Last night at work (I work at ASDA Wal*mart) we where preparing for the sales of the Harry Potter book. It was sold at £7.69, the cheapest out of all markets. Anyway.

It was 11:45 pm, and there was a line ending outside the store, to where the book was getting sold. There are currently, 50 checkouts open in the store. And only 8 of them where open, me sadly being on number 27 (very top of the store)

Now, I rant about his because these fucking idiots started dancing and swarming around the shop once the Harry Potter music started playing through the speakers. I'm talking grown men here, I couldn’t give 2 flying fucks if it was a 10 year old. It hit 12:01 am and here we go. Screaming, hugging books, raping them on the way to the tills. We could only sell 2 copy per person and some people where grabbing 4 at a time in places.

They swarmed the check outs like rats to a corpse. Over a book? Really, it's stupid. Because there where so many people there, I took overtime for extra pay (7 pound an hour) and worked, serving these 'things' until 2am. It went really quiet after that and I came into the store for a shop, then turned back realizing I had to fight through mobs of people buying the damn book.

Point is: Harry Potter fans are idiots to do that. I really wouldn’t do something like that over a book. Nothing against the fans who buy it and walk out the store. But the ones who prance about, scream around the store and are fully grown people, it drives me crazy.

Harry Potter is lame. J.K. Rowling is a whore. The fans are prime candidates for the Darwin award.
What you should do, is get all of them into the store, and gas them.

What I had in mind was reading the ending of the book, find out if anyone dies, and take the greeters store mic and tell eveyone over the speakers what happens. But thats my job out the window. I could have made the papers if I had the guts =p

Someone was spoiling it on an IRC server I was in at about 00:03 BST. If you had the guts you should have gotten IRC on the checkouts, would have taken less time =P

I don't like Harry Potter, because I don't like books. But by god, I admire Rowling's work. She actually knows how to make stories that can kick the Halo 2 launch's ass over and over.

I seriously don't remember so many kids excited over READING A BOOK. And that's what I find good. It's a good product that's selling like hotcakes, not some lame shooter-wannabe.

That's very true. There's finally another book series that keeps kids reading, kinda like how the Baby-Sitters Club and Goosebumps series kept the kids of my generation reading.

I do agree, though, that all the rabid fanboys/girls are very annoying and deserve to be shot. Hillarious example included (NOTE: contains the spoiler that everyone's probably wondering about):

Meh, I havent been much of an HP fan (though ive read all the books cept 6 to date). Sure, some of the books are enthralling, but surely you have to truely believe theres a phoenix named Fawkes flying around saving hapless junior wizards and delivering messages for an order. Im a big Terry Pratchett fan though, and that still isnt something i would stay up till 2 AM to get <<

Well, sucks you had to go through that shit Becks

EDIT: XD at that pottercash thar MSM

People who generalise are pricks. The Harry Potter books are good - just because there are dicks who go OTT and ruin it it doesn't mean normal people who read them are idiots. So fuck off, pricks.

Fuck you.

Harry Potter is one of the best books of its kind. I mean, stories for children. The fact that you haven't read it doesn't automatically make it stupid fucktards.

Well, games are far more expensive (and that's not including the console needed to play it), that might explain why. What are the figures anyway (Halo 2 vs. Harry Potter)?

Halo 2 rocks though, why are you saying OMG HALO and calling it a lame shooter-wannabe? Just because Harry Potter sold more, doesn't mean Halo 2 sucks (and it's hard to take such a comment seriously). For one, they're two completely different mediums.

Remember people, if a great load of people like ANYTHING alot, all the people who don't like it automaticly hate it and think everyone who does like it is an idiot. If Harry Potter wasn't famous and someone said to you "I like Harry Potter books" you'd all probably just reply "Ok..good for you." or something. But no it's popular! So you all have to immediately begin hating it and call everyone who enjoys it stupid.
