No offense to anyone who works there....but they are so bleeping clueless.

So I go in the other day looking for a locking mechanism for my new HD monitor that totally kicks ass. I go up to the guy in the computer area and ask: "Where can I find a lock for my monitor?"

He responds: "There's no such thing"

I go: "I saw it advertised on your website, it locks into either laptops or monitors"

He goes: "You must have read it wrong, we don't carry that"

I proceed to the next imbecile and he responds with the same blankness. So, I look myself, find a section with locks. I find exactly what I'm looking for, walk up to the first guy who's helping some people and tell him "You need a new job" and leave.

Urghhhhh! :banghead:

After high school and when I was at ECPI, I got hired at the Best Buy in computer sales. I went there one day (orientation) and then quit because Circuit City (at the time) wanted their employees to be subject matter experts and paid them commission (I went to work there). Best Buy just wanted dumbasses to be able to answer questions without hounding the customer.

I have actually helped Best Buy employees find things in their store and had to explain to one the difference between PCI and AGP. They are basically only useful for pointing you in the general direction of something you are looking for, not much more than that.

best buy is just empowering the consumer to read the f*ck up about it yourself and go find it your f*cking self.

why do people get so heated over such benign hiccups in customer service
