So when dealing with kids you're always going
to have the occasional case where the parent
gets pissed about what their kid did, and want
to undo the entire transaction with regards to
games they've traded in. As a rule, Gord
generally holds stuff from new kids he has never
dealt with before for about a week just in
case this happens.
"Yes, my son traded in 4 games that I want
"Which four games were those?"
"Pokemon Pinball, Red, Yellow, and Blue."
"Uhm… Hang on. According to the account,
those were traded in way back in March. And
it's now October. That's a touch long in
wanting to resolve this issue."
"What are you saying?"
"Well, assuming I were to reverse the
transaction, I don't have any copies of
Pokemon Pinball in stock."
"Then you better get me a new one to replace
it for free."
"Noooo…. That's quite alright. If this
was such a problem why did you wait six
"It's your fault for dealing with my son!
Those weren't his games to trade."
"So it's my fault your son is an idiot…
ok. Good parenting there. I bet you blame
everyone for your problems, don't you?"
"You just replace those games!"
"Better idea, your son has $80 in credit on
file. He can use it to buy other games."
They then left, with the threat I had better
replace the games. Oddly enough, they
never came back. The $80 credit is still on
