A Tale of Redundancy

Several years ago, while I was browsing the shelves at my local EB, an older woman who was also shopping approached the counter with a question. She had two games in her hand: a copy NHL ’06 for the PS2 and a copy of NHL ’06 for the Xbox. She told the clerk that her son owned both a PS2 and an XBox and liked hockey games, and asked which of the two versions was better and which he would suggest that she purchase. He promptly replied: “I would buy both of them. That way, he can play it on whichever system he wants.” Had I a bit more of a social conscience and a bit less SAD, I might have interjected at this point, but instead I watched in stunned silence and she purchased both games and left the store.
