EB Games Liverpool are fucktards (updated)

Beware: rant ahead.

I went to the store this morning to pick up my eagerly anticipated Assassin’s Creed, smiling at the fact that I could finally play the game and could finally get my hands on my very first Collector’s Tin ever.

Low and behind, they denied me a Collector’s Tin. The reason? I had preordered after the 10th or 11th of November. If I had wanted a Tin, I had to pre-order before then. It was noted on a sign somewhere.

WHERE WERE THE FUCKEN SIGNS IN THE FUCKEN STORE?!

“At the counter,” Douchebag One said.

IF IT WAS IN FRONT OF THE COUNTER IT WOULD HAVE BEEN SO FUCKEN LOW FOR THE PERSON DIRECTLY IN FRONT OF THE COUNTER TO SEE IT. IF IT HAD BEEN BEHIND THE COUNTER ON THE GLASS WALL, MAYBE, JUST MAYBE, IT COULD HAVE BEEN VISIBLE AMONGST THE OTHER SHIT THEY HAVE ON THEIR WALLS.

Also on the day that I preordered, I asked Gary (name changed) if this pre-order was for the Collector’s Tin as well. He replied a simple, “Yes”.

WHERE’S THE JUSTICE HERE? NOT ONLY WAS I DENIED MY VERY FIRST COLLECTOR’S TIN FOR A GAME THAT I WAS WAITING FOR OVER A YEAR, BUT THEY MIGHT AS WELL HAVE CALLED ME A LIAR.

“Look, call us up in 4 days to see if theres any Tins left,” Douchbag One said.

FUCK YOU. Don’t say “look” to me with a slightly annoyed tone just because I was demanding justice. Fucktard.

The lesson here? I’ve forgotten why I stopped shopping at EB Games.

PS. It’s not just about the Tin. It’s about the principle. Oh, and it had an arty comic inside as well.

**** UPDATE

Apparently, I DID NOT pre-order the game after the November 10th cut-off date. I had assumed that I did, cuz Douchebag One was looking at the receipt before the transaction so I thought I knew what he was talking about. Obsession and curiosity got the better of me, so yesterday I had a look at my MSN log files searching for when I declared to the girlfriend that I had pre-ordered the game – which was November 3rd.

Anyhow, I got the my very first Xbox Collector’s Tin, and all is good.

The lesson here? Check the receipt yourself, instead of leaving it to the retailtards.

    you can complain here http://www.ebgames.com.au/home/contact.cfm
    if one of the guys told u specifically that u were right to get the tin, they might be able to sort something out, i know for a fact your complaint will get to their District manager.

    maybe just send them a link to your blog, and leave a phone number.
