My gripe is Best Buy being 60+ you go in there to buy anything and the help will walk right over you ( after standing there for a while ) to help the 20 year old who just walked in.
They are so bad around here I do not go into Best Buys period.

When the hubby or I are in a Best Buy or other technology store, we often serve to answer questions.

There is so much more to retail these days though. My daughter left JC Penny's where she was a training supervisor and does not miss it a bit, except for the discount. She would have to train the new clerks but they also used her almost as an assistant manager. She had to serve as baby-sitter for kids running all over the place, intervene with rude customers, and clean up the messes that rude customers left. Happily, she could do an MA in Accounting through me and now works for a bank but not in the customer service part.

I was in Bass Pro shop with her last weekend. She had to stop herself from grabbing someone's lost and misbehaving child.

Well since the subject was brought up by someone else (rude customer's) I have dealt with customer's basically for 30 plus years.
I will have to say that the old therory of the " customer is always right" Is bull hockey! But do believe that even the rude, ignorant, crazy customer deserves the best service as well. Just cause they don't believe they got good service doesn't mean the didn't get it.

Imagine going into a Best Buy to buy things to install and having to "Interface" with the Geek Squad?!?!

Every day for me as I buy a lot at retail to install.
I have a store where they know me and I can get in and out fast if the guys I know are there but if not.......

A few weeks ago I was getting 4 50" Plasmas from a new guy and was about to walk out when I heard laughing and of course it was two of the guys I do know watching the whole thing. They told me they had a bet to see how long it would take for me to become NASTY!

I have no idea what they meant?

What I love about "Worst Buy" is getting an answer to a question such as "will this work with a ...." and the brain surgeon takes the box out of my hands and begins to read what it says on the side.
Now hear this:
I have already read the damn box!
I am asking about something that is not printed there.
I am not illiterate!
I can read!
If you do not know the answer then either just say so, or find someone who does know or I'll go somewhere else where they maybe do have staff who actually got past 5th grade!

I would bet that there are as many stories of irritating sales people as there are people in the world. Just remember that most people are just there to provide an income for their family or themselves. Most do not have some inherent love of electronics or home repair and not everyone can understand that stuff. Often they aren't paid enough to stick around for the years it takes to learn some of it. We're all human.

Best Buy?
Never been there.

I have cultivated friends who are first adopters of new technology. When they just "have to" have the latest thing, I get their hand-me-downs of recent technology that is perfectly functional but has been replaced by their new latest thing. I use stuff until it is no longer repairable. I haven't had to buy a TV set, DVD player or Computer printer in years.

I understand that Fred.
Everyone that knows me has a 35-40" CRT TV that I took in a few years ago when people had to have new TV's but couldn't figure out what to do to "Dispose" of the old ones.
Some were 5 to 8 thousand dollar sets when new and are a little heavy too.

I still take everyone I am offered and there is a GoodWill store at the top of my street that gets the overflow.
