Okay, story time. Sit down and grab a cup 'o joe.that would make me wanna just punch her in the face
I hit a local WM this morning. Just as they opened the doors, the Asian lady who owns a hello kitty store that scalps figures appeared. Normally, she or her husband are consistently a few minutes late, but today, she got there just in the nick of time. She raced me to the SW figs.
Lucky for me, they had put out a case or two of wave 2 Legends on the end-cap side. She stopped, started grabbing all the Sandtroopers and Fetts. Since I'm good with wave 2, I went to the main section which was overflowing with wave 4.4 (no Vader or CZ-4.) Knowing she's stocking for her store, I started grabbing every gold coin I could find. When she saw what I was doing, she literally dropped her hand full of figures and darted toward me and started after the gold coins.
With her arms full of McChewies and gold coins, she started asking me if I was buying all of mine. Since I never talked with her, I figured I'd be nice, try to share and actually gave her a gold coin Fett and Chewie as an olive branch. BIG MISTAKE. She then started asking me why I need so many. She was so preoccupied with what I had in my hands that she failed to notice that there were still plenty of gold coins on the pegs. I told her, "there's still plenty there," she said, "no, you have them all." I proceeded to pull an Animated Boba Gold coin off the pegs and handed it to her. She then started pointing to all my Fetts and Chewies and asked if she could have them and said I don't need them all. I told her I need them for trade, she said it was unfair that I had so many and that, get this, she need them for her store. Keep in mind, she has twice as many figures in her arms. She then started to all but cry and threaten to tell management on me. Having gotten all but one Gold Airborne trooper from the pegs, I just left. She got a shopping cart and started dumping figures in it.
I was really pissed. So at check out, I told the cashier that the lady following me is crazy and gave her the cliff notes version. The cashier called the manager and asked me to repeat what happened. The manager told the cashier to call him when she comes to check out. He said she's not walking out of the store with all those toys.
I really wanted to hang out and watch, but felt it'd be bad form. In the end I only walked away with two Fett's, three chewies and five Troopers, so I was really mad that I gave up two Fetts and a Chewie to her. Lessoned learned.
And BTW, the Fett's and Chewies are already spoken for. Sorry guys.
