Oops. Something's delayed and you didn't like their answer they gave you, even if it's out of their control? Cry for a gift card.
An employee doesn't bow and curtsey at your feet and wait on you hand and foot from the nanosecond you step foot in the store? Whine for a gift card.
The absolute best though has to be the people on the BB forums lately who did one of the financing or credit card offers they always try to pitch when you're in BB anymore. People signed up for them without reading and fully understanding the T&C and then a year or more later they miss a payment or the promo period is done and they're hit with a TON of interest they didn't expect. Yet somehow it's not THEIR fault, it's Best Buy's fault for allowing such a 'shady' company to do business with them.
Since I joined CAG I've amassed such a backlog that even if I play games 24/7/365, I will likely have more than enough entertainment to keep me occupied until the middle of the NEXT gaming gen. So when a game ships a day or two after release, it's no biggie to me, since I will usually have a ton of other games I can sit and play through.
