Reviews for Retail Hell
MadnessJones chapter 1 . 10/21/2016
Now I'm picturing Swindle holding a mob at gunpoint saying "Gimme all your Tickle-Me-Elmos!" Lol XD
What Lies Beyond chapter 1 . 12/4/2015
Great fic! Gotta admit, there are definitely hardcore gamers out there who would probably do this kinda thing. I'm gamer myself, but I'd be far more likely to be the one filming this mess and putting it on YouTube...or AFV. XD

Aside from the PS3, another retail nightmare would be the Hello Kitties and Minions (recent)... Glad Swindle made it back alive. And Vortex hovering like a demented Tinkerbell - LOL xD the mental image xD

OMFP. That was fracking HILARIOUS. Poor Swindle! Never mess with gamers, indeed...

Sary thing is, I can totally see that happening in real ife, crowbars and all.

Love your characterizations, as always. The comparison of a sadomasochistic alien robot interrogator to a 'demented Tinkerbelle' was genius. And 'Tex's oh-so-impressive interrogation techniques was awesome. Repetitive pestering works a lot better than anyone expects.

And Swindle... it's interesting how he ends up as the Butt Monkey in most of your stories, but I adore his snarkiness and long-suffering attitude in your incarnation. Then again, with brothers like his, who could blame him?

Fantastic, as always.



Um, and on a different note, are you... dead? I sincerely hope not, but...

Gah, that wasn't really fitting for a review, but if you're reading this... somewhere... please post/update soon!

-Falls over cracking up!- No really, I couldnt stop laughing! It was so funny! Never Mess with Gamers! This is made of WIN! Good job on this!
Meirelle chapter 1 . 7/9/2009
XD "I'm here for your Wiis."
Younger Than the Soul chapter 1 . 6/7/2008
...oh my GOD that was hilarious!

Yeah if I were waiting in line for a PS3 I would have been part of that squishie stampede.

You genius, it's the clever little things that get me (looked at him with the optic of a conniseur...threw it away, "Tickle-My-Elbow"). You're like the TF Terry Pratchett. Gah. I wish I was HALF as quick.

Anyways, thanks for the story and the chuckle.

I gotta send a link to this to all my gamer friends! They'd get a freakin' kick out of it! Poor Swindle. Good to see him get the limelight for a change, but ouch! Looks like he'll be more careful around gamers in the future.

I just love this one. The look on Swindle's face when he got mobbed... XD
mystic-nin chapter 1 . 10/4/2007
ā€˜Iā€™m here for your Wiis!ā€™

so effing true...
Death Scribe chapter 1 . 10/4/2007
*giggles* I don't blame Swindle. It's kind of embarrassing to say that name out loud. I'd probably laugh myself sick if I heard a giant evil robot say that they want a 'wii'.
Jason M. Lee chapter 1 . 10/4/2007
*ROFLMAO* At least he didn't have THAT problem when MP Megatron came out and eBay went on the fritz of "OHNOES! NO ORANGE PLUG! CLOSE THE AUCTIONS!" regarding Megatron's gun mode, if what Matt Moylan's comic has to say. XD
