Not a personal midnight launch story, but one I thought would be interesting to share.

Context: The guy picking up the game tried to use his business card instead of photo ID to identify himself for the preorder while the female manager tried to get everyone else in the store to send him harassing e-mails but eventually made an exception for him because of his attitude towards her and he was keeping up the line.


Not saying I side with either person, since the guy should have known that he needed photo ID to pick up his game and he acted like a d-bag when he wasn't allowed to, but the manager acted pretty unprofessional through her snarky remarks and condescending attitude, as well as by threatening to give out the guy's e-mail to a bunch of random customers and encouraging them to harass the guy.

I wouldn't be surprised if she gets fired. She kind of fucked up with the email comment. Not saying she was wrong because the dude was a dick but considering I saw this video on Kotaku and knowing how corporate environments work, she's probably done.

Funny....being such a douche about customer service as he is about to go play a game that has killing and stealing.

That guy was a dick. Another reason why you dont go to midnight launches.
