No games for underachievers at GameStop

GameStopThis guy’s heart is in the right place, but he still doesn’t really get it.

A GameStop manager in South Dallas has decided to play the role of a Saturday morning cartoon superhero by keeping videogames out of the hands of children who are not doing well in school. The rule he has enacted (which is clearly in breach of company policy) prevents youngsters from purchasing any game of any kind without adult verification of their scholastic success.

His reasoning is, "to me it’s worth it, because the kids understand that somebody cares."

On the other hand, he has also proclaimed, "If you give me straight As with your teachers signature endorsing it and your parent up here, I’ll buy you a brand new game."

My take on the situation is this: kids with bad grades will go buy their games at Walmart. They sell out less often, anyway. Kids with straight A’s will get free games at GameStop.

The store manager in question…will probably be fired.
