I hate video game store clerks (12)

I went to the mall a couple days ago and went in to Gamestop to see if they had a new copy of a game for the DS I wanted. They said they did, then proceeded to search through one of their cabinets. They pulled out a bag with an instruction booklet. I asked if they had any unopened copies. They didn't. I said, "That's alright, I don't want it."

The guy responded with, "What, because it's not in shrink wrap?" "I hate having crap on new games like stickers on the box and booklet and stuff," I replied. The male clerk said "Are you serious?" while the female clerk said something like "Wow" and proceeded to laugh. I walked away, annoyed, and took my business to Electronics Boutique where they happened to have an unopened copy of the game.

My question is, what the hell is it with young kids these days? Nobody cares about product presentation anymore. Nobody cares about the condition or quality of a physical game product. Why do stores sell opened and mangled game at new prices, when I might as well just get a used game? Also, what position is a clerk at some shitty video game store in to laugh at their customers over how they prefer a product?

I hate this new trend in the video game market where it doesn't matter what shape a new game comes in, all we care about is getting the game itself right?
