Youngest and his "new game"

Recommended Posts

So it goes like this.

 

Mom, Game Stop's got whatever game coming out, and I have to be there at midnight tonight.

 

DO WHAT?

 

Mom, I have to go get that game... You know, the one I went and ordered last week.

 

TONIGHT?

 

Yeah, at midnight.

 

HAVE YOU LOST YOUR MIND?

 

(giggle/giggle) Mom, this is a really cool game.

 

HOW OLD ARE YOU NOW?

 

(giggle/giggle) 19.

 

ARE YOU SERIOUS?

 

(giggle/giggle) Yeah. I paid for it, so I need to go get "something or another"

 

YOU'RE REALLY SERIOUS?

 

Oh, Mom.....

 

YEAH, OKAY, WHATEVER.

 

So at 10:15 he comes into my office and says, I'm fixing to leave.

 

RIGHT NOW?

 

Yeah, the girl said I need to get there early because we may have to take numbers, and they have a limited supply.

 

OH, HORRORS. WELL, OKAY, YOU CALL ME WHEN YOU GET THERE.

 

Okay.

 

Time clicks by... no phone call....still nothing... all right now, so I call...

 

Son, are you there?

 

YEAH, MOM.

 

I told you to call me when you got there.

 

I DIDN'T THINK IT WAS IMPORTANT.

 

Excuse me?

 

I FORGOT (giggle/giggle)

 

Well, how many folks are there?

 

GETTING TO BE QUITE A FEW NOW.

 

(I'm thinking there's more than one idiot out there). So, son, what number are you?

 

NUMBER 11.

 

So you mean there's 10 more stupid people than you are?

 

HUH?

 

Okay, well, you call me when you leave.

 

OKAY.

 

Goooodddd griiiefffff alllmiiiggghtyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!! I don't care what anybody says, I have EARNED every gray hair I have!!!!!!!!!

 

And I'll betcha he forgets to call me when he starts home. The word "focus" is no longer useful, I have to look words up in the dictionary that mean the same, so he'll REMEMBER!

I have never and will never buy a game at Game Stop. They rip you off completely on buy backs. Best Buy (and the awesome Rewards Zone) for me. Oh and Amazon.com. The deals they give out is amazing.
