So, Blackwalt had given me a Walmart raincheck for 2 copies of Borderlands.

Here's my saga of acquiring them.


Not much to tell really. Just stopped at the Orleans Walmart on my way to making my final payment on my bathroom.

Me: "You have any Borderlands?"
Clerk: "Yeah."
Me, showing him the raincheck: "Will you honor this?"
Clerk: "Yeah."
Me: "Good, I'll take 2."
Clerk: "Only two left."
Woman who was talking on a cell phone and had been visibly looking for something in the Xbox games section: "Dammit!"
...
Clerk: "This raincheck is pretty old..."
Me: ....
Clerk: "I'll need a manager to override the price, gimme a sec."
Clerk on the PSA: "CSM needed at games department."
.....
5 Minutes
...
Clerk on the PSA: "CSM needed at the games department!"
...

Well, you get the gist of it. Took about 15 minutes for a "CSM" to come over and use his magical key.

So, I am now the owner of 2 copies of Borderlands for a wee bit over $90CDN.

Who wants to buy the extra ?

$39.99 plus municipal, provincial, federal, and school tax. All yours for $69.98.

Kidding... $45 is fine.

Will you be attending the "gathering" at Coxxorz' place next week? I can grab it from you then, unless you are in kanata at some point during the week in which case i can meet up with you whenever it works...

I will try to make it to Coxxorz place next week. Chances are good, but ultimately my family will decide for me.

I'm surprised they honoured it, being a different store than what's on the raincheck.
