I had trouble finding a job right out of college so I ended up working at a video game store for a while 5 years or so ago.
I am female and at the time was about 22-23. It was a slow evening.
Guy around my age comes in. Disgusting looking.
Smells like a MMORPG player.
Walks around a few minutes and then asks me if I could get something from the very top shelf where all of the oversized crap that no one buys down so that he could look at it.
Pull down a dusty Halo board game.
Him: "Oh wow, that looks so cool. Aww man, I was hoping it would be single player though. All of my friends moved to the north side of town."
Town is like 3 miles north to south, population 45k.
Me: "That sucks. Sorry."
Him: "It looks so cool though, I don't have anyone to play it with me."
Him: "I wish I had someone to play it with me."
He is cut off by his phone going off... and the ringtone is...
I walk a lonely road
The only one that I have ever known
Don't know where it goes
But it's home to me and I walk alone
Him: "Oh. It's my Mom. She's waiting outside. Gotta go! Sorry!"
He then hands me the box and leaves.
I kind of felt sad for him. But, he did smell really awful. So there was a self-curable reason he probably didn't have friends.
