So I tried to buy a PlayStation 3 today.
Shopped around, picked what I figured was the best deal I was gonna get without going to Northern Ireland (80GB PS3 with FIFA09 and Resistance 2 for €399.99), took a ticket from the display and got in line.
When I reached the counter, the conversation went like this:
Me (handing deal ticket to manager): I'd like a PS3, please.
Manager (pointing to display): 'Which deal?'
Me (thinking it should be obvious from ticket but not being a smartass about it): 'Top left.'
Manager: 'All I have left is FIFA09 and Little Big World. Nothing else.'
Me: 'Can I pick a different game to Little Big World?'
Me: 'Can I get a credit for when Resistance 2 is in stock again?'
Me: "Thanks. Goodbye.'
Obviously the recession isn't biting as hard as we're led to believe...
