Everyone seems to be saying either PenS, PinS or pens, I can't remember which one it is... where did I write this? :S

If I did write PenS, I meant to write PinS, the reason for the capital S is to show that the first time it was plural, like he says multiple pins are bent - but the second time it is pin, and he says only one pin is bent.

Thanks for the advise. Actually, when I went today to get the replacement it was my mum who did most of the none-technical talking. She starte to get very angry though and said that she wasn't happy with how I was treated and the way I was basically made to feel like I don't know how to do this stuff.

I actually felt sorta bad for the person helping us, it wasn't the ass hole that tried to rip me off, it was somebody else who is actually normally really nice when I go in anyway, and he couldn't apologise for the lazy collegue enough. He is also the person that said the pins are perfect, after a real look. I should have just demanded a second opinion last time, because I'm about 99% sure I can trust the other person.

I'm pissed that my mate's stepdad got sold Windows 7 Home Premium from his 'friend' for $350, and it wasn't even genuine. I couldn't bring myself to tell him though, and just offered to get rid of the Windows is not Geniune using RemoverWAT instead.

I also see shops here ripping people off... GT220 for $99? That's a bit harsh...
I almost got sold a GTS240 for $200.... You know what I did, I walked out..
Sketchy Mofo and what was worse a GTS450 for $400

If you think shouting, intimidating employees and keeping a business from carrying on its work is a way to get what you want you may just find out what the local police station looks like, it is illegal to interfer with a business like this. I liked the comment about rights in the UK. Does this include the right to be on TV at every intersection in the country? The UK has some wicked survailence policies. You can also rest assured that your shouting/intimination act is being recorded. Don't resort to acting like this any where.

Anecdotal story/evidence: That may be the case in London but I'm in East Kent ATM and I don't feel like that's the case at all. Really I feel that it's just hyperbole that everything is surveilled and Big Brother is present everywhere. Sure there's no shortage of cameras and foot patrols in the city I'm staying in but for the most part people are really nice (even with my "American accent". It's really a North West American Accent, quite neutral almost like Standard American English IMO).

Anyways, there's a time and a place to make a scene and usually that should be the last resort. If you ever need to shout 99% of the time you've lost control of the situation. Calmly point out their bull**** (or get a proxy (ie. male friend if you're a female at the car shop) to do it for you) and ask that they not try to blow smoke up your ass.

It's all practise really. At 15, 16 I was totally inexperienced in arguing, but now I think that I can handle things on myself to get satisfactory results for all parties involved. Really it's all practise, practise in haggling, practise in complaining (not whining but a formal and reasoned complaint), etc.

Most places will respond to well reasoned complaints. If one of my customers comes to me and says, I expected that the service entailed having my data transfered, it says so in my work order, and yet I am missing a bunch of files, then I will work to make that customer right, even if they are not necessarily 100% in the right.

If someone comes out threating from the get go they are going to get a lot less understanding and help from me, even if their case has some merit.

Yes, however you are speaking from the perspective of the salesmen that knows what to do, and also wants to give a successful relationship to the customer, as compared to the salesmen in the OP, who probably didnt know what he was talking and/or saw it as an good way to suggest more expensive crap.

For myself when I was at that age I would just use overly intelligent words to take control of the situation, as most fry's workers are just their for the job

Gave the card to mom and after 45 minutes of listening to the radio in the car she walked out with a brand new xfx GTX 8800 (I was trying to get a 8600GT replaced ^_^)


tl;dr get your dad to go in there and complain that he was rude ect ect and you demand a refund or replacement, might even walk out with something better
nice story. this is why i dont deal with retail outlets.
