    What fucking idiots live on this planet!?

    "Here's an item of post-holiday hilarity from NeoGAF's HUELEN10. It may stretch credibility a bit, but it's a great story regardless of veracity!

    According to HUELEN10, some neighbors with whom he is casually acquainted informed him that they had just given their kids a Wii for Christmas, and then solicited game recommendations. HUELEN10 suggested a few retail games as well as the Sega Master System version of Sonic the Hedgehog 2. Unfamiliar with the Virtual Console, the mother asked for further explanation, which HUELEN10 offered, saying, among other things, that it requires the user to "put in her credit card when prompted on the Shop Channel, and get the amount of points she wanted."

    Which she did, unfortunately. Some time later, the mother called her neighbor, furious that their new Wii had been broken by following his advice. She put the credit cards into the Wii, just like he said.

    Right into the disc slot.

    And when one didn't work, she went ahead and jammed two more credit cards in there. Now, with three unusable credit cards and one busted Wii, she has demanded that HUELEN10 pay for repairs.

    Look forward to a new warning screen on Wii games, right after the Health and Safety screen and the wrist strap warning!"

    That reminds me of when a man bought a new computer and brought it back the next day complaining that the N64 cartridge does not fit inside the floppy disk slot.

    I remember a letter to Nintendo Power many an era ago, where the kid's younger brother put pennies into the slot of the SNES, thinking it was a pay-to-play system. ....yeah...XD

    What a moron,

    A. for bad directions

    B. For the lady not paying attention, I mean when does the Wii shop channel tell you to literally insert the credit card.

    I lol'd. I mean, the advice wasn't that vague, but you have to be a very stupid person to put a credit card inside the wii slot.

    I broke my first Wii in a very similar way. After having sex with it, I removed my penis and inserted a credit card to pay for the "service". Never did get my card back. I just figured it didn't accept American Express. [​IMG]

    I doubt this is real, I mean for starters does the Wii have a credit card slot?!? NO!!

    It only has SD/HCSD card slot.
