My family and I went into a Game Stop today to buy some games. While my hubs and I were in line I overheard a young couple and the lady said, "But what about groceries?! " He then went on to buy $60 worth of games while his family seemingly needed food!! The lady just walked out of the store very upset. I would have livid!

we have one next to our super target and back home where i grew up there is one near a super walmart. so some are near places that sell groceries.

Quoting Hottmomma607:

Sounds weird! Game stops are not any places near food stores,so she went all the way to Game Stop with him&they needed groceries? I can't began to understand or explain people's need for thrills before bills!

Dang we still got Christmas dinner leftovers.

He's 6, she's 4.

Quoting diaperstodating: That's sad. How old is she? How old is your nephew.

Quoting IncognitoOne:

 I'm so glad my husband isn't a gamer.


My brother is, and wants his son to do the same. He and his wife sold some land, and the FIRST thing they did was went out and bought their son a new PS3, a new tv, new tv stand, Disney Infinity and all of the characters and power disks they currently have out. Then preordered himself a PS4 and a crap ton of games.


Now, if he were going to even TRY to be smart about spending money, the kid's TV he had was perfectly fine and less than a year old..along with the tv stand he had. He could have NOT bought another PS3..only to sell the one he had for cheap and just given that PS3 to his son when he got his PS4, and given the kid the game and those $100s worth of accessories (the characters, you can get all for $130 if you buy them together, he didn't want to wait for them to ship, so he paid a ton more and got them all separately) for Christmas instead of giving it all to him just 2 months before.


What is sad, all of that stuff he got himself and his son....I asked his daughter what she got, "A Hello Kitty hat." I asked SIL if that really was all they bought her when they bought all of that for him and she said, "Yeah."


Favoritism much? I mean, they DO have the money to do all of that and still feed their family, but it's ridiculous. My husband would be sleeping under the porch if he tried anything like that.

Were you in the Denison Tx area? Sounds like my EX. He did that once... Only when I stormed out of the store he forgot I had his wallet. And I called and reported his debit card stolen :-) (joint acct) and then moved the money from our joint to his daughters savings acct. so when he went out and got his card... It was declined. *snicker*

Kroger is a grocery store

One of he first things my exdf bought after our apt fire was new PS3, Xbox and wii. Never understood that mentality.

Thankfully we got clothes, food and new presents for his dd's birthday in less than 2 weeks first though.
