The first two are things that have annoyed me for a long time now, while the other one is a very new annoyance.
What are they, you might ask?
[SIZE=4][COLOR=red][B]1.[/B][/COLOR][/SIZE] People bitching about the Greatest Hits/Platinum Hits game covers/cases and how they're 'ugly'.
Honestly. The game sold well enough to reach that point, so if you wanted a 'black label' copy of the game, why didn't you buy it BEFORE all of those copies are long gone from the market?
Oh it's because you were waiting for a deal on it? So now you got a deal on the game but lo and behold the copy shows up to your doorstep and it's in the red/silver packaging. :bomb::bomb::bomb:RAGGEEEEEEEEEEEEE! Commence whining about 'omg this soooooo fucks up the feng shui of my gaming collection and I can't have this on my shelf', even though it's the SAME fuckin' game just in a different colored packaging.
Here's an idea, since the coverart is usually largely the same, Google 'replacement game cases' for your console of choice and then buy a frickin' case of them to swap out those 'ugly' red/silver ones with. Problem solved.
[SIZE=4][COLOR=red][B]2.[/B][/COLOR][/SIZE] People overvaluing their time and expecting to be 'compensated' if they spend more than half a millisecond in a store without someone being literally up their ass the moment they come into the store to see if they need help.
I understand that maybe some CAG's and other shoppers only have time during their lunch or break or whatever and can't get away to shop at their leisure. But if you're that pressed for time, why not just go to Amazon/Buy/etc/etc and order stuff online and have it shipped right to your house?
That way then we don't have to read about you 'deserving' a free gift card because it took more than 10 seconds to get that copy of (insert name of item that isn't really all that important in the grand scheme of things but you just HAD to have right NOWWWWW) into your grubby hands and get checked out.
Please learn to use sites like PriceGrabber and such to find the lowest price for the shit you want and get it shipped to your home since it's just so annoying to read how you whined to the manager at X or Y store about how you're owed shit because their employees couldn't just drop everything to wait on you and you alone.
[SIZE=4][COLOR=red][B]3.[/B][/COLOR][/SIZE] People bitching about shipping delays during the holiday season.
Yes indeed. Your package is important to us at (insert shipping carrier name here), which is why we take our time to make sure it gets to you safely and undamaged.
What's that? You wanted it yesterday, even if we had to bounce it around in the warehouse like a pinball? OK then. Don't blame us(but we know you will:roll:) when your package arrives with footprints all over it from us playing soccer with it to 'expedite' it into our truck to get it delivered to you faster.
We at (insert carrier name) value your business and want to deal with your self important ass again sometime soon. Thank you for trusting in your package to be delivered by us.
All sarcasm aside it's really amusing to me when people complain about how X or Y company uses this or that delivery service and how it took 'too long' to get to them. As if the delivery company is supposed to drop everything they're doing and forget about the other millions of packages they have to deliver and just focus on getting Betty Bitchfest their package and get it there NOW.
Don't worry little Jimmy, your toy train will arrive AFTER Christmas because impatient shopper #56363567357 had to have that Sex & The City complete season boxset delivered right NOW because they need it more than you need your toy. It's ok you'll have lots of other toys for Christmas to play with, right?
So yeah....the three things above just really get on my nerves, but I'm sure I get on your combined nerves a lot more often than that, right my fellow CAG's?:razz::booty:
