Video Game Freak Gets A Kick Out The Latest Fad

Aug 17, 2007
Trixy is a young woman who loves the latest fads. She likes to walk through the stores and look at the latest gadgets. She especially had a passion for the latest video games. She had them all. She was always one of the first in line when something new came out. So it was no surprise that she was first in line when the Supertron 35 came on the market.

It was a limited production and very popular. It did everything and everybody wanted one. She decided she would make her purchase from the local giant retailer. She knew the type of crowd she would be facing, trying to get one of the games. These people were maniacs and would do crazy things to get a game.

She wanted to avoid all that. She knew she had to be one of the first in line, so she could get her game and get out of there. She went down to the retailer a few hours before they were to open. To her surprise people were already in line for the game. She thought that is ok I can still get one. I am not too far back. So she went up and waited.

The line grew longer. In fact it was longer than she had ever seen. She knew some of the people would be sorely disappointed. There was not going to be enough games to go around. People even resorted to buying places in line for huge amounts of money. She had a few offers but refused. She really wanted the game.

Finally the doors opened but the manager would only let a few people in at a time. Eventually her turn came. After she went inside the manager announced that they were sold out of the Supertron 35. People became angry but they did not leave. They waited for people coming out to try and buy their game.

She purchased her game and left the store. When she got outside people who wanted to purchase her game immediately surrounded her. She refused to sell it. Most of them went back to the store door to wait for the next customer. There was one couple who continued to try and talk her out of the game. She refused.

They were persistent. They came up with all types of excuses. Finally the guy said if you want give us the game, we will just have to take it. We offered you all kinds of money, so give it to us now. She said no. The guy grabbed her bag and tried to take her game. Something came over her and she kicked the guy in the groin.

He fell to the ground and she was able to escape to her car and call the police. When the police arrived she told them what happened. They questioned a few people in the crowd and established that it was self defense. The guy was ticketed for disturbing the peace. Trixy was released to go home and enjoy her game.

Fads can sometimes make people do strange things. The quest to own the latest is a never ending trend in American society. People have been known to steal, injure and even kill to possess the latest electronic gadgets. Why people will endure freezing weather to own the newest video game is still an unexplained phenomenon.
If fad a maniac approaches you, kindly refuse their offer but be prepared to defend yourself if necessary.
