It's a TRAP!!!
nobody is saying it's the gamestop clerk's fault. They're just saying it's annoying. And since we know there's a ton of other options, there's no need to put up with it.
Like if you walked into Target and their policy was to throw feces at you. People just would like to avoid that.
im not really sure how asking for preorders is even remotely comparable to tossing feces at me...
