Someone was on the naughty list

Not everyone can be nice in time for Christmas, and sometimes instead of opening up a brand new 3DS, it turns out Santa has left you a box full of rocks, literally.

That’s exactly what happened to a young boy in Talladega, Alabama, who found his console had been replaced with rocks wrapped in tissue paper.

The Nintendo has been bought from a nearby Wal-Mart, who quickly replaced her expensive rocks with the real deal.

Apparently the same thing had been happening with iPads, where thieves would replace the tablet with notepads.

“Check your merchandise. Just check it before you leave the store, make sure it’s in there and don’t get home and be surprised, like if you found what I found,” the mom said.

According to Wal-Mart, what’s happening is people are buying the products, replacing the items with weighty junk and then returning it to the store. Employees have now been instructed to check the merchandise before issuing a refund.
