I went into GC after work today and there was a kid in short pants with his mommy playing "teh br00tlz" - complete with Diamond Darrell T-Shirt - way too loud with a POS Squier guitar.

I asked him (politely) to turn it down, as I was trying to actually purchase a guitar and his mom started yelling at me. I could tell by looking at the kid he spent most of his time eating cheesy poofs and posting on UG.

So I passed on the guitar I was buying but did pick up a Universal Audio preamp for my studio. I payed in Pro Audio and needed to get some strings.

Junior and his momma were checking out in front of me and the mother's check was declined by the computer. The sales creatin tried to get her to apply for the GC credit card and she got nervous but little junior threw a fit - this kid was about 13 mind you - so she did and was declined. I knew this would be a funny scene, so I had decided to "check out the pedals" instead of paying.

After she was declined she tried to calm the kid down by getting him some magazines. I was in front of them in line by this time and decided to buy the POS $199 guitar the kid had wanted.

The kid freaked out and I thought the mom was going to kill me. LOL!

I told them I needed a guitar for the scarecrow I was making for Halloween in my front yard.

No, I spent $200.00 to teach this kid a lesson. And to make a scarecrow with a guitar - which my wife and son are making right now as I st here with a Hoegarden.

Plus $200 is a small price to pay to see some "evil br00tlz kid" cry with his momma. Everyone in GC was looking at them. Like the ad says, priceless.

wow.... you're a douche.... the kids young, so he can still learn.. but the mom seems like a b*tch....

hahahah. hilarious. if you want to unload that shiz after Halloween PM me, im sure I could make some use out of the body at least.

I was so frustrated after listening to the mother's mouth, the kid's loud playing and then getting stuck behind them I would have bought a Les Paul to piss them off.

I almost smashed it in the parking lot but figured the scarecrow would be funny. I'll probably give the guitar to this kid who lives down the street and babysits for us sometimes.
#16
nice, but I'm 14 and id never do that, so in a way that kinda offended me.

Lets count shall we, the typical UG stereotypes of visiting Guitar Center.
Dimebag Darrel t-shirt (check) trying to play loud poorly (check) and on a crappy Squier (double check), making a scene at GC (check) and being a douche and laughing at other people not having money while you brag about buying an expensive item (check check checkity check). Lets see what the jury has to say about this.

If the kid was 8 I wouldn't have done it. He was like middle school or freshman in high school age.

Temper Tantrums are a pet peeve of mine. If it was my kid I would have knocked them into next week.

Douchy move to buy the guitar the kid wants, but still pretty damn funny story. Props for actually going through with the purchase, and good luck with the scarecrow with the guitar; you should set it up so that some brutal death metal plays out of it while it's just chillin on your lawn. ^_^


Quote by SenorSmiley
Oh yeah, when the mom asked me who I thought I was I told her I was Ed Roman and to google me.


I actually lol'ed at that. If I had room in my sig, i'd totally sig that.
#25
You should give the guitar to some kid who wants one that is nice. nuff said.

Yeah, at first I thought you were just a douche, but as long as you give it to a kid who actually deserves it I think you did a good thing. Taught one kid and his mom a lesson and got a guitar for a kid who actually deserves it. Two birds with one stone, so to speak.

This is UG, we love Schecters and Ibanez and Jacksons, we hate Deans and BCR's, we hate Marshall MG's, and everyone needs a new amp.
#27
I'll be honest, I did it because the mom and kid were losers. Then I thought of the kid who always watches my kids when I need to go out with the wife so next time he he helps out I'll give it to him.
#28
I applaud you. I pride myself in douche-baggery, but you good sir, you take the giant douche-bag shaped cake.
#31
Now sell the guitar to some noob for 250$, and it's not as stupid. Funny sotry nonetheless.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
