I work at a store (uk) where this sh*t is starting and increasing fast, our company was never about this sh*t but now its frustrating how much they are changing, sh*t is annoying as fu*k, I hate when I go in stores and People are trying to sell me sh*t, why would I wanna bother customers at my store?
I wanna help people who wanna be helped
Not push someone into buying some sh*tty game


I've worked there 8 year and I feel like I'm losing my mind, I hate retail, I hate the majority of people 2..

Not my bx homies tho

There's an easy way to avoid that sh*t in the future. This is how the conversation should have gone :

''So you don't want nothing no games controllers?''

''You don't need to reserve anything xbox playstation nothing?''

''Nah i'm good man''

''So you mean you don't wanna reserve call of duty or grand theft auto?'

[Blank stare and stern silence for 5 seconds]

"Are you going to give me the money or not?"
Not just for Gamestop either, but for any time that you're engaged in trade, be firm, specific and direct, and you're far less likely to get harassed by sales pitches or r*ped by scams. Just like a door-to-door salesman, these guys prey on politeness and excel at making the most out of any room that the customer provides for them to breathe, with the intention of coercing you into making unnecessarily costly transactions on impulse.
Whenever you go to a store, only be personable to the extent that'll get you the best deal for the purchase that you'd initially planned to make, because when it comes to dealing with the digressions of an a.ssertive salesman, it pays to be an as*hole.

ya my boy got suckered into buying a $100 monster cable from bestbuy cause the sales person told him some bull sh*t about it producing better video quality then the cheap wires.

i told him lets do some video comparison with your $100 wire and my $10 wire and see which one looks better. both looked identical lol. he was super pissed. and his wire was only a few ft long while the one i had was 10ft. his was barely long enough to reach from his xbox360 were he had it on his TV shelf to his HDTV lol.

i hit him with the

To be honest, we really DON'T wanna ask you, the reason outside of, and this may seem alarming to you, but it's our job, is because we don't wanna hear crying when the sh*t you want drops and you have this face like, "n*ggas never told me this"

and I hit you with the

and it's on to the next one. Everyone at GameStop KNOWS it's annoying because we would rather just kick back for a few hours, clean up a bit and go about our business, but we need that money, everyone does and me personally, I just ask once, but some of you dudes would lie like crazy and I see you again tryna get the game you DIDN'T pre-order and wonder why I'm pullin your bi*ch card in front of your momma

Who the fu*k trades in games for cash anymore, take the store credit anything you want with cash besides drugs and paying bills you can get with gamestop credit.......

so you miss out on 50% extra store credit on top of the trade credit value vs the cash.

makes no damn sense.
Worry about your god damn self
Not everyone buys games on the regular

Yep. It annoys the hell out of me though that they'll give you $35 trade in credit but will give you like $15 if you decide on cash. Anyone care to explain why they do that?

If you read what i wrote you would of seen A) I don't go to game stop ever and haven't for a long time.. B) those games were so old nobody would probably buy them and they were just collecting dust i cared no fu*ks about those games and just wanted to get whatever cash i could for them..

Cause they know when u take the cash ur gonna go spend it some were else. Also when people take the store credit when trading in games u wind up having to dish out more cash to pay for the difference on a brand new $60 game. Its there way of screwing people over on trade in value plus taking money from them at the same time.

A lot of people don't know you can buy gift cards at gamestop

I always get Amazon gift cards, Movie gift cards, Steam Wallet cards.
they also got Gas station gift cards, Burger King, Taco Bell, etc.

they have lots of gift cards you can buy at gamestop thats why I will always take the credit.
