I worked for a game store in Dublin and the state of the back rooms was a disgrace, but stuff was never stored in the toilet.

I've been bracing myself for a fanboy console joke involving this......but so far so good.

Wow, that image of a wii besides the toilet is perfect.

Clerk:"Excuse me while I take a wii".

Customer:"Why the hell are you telling me that?"

Clerk:"I'm taking a wii in the toilet".

Customer:"Why the fuck are you telling me that???"

While this grosses a lot of people out. It's no better or worse than putting it anywhere else. Guess what? the entire world is covered in fecal matter and urine. Hell. Mythbusters did a test about fecal matter on toothbrushes kept near the toilet, what did they find?

 

 

"MythBusters Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage uncovered the dirty truth to this myth by covering a bathroom with 24 toothbrushes, two of which they brushed with each morning — the others they simply rinsed every day for a month.
 
As experimental controls, the MythBusters kept two untainted toothbrushes in an office far away from the lavatory. At the end of the month-long trial, they sent their toothbrush collection to a microbiologist for bacterial testing.
 
Astonishingly, all the toothbrushes were speckled with microscopic fecal matter, including the ones that had never seen the inside of a bathroom. The confirmed myth unfortunately proved that there's indeed fecal matter on toothbrushes — and also everywhere else."

 

NO WHERE IS FREE FROM POO!

 

Now, you might be thinking. "Well, surely the amount of fecal matter found on the brushes kept near toilets was a lot more than the control", right? Not really.

So, your ok with your console falling into the toilet (whether it has fecal matter or not in it doesn't matter according to you) then is sold to you for the exact same price or a higher price than a console from a different store that wasn't in a bathroom?

As long as its not damaged in any way. Sure. But if it falls into the toilet, it probably has water damage.

Right, "water" damage. Gotcha.

Like I said before. Everything in your house is almost guaranteed to be covered in fecal matter as well as other billions of germs and contaminants, no matter how clean it looks or you think it is. The world is a disgusting place. Look at that picture again, seems to me that all the products are boxed. So they're not even coming in direct contact with anything that they wouldn't by having them on the regular shelves anyway. The only difference I see is theres an open source of water. Which, again, if they're water damaged..I'd be pissed and want a refund so I could buy the product from somewhere else. But that would be the same as I would do at literally any other store if I got a water damaged product.

"Oh bollocks, this console just *fell into the toilet*, I guess i'll have to take it home and see if it works".

Hey! I've got a family history of dropping things whilst in the toilet....

Still have yet to have anything like this happen at my Gamestop, then again they do have a fairly large backroom, supposedly unlike the one talked about in the article.
