A girl gamer is thrown for a loop when she attempts to downgrade her Xbox LIVE service, receiving a baffling response that assumes she is a mother, not a gamer, who’s son is the one who is actually dissatisfied.
The problem here is that she is no mother, nor does she have a son. She’s just a girl gamer in this wild, wild, dude gamer world looking to reduce her monthly expenses. An excerpt from the form response reads:
“Thank you for using XBOX Customer Support online! I am Joyce and I will be helping you today with this issue.
As I understand, when your son tries to sign in to Xbox LIVE, [redacted]
I know how disappointing it is when your son cannot enjoy the Xbox Live service due to this matter.”
Clearly, Microsoft cares little to nothing for the all the womens of the world, right? No way that someone who shaves their legs and never farts would ever pick up a controller, much less know how to use it.
As fun as it would be to think that Microsoft is that out of touch, it just isn’t true. Stephen Toulouse, director of policy and enforcement for the Xbox LIVE service, issued a statement declaring that it was a simple email mistake, and that they would never assume women are calling in for their sons.
Good thing, too, because hell hath no fury like a gamer girl scorned.
