Geek Squad Sucks! - Page 6

post #51 of 69
I work at Best Buy and I don't even work in the computer section. A customer once came in to look for a PCI raid card for IDE hdd's. Apparently nobody but me knows what it is.....

I learned about computers by reading online once in a blue moon and also by working 1 month being paid 7 bucks an hour to assemble them.

Maplin employs ******* as well even though they say they employ knowledgable people. The other day I went in and I went up to the electronic components desk and asked if they had any pin headers/strips and I already knew that they had them cos I looked in the catalogue. Anyway the guy looks at me funny and goes "pin headers?" lookes through the catalogue for like 10 mins and says we aint got any. What a spaz!!
