Last night my husband and I went to Target to buy the usual and as usual we go take a look at the video game (PC) wall to see what they have on clearance (got love buying a $40 game for $5 to $10). I noticed on the wall they had the newer Fear game out (it's Fear Gold Edition which is the game and the expansion pack together). Price $29.99 - that's $10 less then other stores so I thought it was a good deal. So I'm there deciding on what game to get (if any) and decide to check out the price for Fear since the price seemed off. I scan the game under the price checker and it comes up $39.99 so I said to the hubby, "Oh, looks like it was in the wrong spot" and contemplate buying it or not. The employee in the area overheard me and came to look. I asked him about the game and he snatched it right out of my hands and scanned it in his hand held scanner (and you would think that since I use to work there that I'd remember what it's called but I don't). He replied, "Oh this isn't out until April 10, sorry but you can't have it back." WTF? I looked at him and said, "Uh, that version came out last month." He looked at me as if I should know better and replied, "Well, it won't be out on our shelves until April 10th. It's not for sale right now. I need to take these to the back," and scooped up the stack of Fear games and walked off.
Now what deems as bad service on this employee's part? The fact he snatched the game out of my hand to scan, he could have picked one up from the shelf instead AND the fact that he walked off with ALL the Fear games from the shelf leaving a void in the wall. I HATE people snatching things out of my hands.
Edit to add: The GOLD version came out MARCH 22. It's currently available for retail at Best Buy, Walmart, ShopKo, Circuit City and online at various retailers like Amazon.
