Hee!



<3: gwen> So, I'm at CompUSA with my mom; she wanted my advice on Mac computers for her needs.
<3: gwen> An Overbearing Sales Rep comes over and refuses to listen to, "No, we don't want help at this time."
<3: Will> 'After the gunsmoke cleared,'
<3: gwen> And continues to be overbearing while trying to make a sale, regardless that we don't want to buy anything, she's just getting my advice.
<3: gwen> Finally, he tries to force my mom into guessing at a price on the iMac laptop he's been trying to sell to her, in his Overbearing way, so I said, "Ok, what all does it have on it? Ok, $700 refurbished on SmallDog electronics."
<3: gwen> His price was $899.
<3: gwen> Please note the esc key was missing.
<3: Will> Heh
<3: gwen> So, realizing he wasn't making a sale, he finally asked about the quote on my back.
<3: gwen> "It's Teddy Roosevelt saying it's our patriotic duty to question the president."
<3: Raindog> "now fuck off"
<3: gwen> him, "well, yes, you have the RIGHT, but you're WRONG."
<3: gwen> then huffed off.
* 3: Will laughs.
<3: Will> CompUSA? That comports with my experiences. ;)
<3: Raindog> Well the president is supported by chisling sales reps, that's nioce to know.
<3: Will> Particularly if you are doing anything Macishly.
<3: gwen> We were just in there to compare things up front.
<3: Raindog> I've never gotten anything useful there. I go just for stuff I need.
* 3: Will remembers having to practically force them to sell us something. Oy.
<3: gwen> My mom wants to buy through online if she goes that way, just wanted to look while I made with the advice. :)
* 3: Will nods to Gwen. Sounds like a good plan, minus the irritant.
<3: gwen> Plus, we were looking at wireless mice for her computer, but that was a different dept.
<3: gwen> Yah, this guy just wasn't going to take the hint.
<3: A.Machine?> I'd have kicked him in the teeth.
<3: Raindog> I'd have been like "what's your manager's name" after the right / wrong thing.
<3: gwen> Like, he came up, was the third to do so (all the others realized the hint) and when we said, "No, we're just looking," he continued to shove something down our throat.
<3: Raindog> Or just gone to any random authority figure.
<3: gwen> Meanwhile, I'm playing around with terminal on the Titanium. :)
<3: gwen> I think that scared him too.
<3: gwen> Oh, no, I was just glad it made him go away.
<3: gwen> I think he was irritated with me for knowing more than him, and completely obliterating his sales technique.
<3: gwen> Which, near as I can tell, was focused on, "Two women, I can filibuster them into buying something they know nothing about."
<3: A.Machine?> I'd have kicked him in the teeth.
<3: Raindog> I'd have been like "what's your manager's name" after the right / wrong thing.

<3: A.Machine?> Pushy salespeople are Satan.
<3: gwen> So, I was also happy to irritate him more than he irritated us. :)
<3: Will> Computer salespeople at CompUSA are about the lowest of the low, from my experience.
<3: gwen> Well, we found an actually good sales guy in the sound dept
<3: Will> Like wings on a bulldozer.
<3: gwen> (while mom was looking at the plasma TVs)
* 3: Raindog would just be looking for ways to say "fuck off" louder. If you don't deterr them and ruin them, they'll take root.
<3: gwen> He was quiet, was listening to needs, was giving good advice.
<3: Raindog> That's polite.
<3: Will> Part of me would like to just turn and fart in his direction, if 'GO AWAY' didn't work.
<3: gwen> So I took his name down. :)
<3: gwen> Well, *I* would have.
<3: Will> But that would take either talented physical control or good timing.
<3: gwen> My mom was trying to be rich snob lady today.
* 3: Raindog nods.
* 3: Will realizes you were with your mom, yeah, that spoils it. ;)
<3: gwen> I'm not sure who said what to play that insecurity in her, but she was being that a lot.
<3: gwen> Oh, yah, me alone, no one pays attention. I have pink hair.
<3: gwen> "If I ignore her, she'll go away."
<3: gwen> I had to yell at someone in the Sprint store to look in my direction. :)
