I've been 'herbed' at work

Recommended Posts

Hey gang,

 

I work at an indie video store. Today, I decided to wear my Sega Dreamcast T-Shirt that came with my system as a bonus for buying the system on launch day.

 

A group of young ragamuffins came in. One of them spoke up and said:

 

"Dreamcast? That system is so old! Pfft, they don't even make games for it anymore."

 

I was dumbfounded. An 8 year old, knocking my OG Dreamcast shirt? Being too shocked to come up with an appropriate response, I simply said "I don't really keep up with modern technology, I guess." (Even though I do.)

 

Sonned by an 8-year old. Not one of my prouder moments.

Well you should be proud that you know what "herbed" and "sonned" mean in the context in which you used them, because I have no freaking clue. :wtf: Never heard those terms before.

 

Care to explain for those of us who are not up on the new vernacular?

 

Carlos.

you shoulda explained to those little brats that games are indeed still coming out for the dreamcast since there were several excellent shooters and a new rpg within the last year or so along with some excellent homebrew stuff... it's about the quality, not the quantity ;)

"It had enough what to do what? That's fucking Gay"

 

is the answer I'd be expecting. Idiot kids like that don't actually care about technical abilities, just that they've got machine A, so machines B-Z must be insulted at all possible opportunity. Preferably with added homophobia on the side.

I'm not Herb.

 

 

(I was going to insert picture of Burger King's Herb here but a Google image search only brings up both cover variations of Poison's "Open Up and Say Ahhhh" when searching on "I'm not Herb" which makes me question A) why Herb does not have a page of his own and B) does every Herb has its thorns? )

That is EXACTLY what I thought when I read the title of this thread.
