today, i went down to gamestop to reserve a game, and right outside there was a guy playing pokemon sapphire. he looked like he was 35 years old or something, and i think he was waiting on his kid who was still inside the store. but anyway, i just jokingly said "pokemon huh? aint you a bit old for that?" with a laugh. i wasnt laughing at him, just laughing at what i said, because i meant nothing by it.
but wow. this guy totally flipped his lid. he just looked at me funny and was like "whats the matter? cant a guy play pokemon? i wonder what other great games you dont play. going inside to get the new call of duty? why dont you play a real game."
he said a bunch of other stuff, but that was basically the gist of it. i was honestly just speechless. all i did was raise and eyebrow and just walked in the store.
