@Nona99:  Your selection at the butcher shop is making me hungry 😡 I’d have turned around and said “More for me! It usually doesnt make it home: I’m known to start snacking in the car.” 😉

@Nona99:  I don’t know, I’m kind of torn on the BMW/Kia thing.  Love my BMW but Kia (Hyundai/Kia) pays my bills, so…  😉  Drive and eat whatever the f you want.  And if it’s a H-K or Chrysler (Hub’s employer), thanks!

Hmm…  It seems like a terrible business practice for a butcher shop to tell people that they shouldn’t eat so much red meat.  Wouldn’t you, um, want to sell more meat?

Anyway, sorry people are so annoying.

That reminds me of when I was last buying a computer at Best Buy. They always want to upsell virus programs. I told them I didn’t need all that crap. The salesman was really insistent. “Don’t you need virus protection?You have to have virus protection.” “What do you use?” “Oh no, that’s no good.” the salesman told me. “No, I’m fine. Thanks.” I replied. That’s when the woman shopping behind me piped up “Don’t you have any personal information on your computer?” Frustrated with everyone telling me what to do, I turned around and loudly said “Do I know you?” I’m not proud of it but it did shut her and the salesman up. I suggest you try it.

@Nona99:  You probably should have smacked that woman in the butcher’s shop in the face with one of those cold steaks.

In the first two situations I would probably burst out laughing and say “Do you feel better now? No, really..”

 

The third maybe your dad is just trying to help? Or there was more to the story I’m missing. Dealerships are notorious for ripping people off on trade-in’s. Not to say that it’s not a perfectly sensible option if you don’t want to be inconvenienced with finding a private buyer.

i think that everyone is entitled to an opinion but need to learn to keep it to themselves unless asked.

@AlwaysSunny:  omg

So, I’m really computer savvy. I’ve been playing with and taking apart/fixing computers (and other electronics) since I was a wee lass. I bought a new gaming computer at Best Buy. I knew exactly what I wanted, I just wanted someone to get it for me. The guy had to play 20 questions with me, despite my insistence that I just wanted the damned computer. So we get up front and he tells the guy at the service desk, “She doesn’t want any of the virus protection or Geek Squad services” and leaves it at that. So then THAT guy starts in on me! I was like, “DUDE, LOOK. THIS IS TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE JUST RING ME UP.” And he’s all, “But you NEED virus protection.” Thanks, I use a program. “Well, which one is it? Norton blah blah blah.” Norton sucks and fills your computer with junk and bloatware and I JUST WANT MY FUCKING COMPUTER NOW. “What do you use? YOU NEED VIRUS PROTECTION.” I use AVG and Malware-Bytes. Happy? “Oooh, AVG fried my wife’s laptop!” THEN YOUR WIFE IS A FUCKING MORON. I’ve used AVG for five years with no problems, RING ME THE FUCK UP.

Ooooh, I steaming mad at the end.

@Nona99:  Why is everyone talking about delicious food while I’m waiting for my breakfast to finish cooking?!

And I don’t agree with people telling other people they don’t agree with their life choices. Use my favorite response: “I DON’T AGREE WITH YOUR FACE!” Yes, it is a ridiculous thing to say… just like you telling me what you think of my freaking dinner choice!

Recently, I have been coming across more and more people who assume that their opinion is oh so important and they feel they need to announce it to anyone they get a chance to talk to. Just because you are entitled to your opinion doesn’t mean that you should voice it. Most people don’t care.

@vorpalette:  I feel your pain.  The last time I build a gaming rig, I needed a new power supply for it, went to the Circuit City (yes, that was my first mistake) because they had a 650W on sale.  They were all on the top shelf, so I grabbed some random idiot person that worked there and told him I needed the 650W PS.  He looks at me and says in a VERY condescending tone “Now honey, don’t you think that’s a bit much for what you’d need?”. 

But, at least I got to be a jerk back.  I showed him the specs and explained exactly why the little 350W that he was suggesting wouldn’t work, made him go get the ladder and get the box.  I waited till he got the ladder put away, then I smiled, handed him back the box and told him I’d rather spend $20 more at Best Buy than buy something from him.

Your story about BestBuy is why I buy my computers online. Then I go install Avira.
