    Reason # 87954163843671432849333215465872

    To hate Best Buy


    I was there all of about 15 minutes returning this all-in-one printer that fubard my PC....looking for an HP when I was practically accosted by 3 of their employees

    Boob #1:"Are you doing ok?"
    Me: "Is there something that would lead you to believe otherwise?"

    30 second later in another aisle

    Boob#2 "Can I help you find anything?" This is asked when I am reading the HP box
    Me: "Um, no...If I need something I'll find you"

    Minute later in previous aisle

    Boob#3 "Are you doing ok?"
    Me: "You're the 3rd guy to ask me within 5 minutes"
    Boob#3 "What's your 3rd answer gonna be?"
    Me:"Stay away from me until I scream I NEED HELP!"


    My gawd...it was bordering on harrassment. I don't think I bug people that much that owe me money.

    it's on purpose. they don't want people to leave w/ out being "greeted" -- really it's just a bunch of idiots making sure they don't get yelled at.

    They should have no employees at the store and that if you have a question, there should be a computer booth that can answer ur questions and check stock.

    I'd go to that store for sure! oh throw in a few hot chicks just for good measure.

    Fry's is like that here.. like 10 sales people uselessly talking, not doing **** -- EVER. They're rude, useless and know nothing so I just ask to use their PCs to look stuff up. I hate it. I worked at a BBY for 6 years.. it's hit or miss, depending on store management, as to whether or not you'll have a pleasant experience.. more often than not, they hire idiots.

    And I thought they just did that to me. I hardly ever go to BB anymore for that reason. I find at least around here Circuit City is not near as bad.

    I have not been arrested yet but this is my standard PITA salesman reply...


    Boob #1: Can I help you Sir?

    My reply...yes, take me to the safe and bring the store manager with his key or else I detonate the bomb planted in my ass.

    Gets a good laugh from all within hearing distance and they learn real quick that I do not require any help.

    It's been years since I've been in a beast buy, but i still remeber a lady unloading profanities and physical threats on an employee there. Seems that they had called her like 3 times to tell her that her printer was in, when it wasn't. She said something about a 30 minute drive one way. The guy gave her some higher model printer just to save his life, i swear she was going to start hitting him LOL
