    PS2 Stolen...

    My brother had his PS2 stolen over the weekend.
    He went to visit his best friend at college, and took it with. They hooked it up in the community room where the big screen TV was. For whatever reason, he felt it would be OK to leave it in there for a couple hours while they went to do something else. They came back, it was gone.
    His friend is an RA, so he knows everyone in the dorm and said that no one would take it anyways. I guess not.
    One guy saw the person who took it, but he doesn't care so he refuses to try to help find the kid who took it.
    My brother had borrowed my X-Men Legends II game and took it with. That got stolen too.
    I'm not too upset about that, because I didn't play the game often anyways.
    My brother is surprised that someone actually took it. C'mon, duh!? A Playstation 2, left alone in a college dorm community room in plain sight of anyone walking by? That's asking for it to be stolen.

    Ouch.
    I always lock my room and apartment door whenever I leave, even if it's just for a few minutes.

    I suppose he did have it coming though; leaving expensive stuff out like that is a big no-no in college dorms.

    Well, so far, our PS2, two Xbox's, four mini fridges, toaster, microwave, coffee maker, water dispenser, and food are still ok. So I don't quite know what you're talking about (obviously it's in the dorm common room as well).

    For the longest time, there was a small group that would leave a PS2 in a common room-type thing, and whenever one had a break between classes they would pull a controller and a game out of their backpack and play for a bit. It was there until the building got redone, don't know where it is now.

    Well, look on the bright side. Your brother now has an excuse to spend an abhorrent amount of money to get a PS3.




    EDIT: was the PS2 one of the Older versions or a Newer version?

    I sometimes leave plastic cups in the drying rack in the staff tea room here, and THEY get stolen. Plastic cups. I mean Jesus, why in God's name would anyone steal a plastic cup? There are piles of real cups there too.

    that sucks...

    my friend's roommate had his laptop stolen which was really bad since he had all his documents and data on it.

    luckily, my friend didn't have his laptop in the room at the time and only had his cell phone charger stolen.

    It was the newer slim version.


    Yes he did, but I didn't have the heart to say that to him.
