Now this is a bit strange. Normally, when one purchases a DS, he/she would probably expect to find a handheld inside. But for one 16-year-old, that was not the case at all. When Jodi Wykle’s son opened up his new DS box, a pile of rocks and a Chinese newspaper were found.
Wykle bought the system at Wal-Mart, but the store would not refund give a refund. According to the store, the item had never been returned and said that Nintendo should be contacted. However, it was her son’s birthday, so the lady bought another system. Just to be sure that rocks were not in the new DS box, Wykle forced Wal-Mart to look inside before making a purchase.
Wykle reached out to Nintendo, though this was of course Wal-Mart’s problem. Fortunately, after national representatives were contacted, she was refunded for her initial purchase and was also given a $20 gift card.
Thanks for the news tip, Jake.
