Tell me you have the best boyfriend in the world, without telling me you have the best boyfriend in the world
The Animal Crossing x Sanrio amiibo cards came out today. I've been looking forward to this day since Nintendo announced it earlier this year. About a week ago, the game received the update needed to support the amiibo cards.
The Animal Crossing Sanrio amiibo cards were originally released in 2016 for Animal Crossing: New Leaf. For ACNH, they will unlock a range of related items for each character / Sanrio property, and give the option to add that villager to your island.
Here in the US, the cards were exclusively at Target - with must be purchased on their website and without pre-orders. A total shitshow, if you ask me.
The cards were available for purchase starting at 8:00 am (central time). 8:01 am as I am in the middle of checking out on the Target app, I received an error that it is no longer available. 2 minutes in, and the amiibo cards are no longer available at any of the Target near me.
I was devastated. I was upset. I cursed the scalpers who cheated the system and are now selling the cards for as much as $40 on eBay. I tweeted my frustrations and I wasn't the only one who felt wronged by Nintendo, by Target, by the scalpers, and by capitalism.
Then, just before noon today, I got a text from my boyfriend. He said that he was stopping by my office to give me something. And he showed up:
I don't know how he was able to get them. It was one of the nicest things that anyone has ever done for me in a long time, certainly the nicest thing a boyfriend has ever done for me.
He got me 2 packs of the cards (I only needed one) and a plant for my office. Isn't he the best?
