So stuff gets stolen. Gord does
what he can to control it. There is damn near no live stock
on the floor and people sometimes just don't bring back
rentals. It happens. They get sent to collections and their
credit shot, but it's all in the context of doing business.
It's never personal, I assume they aren't coming in to steal
from Gord personally.
One buddy decides to make it personal one day.
So buddy comes into the store and sits down by the window
where there was a tres cool super deformed Solid Snake and
Merrill covering his eyes. Trust me, it was a beauty. The
Gord didn't pay attention to what he was doing as there was
nothing really over there and there were customers in the
Then he migrates over to the used Genesis games, and finally
When he left a regular noted that buddy had stolen a game.
When checked, he had stolen David Robinson's Supreme Court.
It was priced at $2.
Then Gord noticed that buddy had scratched a good chunk of the
mural in the window. Not only had he stole a crap game to
prove he could, and vandalized the store.
The Gord was enflamed with rage and swore that he would find
the person and revenge would be extracted! He would not rest
until the retribution was at hand.
Gord quickly learned that the thief and vandal worked at a
local department store. He went down there that night and
found the thief working. Rather than simply confronting the
thief as that wouldn't be enough, Gord masterminded a
brilliant plan that children still sing songs about to this
He went up and made sure to talk to the thief for a couple
minutes for the security camera, then he made sure to take an
item from the department he worked in to the cashier.
With his purchase in hand, Gord proceeded to the customer
service desk and went into a huge story about how the "Mike in
Gardening" was rude to him, told him to "fuck off" and made
sexual comments to the female companion that was with Gord.
Another employee vouched for what happened (a friend of Gord
who was working there at the time), and customer service
offered to give the Gord his purchase for free (Gord declined,
as then that would be theft and Gord would be no better than
those Gord sought to destroy).
Seems management was VERY angry with our thief Mike here and
was promptly fired.
Gord is a contentious Gord. Fear the Gord and do not cross
the Gord. He who sows injustice will reap calamity, and the
rod of his fury will fail. Embrace the Gord.
