This one comes with a story.
So the other day, I was linked an article showing off that Walmart was selling Metroid: Other M (a notoriously bad entry to the franchise) for $0.03 USD. That’s right, three pennies. Naturally I did what any insane person would do, and search out the nearest Walmart that had them. The only one in my area where there were any of these was in a hick farm town (or at least as close to that as you can get in MA). So I drive out there, go into Walmart. I get some other stuff, then find the Other M. I check it on the price scanner, and it is indeed 3 cents.
So I go to the quick checkout lane. The cashier rings up my other stuff. She rings up an Other M. Stops. Looks at her screen. Looks at the game. Looks back at the screen. Tries ringing up the other two, sees the same result. She says to me “These games cannot be 3 cents.”
So she calls over the customer service person. She takes a look at the games, tries scanning it, and gets the same result. She calls someone over from electronics to check this out. Meanwhile, I’m trying my hardest not to crack up about the ridiculousness of the situation. Eventually the electronics person comes over, and essentially says “Screw it just let him have them.” So I pay, and head out of the store.
As I’m walking back to my car, a bystander calls over to me saying “Hey are you the guy who just bought those games for 3 cents?” I confirm that I am. “Well how much are those games worth?” I say a couple dollars. “Well, why didn’t you get more?” he says with a grin. I tell him I didn’t need more than one, get into my car, and drive home.
