    You should of directed your forehead very quickly onto his nose, that would have cleared the issue up.

    I was a little pissed at Futureshop when asking for a thing beside a Clerk and they were like wth are u talking about *whats a TV Tuner Card???* Some random chick who was working the accessory wall eventually came over and grabbed it. The supposed other 3 who were working the PC Department were all ???? Was funny too I dumped 2K there the day before so the 3 that were following me were the same who saw me the day before.... I made sure the chick got the sales (commision)

    I had no idea that I was starting such a big thread. :nerd:

    I guess the staffing problems at pc stores are much bigger than I thought.

    You would think that if a person was going to work in a pc store, they would at least attempt to learn something about the business they are in. What happened to people having pride in their work? Maybe I'm old school, but if I were selling cars, I'd learn about cars. If I'm selling computers, I'd learn something about them. It isn't very complicated for the most part.

    most stores dont pay commision now a days, it comes down to the people who actually know ****, and the few that have a sense of job integrity.

    That or they get frustrated when they realize how much those stores rip people off! FX5200 is still around $100 at best buy! That's crazy to me, and I would go nuts when people would buy stuff like that. I'd probably get fired for showing everyone newegg.com!

    no, i convince them to pay the 200usd for a 4850, they are overpaying, but at least they are getting something for their money.

    however i install car radios, so its only so often i help people in computers.
