How a barber ruined GTA for a young boy.
I'm an ex paintballer, but thought I'd share this 'cute' story.. and not having any accts on video game forums, I thought why not here.
Months ago I was getting my haircut at my local barber. One of the barbers told everyone in the shop a story about how a mother brought her son in to get his hair cut. The Barber, being the good barber he is, asked the boy about his favorite things and hobbies.. and of course video games came up.
Barber: What system do you play on?
Boy: xbox 360!
Barber: "Which games do you like?"
Boy: "I like Grand Theft Auto!"
So at this point the barber looks up at the Mom who's sitting across in the waiting chair.
Barber: "You let your boy play Grand Theft Auto?!"
Mom: "yes... I mean.. why not?"
Barber: "Well let's put it this way, would you let your son watch a movie where a guy carjacks someone, drives to a brothel, has sex with a hooker then kills her?"
Mom: "That's what happens in that game?! HE'S NEVER PLAYING THAT AGAIN!!!"
Needless to say, I don't think the kid will want to go the barber again... or maybe he'll ask to switch to a hair salon *grin*
And remember: It's always a great day for hockey.
