No Nintendo Wii for me… yet.

For those who don’t know me, I’m a video game enthusiast. Though I don’t get to play as much as I’d like due to blogging on the subject, I was really looking forward to the new Nintendo that launched on Saturday. Well I didn’t get one due to outstripped supply, and I’m pretty bummed.

Here’s a snippet from my sob story: “Everywhere I go strangers are right there beside me asking the same questions: ‘Have any Wii’s in stock? Know when you’ll get more?’ Customer service departments aren’t even transferring me to electronics anymore. They snap at me in curt fashion not allowing any inquiries, ‘No, we don’t’ have any Wiis, and we DON’T know when we’re getting more!!!'”

The nerd in me will keep trying.
