Am working on writing all my experiences down will plonk some on my blog when I get my domain name back
"Do you have Mario 64 on Playstaion"
"No it is owned by Nintendo"
"My mate has it on his"
And "That guy"
The one that says that he has a Playstation 2 and a Dreamcast about a few months before the Dreamcast came out
And normal idiocy along the lines of this
Person wants to sell Gran turismo 2 and wants £10 for it (hadn't been out that long)
Case is nackerd, disc has a crack in it, looks like a sander has been taken to it and it stinks of ciggs
Just before I check the disc the person says "Theres two games in there" (Its a two disc game)
Say "I cant take it in this condition"
"It still works"

One bloke came in with a new sealed ps3 six axxis pad, sticker still on it from zavvi. We asked for his id and he produced some letter from the police that detailed his recent caution for stealing games and accessories from zavvi!
once had a customer trying to trade in a ps3 game that had a massive bite mark in claiming it still worked.
lots and lots of chavvy mums buying gta for their 4 year olds
also once there was a very stinky family, none of them could string a sentence together either, the grandma was shouting at the kid who was about 14 telling her that 'you need to brush your fu#king teeth! no boy will want you with black teeth!' the girl then told her 'its my mouth, dont have to clean it, fu#k off telling me what to do gran' - It was then i actually began to fear for the future of the country My colleague then proceeded to spray air freshner on one of them when they turned to leave the counter

It was fun dealing with the aggressive mothers who frequently end up demanding a refund because the kid doesn't like the game only to be told that we don't offer refunds for crappy games.
We frequently got asked if C64 games would run on Amigas, when we patiently say no and point to the same title on the Amiga shelves the usual reply was "yeah, but that one is more expensive"...
We'd sometimes get people lugging a heavy box into the shop asking if we bought second hand computers. We didn't.
The look of shame on their faces when I suggest that they phone ahead to find a shop that would take it next time rather than lugging all of their stuff across town on a bus usually made my day.
We didn't usually get the excessively smelly types, they tended to hang around Games Workshop.
