And you know what? The lack of information can’t even be blamed just on the fact that these kids are in school. There was always boatloads of misinformation floating around my store, and I think we can all atest to the latest Cingular muckup that things haven’t changed in a while.
Prices are always changing, products are even on the shelf or not, release dates seem to always be in flux. And say a product WAS released last Sunday? Sorry, sir. Our shipment doesn’t come in until Tuesday. I’m not the one behind the wheel of those trucks or sending out the packages. I’d sell it to you if I could – hell, I could use the commission.
Pardon the rants contained in the above, but I think I was able to get my point across. It sucks that all this times passed and I’m still stewing about it, but that’s the kind of effect well-informed consumers like ourselves have on innocent wireless retail reps who are simply paying their due to society.
But I’d really like to hear your horror stories, I’m not going to lie. Have you ever been shown up by an employee? Or did you make the poor kid’s head spin around with all of the knowledge you were spitting? Have any of you been employed by one of these retailers and been lambasted or lambasted someone else with BlackBerry knowledge? Let me know. And as for those clerks? Just let ‘em be. Let ‘em be.
