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!

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.

shrugging*edited* Ok my point is lost somewhere? lol Let me make it clear my point is NOT where the Game stop is I don't give two flying sh*ts if it was in the middle of a grocery store. Why did the woman go into Game Stop,no matter where its located(the ones I've paid attention are in the malls,thats what first came to my mind I'm sure its different in other areas?)and watch him pick up a games and then buy? Simple question? I was curious.

I don't pay attention to Game Stops I don't frequent there DH&DS goes like the ones I said I know of are in the malls oh one inside of The Exchange. I don't make a mental note of GS. I am not excusing this "man's" behavior,etc. but in common sense would say,I would have NOT walked into that store if I was that woman. IJS.

I wouldn't have even went into that store if I was in that situation. I would have happily beat him to the grocery store,made my purchases and then when he had tried to buy games declined! Or whatever the situation is? Because I'm guessing they had money for one or not the other? Or maybe he was cutting into their grocery budget?
