So I go to WM yesterday afternoon and find the island which has been discussed on the boards. Its loaded with DVD 3-packs and the last 12 figs. I buy a couple of each figs and the DVD clone pack and head off to the checkout.
The DVD packs ring fine. Then the basic figs are not in the system. I waited 30 minutes for a price check and this is what I get. Sorry we cant sell you these figures since they arent suppose to be on the floor. I then mention that someone has bought some recently because the 501st Clone is the only fig not available. I can see if 1-2 figs were on the floor, but there were tons. We still cant help you . By now I have about 5 customers behind me that are pissed at me because I am holding them up. Only 2 registers are open. Then the person who denies me to buy them asks me what I want to do. Wrong question to ask me. I want to buy them and they still say no. By now I am floored and said if you want to know what I want, but wont sell them, to stop jerking me off and think before you ask such a stupid question. I ask for the Manager who is not in the store that day. Now I have 3 WM employees telling me that my behavior is a bit much. I leave the other items I bought and told them to pound sand.
Fast forward a few hours when I go back that night. The items are still on the island and my figures have been returned. Fortuenately the MGR is now in the store but unfortuneately he has less gray matter then then the people working there. Denied again.
Anyone else finding a hold on figs til the DVD release? I can understand if the movie had not been released yet, but this a bit much. One again it confirms that retail does not have the brightest lightbulbs in the business.
