Hey it was no problem! it was in the toy section. I was looking for the new Generations deluxe wave and noticed on the display. I went to the Entertainment department and nothing there so i went back and grabbed it. It didn't ring up though so they had to get a manager to authorize it. Asked me if this has been out for a while. I just said "umm...yes?" he shrugged and activated it!

Hahahaha wow. That manager's gonna be in deep crap when they get smacked with a fine (or at least the threat of one) for selling it early. Not your fault though, nice find!

Dunno if that's exactly news... Yeah, many department stores probably have them in stock already. But how many are going to mistakenly put them out, then to top it off, authorize the sale when it doesn't ring up?

Hey guys, I got lucky and found some G1 TFs at a garage sale for dirt cheap! Everyone go check nearby garage sales and see if you have the same dumb luck! Probably similar odds to the above...

Because it's a sighting of something yet to be released. Maybe 3rd party stuff shouldn't be covered either because it's not official stuff. Christ who shit in your cereal?

not his fault?.. sure it is, he lied.

i'm sorry, it's cool an all that he got it early.. but being dishonest is kind of shitty, especially when something like that has the potential to affect someone's job.

This is a hard point to disagree with. I can see that side of things.

But I'll offer the counterpoint anyway, as someone that spent years working retail and nearly a whole year of that managing an Electronics department that sold DVDs/Games/etc. In those years, a store I was at got fined a four figure amount for selling a DVD early, and the sale only went through due to a manager override (not by me, someone in softlines did it). If you're a manager in an Entertainment/Electronics department and a movie or game will not ring up normally, the first thing that should go through your mind is "this is out too early", the second thing is "was this recalled or were we supposed to send these back to fulfillment for credit on unsold items", and the only other possible thing would be "Does this need an ID check?". If you do what the manager did in the story here, you are bad at your job.

Also, I'd be shocked if this were a fire-able offense anywhere, unless you've got strikes for it already, or you already suck and someone wants a reason to let you go.

This isn't really "Hey everyone, go check your stores because AOE is showing up!" kind of news. It's not a big secret that many stores have it already in back, but very few will screw up and put it out early and even fewer will sell it to you if they just so happen to accidentally put it out. We all know the release date of this already, so that someone f*cked up and one person got lucky isn't exactly news or should lead to "Everyone go check your stores!" If I find 5 bucks on the sidewalk in front of my house, should everyone go out and check the sidewalk in front of their house too? That's the point...

Well everyone knows the release date of this particular release. If someone got it early and wants to let us know we'll share it with everyone. If you want to go check your target to see if you can get it early too it's up to you. I don't think everyone is rushing to the stores and demanding that they sell this to them and I don't see how it hurts anyone.

I was just trying to point out for those that don't know any better that there's little point in rushing out to check your stores considering you told people to "Check your Targets today to see if you can score this highly-anticipated summer blockbuster" in the news post. Good for the dude that got lucky, though.
