What is he doing looking at Pokemon games

Rate this Entry
So earlier I was in Xtra vision with my little brother and sister. They were looking at some DVDs and the posters and K found myself looking through the DS games. They had nearly none, but I did see Pokemon Black and I was tempted to pick it up. I know it's pretty bad I haven't even played it yet, but oh well.

Anyway, I picked it up and was considering buying it when I noticed the guy working there. He was standing close by and he gave me the filthiest look when he realised I was looking at Pokemon games. To be honest, I felt pretty embarassed and there really isn't any reason why I should have. None of his business what I want to buy or not, and to make it so obvious was really annoying.

In the end, I put it back and left with my siblings. I brought them to this sweet shop across the road and let them pick out some things. I didn't want anything cause I was still pissed off about the man working there, and I just didn't feel like it.

It's really annoying to think that everyone still sees Pokemon as a ridiculous children's game. There's no reason why I, or anyone else, should be scrutinised for liking a different kind of game. This is the reason why I ignore Pokemon titles in Game or Game Stop, and not the ridiculous prices. I don't want to have to resort to Amazon because of the judgemental douchebags.

    Sorry to hear that. :/ That was very rude of the employee if he really was judging. And no, nobody should feel ashamed of liking to play a video game.

    Aw, you should have gotten it. He might have been staring at you because he knows you have yet to play BW 2, and is outraged that it has taken you so long.

    If someone looks like they're judging me, I just think "am I going to see them ever again?"

    Wow that's super rude of an employee to do if that is indeed what he was doing, people have every right to play games they like. You should have bought it, who cares what the store worker thinks. I go out an buy Pokemon games when they're out and dont care at all what others think.

    I doubt he was giving you dirty looks because of that, after all you could have easily been considering buying it for a little brother or sister etc. Maybe he got the impression you were just hanging around and weren't really gonna buy anything.

    Don't worry, ma blog is open to all nationalities. Even Irish.

    I used to feel like that before, but now I don't really care. Why should I care what some dude in a game store thinks about me, or what I buy? Why should I feel some need to impress some person I'm never gonna meet again? Just don't care.

    If you're a pokemon fan, you have to learn to not give a shit about other peoples' opinions of you.

    You shouldn't have cared about what he thought, you should have gotten it because you wanted to, I would have given him a filthy look or even pointed a finger because well.. The guy can shove off.

    Although I have never really gotten this reaction before, ever when I have looked at Pokemon games. Hell half of the time when I am buying it I usually get into a conversation about Pokemon with the employer (It helps when it's a cute checkout girl, like at Toys R Us)
