American Teenager Gets A Not-So-Merry Christmas

A 13-year old from Camarillo, USA opened their Christmas present on Christmas day to reveal a sealed PlayStation 3 box containing a Thousand Oak phone book. Brandon Burns’ reaction to finding a phone book inside the box rather than a PlayStation 3 was “Damn, those elves have jacked my PlayStation” and he was “more laughing than disappointed.”

The PlayStation 3 which was bought from a Thousand Oak Electronic Boutique store cost Brandon Burns’ parents $499.99 plus tax. Nicole Burns, Brandon’s mother and buyer of the console said: “I think somebody working at the store wanted a PlayStation. Hopefully when we go into the store, they actually believe that the phone book was in it. That’s what I’m afraid of, why are they going to believe us?”

If the individual who swapped the phone book for the console is caught, they are likely to face felony charges for the stolen PlayStation 3. The full news story can be viewed here.
