  • Florida teen finds rocks in Nintendo DS box

    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.

    Sad and unfortunate!
    This is trick use by criminal and shoplifters.. Buy the product, open it and replace with similar weight and then use shrinkwrap to reseal.
    A couple of women were busted in our area doing the same thing.. somehow they were caught and then survellence tapes showed the same trick was used at several of the same stores over and over..

      That's not Walmart's fault though.. that's from the company that makes the game systems. See when someone's game system breaks down and they send it off to be repaired, you don't normally get the same system you sent in back but a refurbished one instead... that's why they can do it so dang quickley. It sounds to me like some folks working in packaging at Sony and Nintendo need to be fired for stealing to me.
      Don't worry that it's not good enough for anyone else to hear... just sing, sing a song.sigpic
