    The only store in this town that actually has a decent library of games. The only store in town that had Fire Emblem Awakening.

    I'd have just gotten the digital copy :P
    But that's fair. Though I rarely buy games at a Department store or Gamestop. I'll go to some self owned places, but usually I just order everything online. :D

    But all in all, that is very strange. Maybe they were trying to tell YOU something? XD

    Did you took a shower before going out to buy games? ...that seems like a indirect message from the store :P

    (they want to send you to space cause there's no atmosphere there ...so the gases will also dissipate ..meaning, no odors)

    Showered last night before bed. Iono, I get the feeling that they put it in there by mistake.

    That new rad hangout.
    Maybe it's just a promo they're having, did they have any AXE commercials on the TVs in the store?

    No, nothing.

    From a Google search they are have been doing a promo for quite some time involving handing out Axe samples to gamers. Gets gamers to become more hygienic, as well as advertise Axe.

    I once bought a Zelda backpack from some punk store and found a blow-up doll in the front part.

    Yep it's a great place to get games. Hell of a lot more stock than any other store and the same price as everyone else (or cheaper slightly if you go used).
    People still have a biased and pointless grudge against EB games/Gamestop for no particular reason other than that other people hype up the hate more than the chain genuinely deserves?

    gg you're ignorant.

    It's a promotion, the EB games near me also gives out AXE samples whenever a new one is released.

    Could be a prank they put it in your bag telling you that you stunk.

    Once I got a box of Animal Crackers in my bag. I had been at an art supply store buying a sketchbook.

    Between insane and insecure
    I've never gotten anything I didn't expect to get.
    I have gone to Target and this really cute cashier was flirting me and ended up giving me a massive discount on some of my Pokemon decks I was buying. I didn't even notice he did it until I got home several hours later when I looked at the receipt.
    I guess that was strange because according to the receipt I bought like 8 packs of cards and 3 decks, when I really bought 5 packs.
