I was talking last night with an acquaintance who works for one of the big networked gaming companies.
He was in the front office the other day when some customers arrived in person. This is never a good thing at a place like that. They arrived in force: four very typical young East Asian So Cal kids, spiky hair and Nikes and sunglasses and looking tough. There was a ringleader and his three homies backing him up.
“WHO THE FUCK ARE YOU?” said the alpha customer?
“I”m Firstname Lastname and I work here, how can I help you?”
“YOU CANCELLED MY ACCOUNT, ASSHOLE. WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU THINK YOU’RE DOING?”
“Okay, give me your account name and I’ll find out.”
The account name was “Homogay”.
“Sir, you might have some idea why we cancelled that.”
“THAT’S MY NAME, MAN! THAT’S MY FUCKING NAME!”
The guy said his name was something like Hernando Omogay.
“Sir, do you have ID on you today so I can verify that?”
“No! Fuck you!” etc etc
As the guy left he asked if they were hiring, because he had always wanted to work there.
