thats probably why you don't work at one.phait wrote: But I would be honest with the customer if I didn't know anything about such and such gear. I'm not a bullshitter.
I have toyed with the idea as well - but the fact is, it would drive me insane after 2 weeks. Think about it - most of the customers are going to drive you crazy over stupid shit. I mean, if you think most of the employees are clueless - just imagine getting bombarded by high schoolers looking to save a buck... and people banging on the drums all day... and bad guitar playing... its really no wonder why they hire a certain type of person. I mean, the above experience happened at a local store in northern VT (well, its a chain - the only chain we have up here Daddy's) are they going to find someone with some knowhow there? The manager there is ok though - but hes usually too busy dealing with bullshit from the other customers and employees to help me all of the time.
