In another life used to work in a Futureshop (bestbuy) one day a dude came in with wire cutters cut the security thingy and stole a PS3, this dude was so stealthy by the time anyone noticed he was already halfway out the door

Wouldn't that set off the spider wrap? I feel like it'd be easier and quieter to just bring a real strong magnet.

IIRC, strong enough magnets would set off alarms at the door.

Similar story here, a woman came in and opened a roomba, put it under her jacket and went out. Forgot the charger tho.

Also a JBL boombox, the BIG one, put it in sport bag and walked out, a bit embarrassing to us. And then 2 32" Samsung TVs, one after the other. Said they were going to service center when passing the till (its on the other side of the wall) but just walked out the door there instead.

Last 2 happened within a week, with the same cashier. She learned after that.

I used to work at a Futureshop too. Crazy what you’d see people steal. We caught staff stealing and had someone who stole more than one laptop. I think they were taking them one at a time and kept visiting the store.

Joystick drift will turn any man into a beast.

ID: hfyfkze

Joystick drifted so much that it pushed the entire controller out of the box.

My issue is trigger tension. Looser than a greased pig sliding through a lubed water slide covered in Teflon. I barely touch the trigger and it activates

It looks like they just took a bite out of the box. That’s what my imagination is going with along with “ommmmm nom nom” sounds.

Maybe only “wanted” the controller. But needed the arm and leg it would have cost otherwise.

How much are they? I recently bought a new Xbox controller and it was like $90 wtf is that nonsense

ID: hfx557q

60$. Occasionally on sale for 50$

ID: hfy4j7k

Red one is $74.99 where I’m at

ID: hfz7v55

A new PS5 controller is $70 USD.

One thing I never understood is why do conteollers cost so much

ID: hfx3fum

Because sony dont make profit selling the console, but with the games, subscription and of course extra controller.

ID: hfx9dj4

The sad part is I know your right. I knew this already. I just keep telling myself controller's should be priced better. Smh

ID: hfydxu4

I've no idea what they cost to manufacture but controllers are getting more and more advanced.

The PS4 ones have lithium-ion batteries, Bluetooth, built-in speakers, an accelerometer, a gyroscope, a touchpad, vibration motors and LEDs. The PS5 ones added a microphone, adaptive triggers and nuanced haptic feedback. A not-insignificant amount of tech.

ID: hfx2xd0

Because they can

ID: hfx9aup

Lol that's fair

ID: hfy4lw6

Same argument for the dude who went ham on the box.

ID: hfy7c5s

Honestly? It's because everything is expensive to make by default. The only reason anything good is ever cheap is because someone figured out a clever way to make it, and consumers don't appreciate this. For most everything else, it's either compromise quality or compromise price.

He clearly could not control himself…

This is nothing. Back when, they had controllers in those plastic packages that would turn into razor blades when you cut them open. One time, I saw one ripped open at Walmart with blood all over it and the rack. I feel like the dude deserved that controller after that.

ID: hfyki2e

Dude could probably sue and win

ID: hfyjgff

That pain and hassle worth the $50?

I guess to each their own.

Looks like they chewed into it

No price? I guess it's free.

Having worked in retail for years, controllers were the most stolen game related merch. We had to lock them behind glass, or in heavy plastic containers. One time I saw this happen, except there was also a lot of blood, that was back when controllers were in the plastic packaging...

How do we know the controller didn't claw its way out with adaptive triggers and then shimmy outta there using haptics.

14 : Anonymous2021/10/08 23:41 ID: hfx1ymk

I guarantee that box was empty too. Like I see it has the security lock on it but like, my GameStop has that yet they are sold out of controllers

Fair play, thinking outside the box!

At my school we had to go to practice in a store chain (I'm in an economic profile in highschool) and there have been A LOT of this kind of people, one stole a pair of boxers from a pack of five, other stole all the balloons from a pack and left behind the pack, one stole only the cover of a laundry basket(I can't even imagine how they managed that) and many other similar incidents on only one week

Dude, people steal the weirdest things. I worked at a book store (not that one) and easily the most stolen books were YA Fiction and Bibles. There were these little vials of frankincense and myrrh in the religious section, and one night we found that someone had opened and presumably drank all of them. Another night we found that someone had ripped the tags off a dozen of these cheap little $.50 key ring doodads and stashed the tags behind a book shelf. People are weird and petty.

As a black man, that was done by a black man.

18 : Anonymous2021/10/08 23:01 ID: hfwwxdg

I feel like he should be allowed to keep it at this point.

Regardless I wouldn’t wanna be the one to try and get it back from him haha.

ID: hfwx7wx

Whoever it is may chew through you like they did that box!

ID: hfx7j7z

Yeah looks like they took a bite out of it huh. That or they have vice grip hands. Dont wanna mess with that.

ID: hfxblxv

Yeah, imagine what this guy must be like with the strength to rip cardboard. Probably as tall as he is wide with a neck the same width as his hips.

I've seen this before working in retail with an Xbox controller.

21 : Anonymous2021/10/09 08:49 ID: hfym4qr

I don't know, it looks like a prison escape to me.

Edit: or a beginning of one.

I think it's pretty clear they didn't have any self control.

Years in Walmart electronics dept. this happened everyday. I'd come in and the overnight staff would show me all the items cut open around the alarms. Once a guy tried to tear open a cellphone plastic package with his teeth. Slipped and sliced his lips and cheek about 2 to 3 inches, blood everywhere. Overnight associate was laughing so hard telling me the story.
