    Awww.  That's just wonderful...and makes me feel good too.  I lined up at Nintendo World in Rockafeller center at 2:00am this Sunday to wait in line for my Wii. The store opened at 8:00am. 

    I left Nintendo World at 10:15 after buying a Wii and playing with the displays.  I kicked around Rockafeller for about another hour after to check out the sights and sounds.  As I pasted Nintendo World one last time on my way back to Penn station, a young lady started to follow me hurredly, so I stopped to talk with her.

    She pleaded with me to sell my Wii to her.  As it turned out, she had promised her 9 year old son she would get him a Wii on launch day, but Nintendo World...and every other place she knew of had just sold out.  I gave it a moment of consideration...and ultimately decided to sell my brand new unopened Wii to her for retail price.

    I left NY Wii-less, but felt good about myself.  I did get something out of it though - the pretty young lady kissed me on the cheek as a thank you!

    That's great. She showed a niceness that most wouldn't be able to. To put this in perspective... people were shooting each other to get a PS3. Think about it.
