As to topic, I actually used to have a moment where if someone went inside a GW store just to fuck with GW players and touched our crap that I would think violent thoughts... BLOOD FOR THE GOD THOUGHTS... anyhow, didn't want to give them a permanent ban with my thoughts so I relaxed. They actually wouldn't touch my crap when I started doing wrestling and football in highschool. Perhaps because I was a bit bulkier. The only problem was that they still screwed with other people's stuff. These guys are the people who seriously need to get banned, but usually they don't because they only fuck up your shit and your game they don't usually "permanently" break it. So they are allowed to proceed most of the time.
In my life I've seen quite a few permanent bans. Some where actually redicolous but the ones that were kind of awkward were when you were one of the only few there and stealing was going on. Its kind of hard to deal with that shit. I kind of feel bad for the store clerk. "Excuse me sir, can I check your bags." And you can see in their eyes that they really want to go confronting those stupid people over that shit but they have to. Especially when the store clerks are new, that would kind of blow. Now stores are required to crack down hard and all the way. Cops, parents, jail, everything. Well at least in Illinois.
Some of the stupidest bans I have seen
1. I understand sometimes kids can be very young and stupid but this was pretty redicolous. This kid, probably not even knowing the cost of anything in GW goes into the store alone and creates a pile of shit he wants to buy. I'm actually trying to help the new store clerk by putting them back and putting back all the models he started dispersing from the show case all over the store. I was about to do this but then the store manager came in so I didn't. Someone else told the kid to "Shut... the... fuck... up..." Kid got banned and the little kid didn't buy anything. The guy who told the kid to stfu was a regular there so I actually thought that was too bad. But I think the manager had problems with the guy before. Anyhow, I dislike when store regulars get banned over reasons that don't help the store.
2. I actually think this is funnier more than anything, but one of the employers of one of the GWs runs out of the store and kind of whistles to an attractive lass walking by the store. The guy was a pretty good store employee and regular, its too bad the lady took a great offense to that though. Anyhow, the store was forced to ban him.
