This story arc puts me very much in mind of the immortal Gord, who ran a video/computer games store that the youth of the town – and sometimes the not so young – viewed as an informal games arcade. Gord did not mind this so long as they bought something and it did no harm to advertise the gods with a view to making sales. but the two types now standing behind the boys look typical of Gord’s harder bargains, who he dealt with on a “one stroke and you are out” basis.
I reccomend the Word of Gord mightily, to those who have worked in retail and who know the kind of Situations they have to deal with.
It may be found written Here and contains much of wisdom and laughter as it pertains to video and computer gaming stores.
Gord and his customers were Canadian too…
