Fallout 76 Owner Destroys GameStop Store Over Inability To Return Game
Work in retail, they said. It will be fun, they said. Those employed in the retail industry deal with quite a bit on a daily basis, and while a great portion of it is positive, some customers can become less than pleasant. Such is the case with one gamer who recently attempted to return his copy of Fallout 76.
It’s unknown why the customer was looking to return the title to GameStop, but it would appear that the store’s return policy was not ideal for them. When told that he could only receive store credit due to no longer having his receipt, the customer became angry and decided the best course of action would be to cause a little havoc. They began to destroy the store from the inside, pushing over displays, ensuring that their rage was known. Check it out for yourself in the video below:

Luckily, it was only product that was damaged in this instance, as things could have become much worse were the customer to inflict violence towards the manager. Speaking of which, can we give Brian a round of applause for remaining calm and collected throughout the altercation? Near the end of the clip, they can even be heard answering the phone in a friendly manner that didn’t indicate the carnage that had just taken place.
Of course, the internet had a few things to say about the incident.

I also cannot blame him, but I feel really bad for the clerk.
