My biggest Magic f-up ever

Postby headband » 07 Jun 2013, 20:06

Well, I made the worst Magic based mistake ever, and it wasn't even in a game. I just found out that yesterday, after playing at the local comic shop, I accidentally took the box of Magic cards that was owned by another player thinking it was mine. If that's not enough, since I am leaving for vacation tomorrow, I won't be able to return it to the shop first thing tomorrow to see if I can make it right. My grandma did agree to do that for me, but that still means me inconveniencing more people because of me not even looking in the box to see if my cards and decks were in there and can't even check in on things for over a week. This may be a first world problem, but it is a big one for me, whoever I accedently stole from, the comic store, my grandma and my family who will no doubt have to deal with me more than the whole time. Any advice?

Does the store / player group have a Facebook page or website forum? If so you can post there and explain what happened. Alternatively, if you can call the comic shop and leave a message explaining what happened and letting them know when you'll be able to return it.

Have tried that. There's no one manning the phones right now, but I have emailed and face booked them, but I'm not sure if they'll get any of it before my grandma arrives. I gave her a note that has everything on it to show them to explain everything.

How did it work out? did

Well, just got back from my trip, so I wasn't able to talk about the final twist of this story of how much of an idiot I am. Turns out, I never did take someone else's box, I had my own in my house since that game day. In fact, the mix up was from my brother's box. I accidentally picked up my brother's box o magic cards earlier that night and then got into a panic. It was only an hour before I left for vacation, when I got everything all set up to ix my mistake, that my brother found my box in his room. Yeah, fail all around for me. Had to phone my grandma from the airport to make sure she didn't waist her time, and had to wait til I went to pick up my comics today to rectify things at the store.

So yeah, sorry about all of that, but thanks for the concern. ^^;

Well, at least everything worked out in the end. At a local store we have had to start placing stickers on binders and boxes because some of us just have the same products since we pretty much all shop at the same spot.
