Waiting behind you at the grocery store. Idling next to you at the red light. Sitting across from you at the restaurant. Idiots. They walk among us. Still reeling from his brush with insufferable dumbness, NeoGaf game forum member HUELEN10 shares the following tale of just such person, which is sadly stupid enough to be true. Seems his neighbors got their kid a Wii for Christmas, sans games, and came to him seeking wisdom. HUELEN10 was kind enough to recommend some titles, among them a few old school VC gems.
“Anywho, the Mom asks me what VC is, and I told her. I told her that all she needed to do was put in her credit card when prompted on the Shop Channel, and get the amount of points she wanted. I also told her what WiiSpeak is, and how to connect her Wii to the internet via an ethernet connection.”
“Anywho, I got a call today from the mom telling me that the Wii is not working. I asked what was wrong and you won’t believe it………
SHE PHYSICALLY PUT 3 CREDIT CARDS INTO THE DISC SLOT.
HOW STUPID DO YOU HAVE TO BE?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!”
“Also while putting the Wii Speak on top of her sensor bar, she apparently cracked it open. Just ugh. I told her she has to cancel her cards and call Nintendo for a 75USD repair, and now she expects ME to pay for this. Her husband is on my side of the issue, but she is steaming at me right now. Seriously, she put in 1, and thought that that one could not be accepted, so she kept putting them in and they will not come out. I might try to remove them tomorrow with her hubby while she is away on a business trip.”
I can’t wait to see this covered in the next manual!
