No games for you!

So, apparently some kids were spending more time on video games than on their studies. So a GameStop manager decided to stop selling them games.

He ended up getting suspended for it, but I think it’s a good idea. In the end, it’s only for the kids’ own good. In fact, the idea ought to be expanded to help more…uh…(shouldn’t say stupid)…educationally challenged people. Even adults.

Alright, there ma’am, you want this particular blender? Now, it’s got sharp parts, can I just see your report card for Handling Pointy Spinny Things? Ah, a D? Too bad.

Okay, sir, you want to buy this engagement ring? Can I just see your Relationship IQ? Ah, that low? Sorry, stupid; get smart, then get married.

Well, before I give you this motor scooter…oh, heck, just go away, man.

…yeah. That’d make life better.

    Indeed.

    When I initially read about this, I thought of the employee as an idiot but I began to realize that it’s kind of a good idea. I agree that if a student has C’s and D’s in school then they should obviously be spending more time studying than playing video games.

    I think it would be great if a video games retailer did something similar, except they would give you like a 15% discount on a game if you have good grades, rather than refraining from selling it to you at all if you have poor grades.

    Either way… Gamestop sucks. I’m going to check at my local Target or Wal-Mart for something game-related before going to that place.

    I think Mr. T set those standards 5,000 years ago.

    Where are the parents in this?

    Or rather, since when do kids not have any self-worth for themselves, and in doing good in their grades for themselves.

    My friends play video games, moderately I guess. I can’t get into them, and I’m just stuck playing tennis all the time. From my standpoint, how hard can it be to just put a little effort into it. That’s all you really need, anyways. Not a full-blown night to study your heart out.

    I sucked at Home Ec. Does this mean I’ll never eat again?
