I will never understand the willingness of "Apple people" to take abuse.


I'll skip the long, drawn-out reasons why I had to drive the 80 miles to an Apple store to buy an unlocked iPhone for HTommyT4 and pick up the story when I arrived. I walk into the store. There are a lot of people around, but it looked like there were enough sales clerks to take care of everyone. One of the clerks comes up to me and asks, "Do you have a sales appointment?" I replied that I didn't and he said, "The appointments for today are all booked up. You'll have to come back tomorrow." I needed an appointment for them to take my money? The last time I faced that situation was when I bought Ms. HowieT3's rock and we had to be buzzed into the jewelers for our appointment because of all the loose stones they had. Fortunately, the Apple store "bent the rules", took my money, and sold me the phone I needed.

Why are y'all so willing to be treated like trash? "We can't sell you a phone; you don't have an appointment." I'm here to buy a phone. I'm not here to have you demonstrate one for 15 minutes and then walk out "to think about it." What is it, my money isn't green enough to suit you? I guess the well-documented arrogance of Steve Jobs is an important part of the corporate culture.
