After we told them that they took the cash on what we could take, threw the bag in our garbage and left. I happened to see the games in there and they were good ones; Mario, Zelda's, DK 64, Banjo and Pokemon Stadium 2. I've been wanted to pick up Pokemon Stadium 2 for a while now but $50 makes me think otherwise. So I looked at the game and it's pretty badly rusted on the bottom. The cartridge part is fine, a little corroded but nothing some rubbing alcohol can't fix. So I ask my one manager if I can take it since the owner doesn't want it and we can't take it so can I at least try it. I have the screwdriver so I can open up the game and see what else it damaged and why let it go to waste, right? He looks at me and says, "Put it in your bag and we never had this conversation." So I've been cleaning this game for 3 and a half hours. The inside metal that secures the game in place was all rusted and nasty but the circuit board wasn't damaged. So I cleaned it out and I'm letting it air dry over night and I'm going to test it out in the morning. Hopefully it works! :D
