Rocks at $138.00
« on: April 29, 2009, 11:33:11 PM »
Jodi Wykle knew her son would be thrilled when she gave him a new Nintendo DS for his birthday.

Instead, he was rocked.

According to WTSP-TV, the confused teen opened up his gift only to find bunch of stones and a rolled up Chinese newspaper in place of the popular handheld.

All I got was a rock.

Needless to say, mom was equally stunned.

"When he opened it, he was pulling the seal off, my sister-in-law carries a pocket knife and she opened it and that's when he pulled it out and it was Chinese newspaper and a bunch of rocks," she explained.

The troubling discovery prompted the Florida woman to contact the local Wal-Mart where she bought the curious box and complain, but reportedly workers there told her it wasn't their problem and that she should contact Nintendo instead. Of course, Nintendo told her roughly the same thing, leaving mother and son with a $138 box of rocks.

"They don't want to do nothing. They want me to keep the box of rocks. I'm not buying a box of rocks for $138," she said.

Amazingly enough, however, Wal-Mart soon caved after learning that the same box of rocks had been previously returned by another disgruntled customer. How exactly it made it back onto store shelves remains a mystery, but for her troubles, Wykle was given a full refund and a $20 gift card.

It's not the first time Wal-Mart has gotten into hot water for selling a questionable handheld. Earlier this month, a PSP system bought at a different Wal-Mart store in Florida was found to contain a memory stick filled with pornographic images.

Gatinapulang siguro ang Customer Service counter kay dapat i check man unta na nila kon naay items i return.  Kon naka return ang customer with just rocks inside the box, that's crazy. 

Unya, di ba diay pod ka mag check sa box na imong paliton kon wa bay cracks or something?  Basin gadali tong Mama gapalit sa Nintendo DS.

Nakasuway na pod mi ani.

Ang among shipment nga Scholl footwear gi abrehan ug labor didto sa port, unya gipolihan sa iyang bolingit nga tsinelas.

Pag abre sa among customer mi file dayon ug complain ug gi report mi sa ministry of health kay ang tsinelas nga bolingit nagdala ug daghang kagaw.
