I'd like to quote Weather Underground:

Any travel is strongly discouraged. If you leave the safety of being indoors, you are putting your life at risk.


Fuxx0rz. I've got things to do, and not just on Live!

Co-worker!

You too are an EB employee? What store number, if you don't mind me asking? I'm at 526 myself.

Pre-ordering

They do encourage us to admonish customers into pre-ordering games, as that determines the number of games made (if done early enough) and given to our store. I'm usually a pressuring punk when it comes to titles I have a soft spot for, and I know some people who pre-order a game they really want to see do well three or four times in order to drive those numbers up.

Lying about the stock? That I've never done on purpose, or been told to do. But you're right, we are encouraged to admonish people who didn't pre-order a game.

``Do you have game X?''
``I do, because I pre-ordered it. Did you pre-order it?''
``No...''
``Then I suggest you give us a call in a week or so, when we might have more.''

The day of the PS2 launch, after having a dozen or so Red Bulls, I was asked by a woman how she could get her hands on one.

``Did you pre-order it?''
``No, what can I do?''
``The first thing you need to do is build a time machine. Then travel back in time to the early summer of this year, pre-order one, and then travel back to the present to pick it up.''

She stared at me as if I had sprouted another head, my co-workers couldn't believe that I had said that.
