    Then this hot blonde chick saw us (my coworkers and I) messsing with the video cameras and setting off the alarms hooked to them. She started flirting with me, she was really cute.... But, we asked her when Civ was coming out and she told us tomorrow. I was like "kewl, check ya later."

    As I was leaving the really fat geeky guy was asking someone when Civ came out.

    I am such a loser.

          Phone transcript with EB Games (im paraphrasing )

          me: Hello (from my cell phone)

          EB Games (I think): ;dfbv[odfibvql;ejv oWUS'DHFV smNVLQJW;EBRGQA;WLJDBVLAJS, CAN I HELP YOU?

          Me: (irritated because I couldn't make out the garbled and rushed introduction) Hello is this EB Games?

          EB Games: Yes, may I help you?

          Me: Im calling on my CIV IV preorder, I hear rumor it didn't ship till today

          EB Games: That right it didn't ship till tomorrow, er I mean we will get it tomorrow.

          Me: Ok great what time do you usually get your shipments?

          EB Games: Early

          Me; (Irritated again) Whats your definition of early, 10:00AM, 1200 Noon, what?

          EB Games: Usually about 1000, buts its being shipped so we could get it anytime tomorrow but its usually early.

          Me: OK Ill call you tomorrow morning.

              WTH's wrong with that exchange- YOU were irritated. HE has to say that crap up front on the phone. And HE was polite to the end even though YOU were geek #10389432 for him to talk to that day.

              You're lucky someone even answers the phone and it's not a recorded message like:

              ALL GEEKS, please be alerted geek game x will ship x and arrive x MAYBE...

                I called EB and Software etc at 2:50 pm PST and both said tomorrow. This is for the greater San Francisco area.

                My pre-order is being shipped by UPS. So maybe tomorrow.

                  I called President Bush and asked when it will be available at stores in my area. I had to leave a message with his answering service. I'll bet I find the game on my own before he gets back to me.

                      Whats wrong with it is Im talking to a person whose profession is sales, and sales people are supposed to be good communicators, and this "Sales professional" was not.

                      I dont ask for a hell of a lot out of a computer sales person other than can you s p e a k c l e a r l y.

                      I dont care if this guy has to say whatever the heck it is, it is what he is paid to do, so do it properly. he is trying to earn MY money not the other way around.

                            Good to know I'm not suffering alone! Called several local EBs in South Jersey and the answer is invariably:

                            "Tomorrow"
                            Eine Spritze gegen Schmerzen, bitte.

                              Called a different EB in Vancouver BC after work. The guy was much more talkative.

                              2 versions and 2 release dates. Collecters was supposed to come in today. Regular version was supposed to come in tomorrow.

                              Hopefully one or both of them come in tomorrow. However there may be a one day delay at the border if things don't go well.

                              He said he stopped counting how many people called today about Civ4 around 100. Basically said I should come in early tomorrow and pre-order.
