this is not a post about gaming



although it might sound like one at first ... i went to the video game store today ... i had a game in mind ... LA noire ... it was just released ... it was a highly anticipated game ... from the infamous rockstar games ... and the reviews all came in ... the game doesn't disappoint ... BUY IT NOW ... and me being the mindless drone that i am ... said ... OK ... i put it on my to do list ... which brings me back to my story ... today after work i drove over to the store ... i walked over to the new release shelf ... scanned the titles ... hmmm no LA noire ... so i asked the store clerk if they had it ... the conversation went something like this ... fee game jdeede nizlat isimha LA noire ... the guy nodded and said eewa mamnoo3a ... doesn't surprise me ... rockstar games always get banned ... anyway i was like oh mamnoo3a ya3ni ma 3indkum yaha ... and to my surprise he pulled it from under the counter and put it out there in front of me ... oh baby ... i was like tayeb ana jai ashtareeha ... so as he punched the transaction on his little screen ... i noticed he had a limited edition box edition of castlevania lord of shadows ... not quite a new release but also a game which was on my to buy list ... so i was like 3indak il 3adiye ... because usually limited edition box sets tend to be more expensive than the standard release ... and he's like tara nafs si3r il 3adiye ... i was like oh baby ... and replied ma3nato hai kaman ma3aha ... aaaaaaaaand here's where the story begins ... this guy walked in to the store ... this particular guy had tried to walk in earlier when i was still waiting outside for the store to open ... you see it was still prayer time when i arrived ... and as i stood outside waiting this same guy had tried to enter the store but the door was still locked ... so he left ... me ... i stayed there waiting for the doors to open ... anyway ... he came in and asked wislat? ... then he saw my game on the counter and his face lit up ... wislat wislat ... then the weirdest thing happened ... the clerk told him hadi a5er nus5a wil rajjal kan 7ajizha min ams ... what that's not true ... but i didn't say anything ... and kept a straight face ... eeh wallah kan 7ajizha min ams 7atta jani thalath marrat yis2al 3anha ... the guy became very sad and was like tab ana ashtareeha minno and he laughed and gave me a pat on the shoulder ... inside my head i'm thinking what if he's serious ... i could stand to make some serious profit ... but i just smiled and told him hard luck ... and he's like la 3adi ... anyway i left ... pondering what the fuck just happened ... why did the clerk lie like that ... i'll never know ... anyway i haven't played any of them ... i'm saving LA noire for the weekend tomorrow ... i did open the box set though ... it comes with a soundtrack cd ... also this cool little mask that you can use as a display decoration ... i found a picture of it online ...

You're a lucky guy then...just like I would have predicted. Funny thing luck is...I am mostly unlucky. In your story I would be the gal missing out on the game!! I feel sorry for the guy tsk tsk tsk...he must have hated you
