they're like a technological version of wal-mart, doesnt matter how ****ed up it is, goes back on the shelf. and the returned food.........i REFUSE to buy cold food from wal-mart, i have seen it sit in buggies for HOURS AND HOURS, im talking like 12-14 hours, then when someone finally gets around to it, it goes back in the cooler. **** THAT

i went to radio shack this past thursday to get supplies for my h.i.ds. i just walk past every employee there. ill look around until i find it. they always ask me if they can help me, i tell them im just looking around and can handle it. the rs in my town always has people in there that dont know what things are when you tell them what youre looking for.

I guess I am fortunate enough. The Radioshack by me is cool. I go in. They ask what I need. I tell them. The proceed to help me find what I need. Usually ask for what will it be used for automotive wise. I tell them and they 95% of the time help me figure out even a better way of doing things and throwing in the other stuff that I wasn't going to purchase. (i.e wiring up a 10 switchbox )

I like how they always want your name and address, even when you're buying a little $1 item.:haha:
yea the main reason i only shop there every few years when i absolutely need something i can't find anywhere else, that's a pain in the balls to anybody

assholes wanna know everything about you..... makes me want to offer them a blood sample and tell the prick to send her girlfriend over and i'll give radioshack a sperm sample too:D
