    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.
    The real deal is that the mangement pushes all of the workers to be like that and say that they "don't make a commision" on what they sell.. however what a lot of the workers don't even know that mangement makes "mad bonuses" especially on those "service plans"

    The other thing is that the stereo and computer departments push accessories like cables and connectors ECT.. because the mark up is "wicked high". What thier is cost wholesale, per item is so low.
    Really.. a cable that is like $10.99, is only like "$1.00".. no b.s. on that either.

    Yep, don't blame the worker bees, blame the Nazi management. Their jobs are probably on the line if they DON'T harass you in a manner like that.

    On a side note, reason number 87954163843671432849333215465872 is 87954163843671432849333215465871 too many when it comes to hating Best Buy.

Which is a shame since really the discount is pretty nice on certain things, plus good oppurtunity for advancement if I would stay, I work with some really cool and smart people, but....the way the scheduling works is retarded...I have another part time job, and I cannot get a set schedule, I guess the departments all get "labor hours" which is determined by how much your department does in sales...so the more people buy, the more hours I get....well it sucks because I go from 21 hrs per week for my training, to 13 hrs this week, and a measly 9 hrs next week..

    So I guess I love to shop best buy, but not work at one Too much corporate BS to deal with, with all the crap we have to learn to sell stuff, when all I want to do is fix computers, not "recommend" overpriced services.

    Every normal man must be tempted at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.
    I often wonder if the voices in my head ever get frustrated because I'm just too damn lazy to climb that clock tower.
