The Little Guy got a Wii game from Santa for Christmas. When he opened it, he realised that
a) it had a Best Buy sticker on it, and
b) Santa (or Best Buy) had left the security case on.
At least I think it's the security case 'cause no one in our family or neighbo(u)rhood can crack it. We've tried brute force, scissors (with just a minor flesh wound), pliers, and a hammer. Actually the hammer was caught mid-air due to the potential to damage the entire contents of the case.
To the Best Buy question, I explained that when Santa gets really busy, companies like Best Buy and Toys R Us make toys to help him. Or was it that Santa makes all the toys around the world and companies like Best Buy and Toys R Us get them from him too?
The security case was not so smooth however.
Me - Oh gosh, I hope I can find the receipt.
LG - You get receipts from Santa?
Me - Oh, was that a gift from Santa? I can't remember who gave what. (Think, think, think.)
LG - Yes. What are we going to do?
Me - Hmmmm. Perhaps we can just go to Best Buy and tell them what's happened.
Man-Child - If you don't have a receipt, won't they think you stole it? (Thank you, Man-Child.)
Me - (Argh...). Surely it would have set the security alarms off though?
All - Hmmmm.
We then came to the conclusion that, hidden in the bar code, there is information as to where the game originates. If it's from Santa they will know it's not stolen.
Having found the receipt, I went back to Best Buy (with LG in tow) and explained our predicament to the nice girl at Customer Service. I was hoping that the mention of Santa would also clue her in to my personal predicament, which it did. She pointed to the receipt and asked "Oh, is this the letter from Santa?"
The Wii game was indeed still in its security case so she quickly unlocked it for us and we were on our way.
Unfortunately the console/hand-held thingy we got for the Man-Child to join in wasn't the right one - but they failed to notice that until they had ripped it from its plastic packaging and rendered it un-returnable!
