Another thread got me thinking... Anyone got their stories about people acting like total asshats over the latest craze? Like from Cabbage Patch Kids, Tickle Me Elmo, Pokemon, Skylanders, ect... I personally have a rather blood curdling story from thirteen years ago that brings out the depths of rage in me to this very day. December 1999. I worked at this toy store that's now long since out of business in a Mall in Grapevine, TX. The Gameboy Color is in high demand, especially for Pokemon Yellow. Sadly due to an earthquake in Taiwan, stores were short on stock and just couldn't meet the demand. Anyways, I finish my shift, I punch out, and I'm fixing to head out for the day. Enter: Crazy bitch and her brat She's sitting there at the game counter while the regular registers were swamped. So I figure "Might as well help one more customer" and I put my apron back on and ask if she needs help. We have one GBC left and it's pink. She is mad because I can't go in the back and get a different color one because... well... there aren't any. So here I am telling this woman that it's either pink or nothing and she is getting louder and meaner the entire time until... WHAM... her purse comes down right onto my head. And I swear she must of had a cinder block in her purse or something because my head goes straight into the counter, breaking my nose and chipping off a good portion of one of my front teeth. When she saw me get back up with blood coming out of every orifice in my face. She grabs her kid and RUNS. Mall security never find nor identify her. Granted, there were other really awful incidents at the store, like one of my co-workers being lifted off his feet by the collar of his shirt by this really huge guy. Another time I had to break up a fight between two grown men over pokemon card.
