both.

So I go up and pull out my money. He starts looking around. He felt like a dumbass, so he says “I will give you the guide.” I tell him that’s funny, and to ring me up I have the money. He said “No, really it’s on the house… I am sorry for telling you it was not here.” I argued with him on money. I even showed the money to the camera and said “LET THE RECORD SHOW THIS EMPLOYEE IS GIVING ME THE BOOK, WHEN I OFFERED TO PAY!” Took the book and left. I further think it was the dude’s last day too.

He was so sure of his own lie that he had to come up with another the next time I came in. He described the case as red and having a dragon on the cover of it (FFIII for his Super Famicom). “I think it was a limited edition.”

Okay, this lie is pretty thick.. He held on to this lie all the way until it was proven to be fake and he still holds on to this day.

We were going through a timeline of all the FF games and what system they came out for – I was on lunch from work and would frequently go down to this EB to play demos, buy games, talk shop and also to see what kind of lies this kid was going to tell me next. We go to FFIII and he mentioned that it came out for the Super Famicom. I questioned it a little bit and just continued waiting to come back to it. We finished the list and I mentioned that FFIII came out for the Famicom and not the Super Famicom and he said no. I told him that I had just got FFIII in the mail from eBay and that it was for my Famicom. He told me I was wrong and I decided that I was going to prove him wrong.

The next day, at lunch, I came back with the Famicom version of FFIII and showed it to him. He told me, “Yep, it’s Super Famicom.” I showed him that he was a f’in’ moron and pointed out the shape of the case and he was confused.

“That’s wierd. I have it for the Super Famicom.”
