I went to the midnight release of the New 3DS at my local GameStop. I went in to make sure that they'd have extra of what I want at around 10:00 PM. This is how the conversation went down.
Me: Hey, I was wondering if you're going to have any extra of the special edition Zelda New 3DS at midnight for people without a pre-order?
Me: Oh, how about the Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate New 3DS?
Employee: Not if you don't have a pre-order, nope.
Me: Well...will you have any of the regular New 3DS at midnight?
Employee: We didn't get any of those in.
Me: No way that's true, but aight. Do you have Majora's Mask 3D Limited Edition?
Me: Okay, how about the limited edition of Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate?
Employee: No, only if you have a pre-order.
Me (at this point I'm completely annoyed): Well can I go ahead and get the regular edition of either of those games at midnight?
Employee: No, we didn't get many copies of Monster Hunter and what copies we got of Majora's Mask are for pre-orders. (He said this with a minimum of 30 copies of Majora's Mask behind him, btw)
Me: Okay. I'll go in Target, Best Buy, and Toys R Us tomorrow and hope I get lucky. I have a pre-order for Ike, Sonic, and Mega Man amiibo. Do you have any of them in?
Employee: Let me check if we have Ike. *Five minutes later* sorry, it appears we didn't anticipate the demand of the amiibo you ordered so we won't be getting any in for you. I'll refund you on your Power Up card.
Me: I pre-ordered them with cash.
Employee: Sorry, this is how it is.
MANNNNN I'm irritated rn
