    I do like to shop in best buy but can't resist asking those techy's question I know they don't know the answer too. But i work at kroger in produce and people ask me about veggies and all and i know NOTHING abou them (I like apples, thats about it). BTW...never buy cut fruit in those cylinder plastic cups. Just take my word for it

    Ok, get this. I just moved to Georgia recently and turned in a few applications.

    So I was in the line to pick up an application. There was the head techy guy there (I guess since had a black shirt on and a funky nae tag that said "manager" on it). So he was talking to some guy about building a computer. So he said "I get all of my parts from tiger direct, they are great" and then he said "you might want a athlon 1700 which runs at 1.4ghz" which would be a 1600, those type of things make me mad. If you don't know what the hell your talking about just say "i dont know" instead of pushing out a bunch of crap. And if some guy goes to best buy to get info on building a computer he should obviously buy a dell. (That made me decide against working there since it would bug me to have a manager over me who should be under me)

    BTW...with the fruit we always use the fruit that is too ugly to buy off the stand. And today one of our employees borrowed a knife and flat top from SEAFOOD and didnt clean a damn thing and cut everything right on top of the flat top without gloves and a hat. And employees come by and eat the fruit right out of the cup you are trying to fill. It is extremely unsanitary. I shop at wal mart and im sure its not that much better there anyway.

    Now why you want to go and bring age into it?I'm 39 and I want to go.My schedule is a little crazy with work,trying to finish my bachelors and teaching karate.Less not forget the wife,three kids and a dog.My point being that I can't just go at the drop of a hat like I could when I was your age.Gonna need some advance notice.(like two months )THEshaggy and I can meet up anytime.I probably have shopped at his store.You on a cable modem shaggy? Who is your provider?
