  • Tale of the Twiztid Salesman

    This isn't really "Tech Help", however it has to do with computer tech's, so Ima post it here to keep the forum alive. I hope you like stories...


    The other day, about a week ago, I decided I needed more CD-R's, so I went to CompUSA here, which is a big computer, and computer supply store. Anyway, I bought 2 50 packs of Sony 48x writable CD-R's for 20 bucks, not bad, but anyway, I decided I'd go check out the new systems, hardware, and games while I was there anyway. Well, I went looking at a few things, and what happened? This lil scrub comes up to me, who obviously worked at the store, and began to hastle me about this "New State of the Art" Printer for 500 dollars, and how it was the whip and all this. Well, Being the nice guy I am, I calmly dissmissed it, and went on, well, about 5 minutes later, he returned, and kept going on and on about the printer, well, I had enough at this point, so I told him that the same exact printer was at wal-mart for 200. This little guy flipped on me, talking all kinds of trash about how he knows for a fact that it isn't, and I just don't know "one printer from another". It was about this time when the idea of choking the guy senseless, and making a quick exit was running through my head, but instead, I began to talk myself, about the inner mechanics of a printer, and once I saw the guy was lost, I said "Who's the idiot now", and left.


    Moral of this story is that computer techs, and apparently even computer salesmen are the same as musicians, when one confronts another, its allways a battle to see "Who's best", its rediculous ya'll...I mean honestly, who cares if I know just a little more than someone else, or that they know more than me?...I never understood how this would ever matter. I mean in the world, there is someone allways better, no matter what. Basketball, Computers, Music, whatever....You will allways know that there is someone out there better than you, so whats the point of acting like a complete jerk to make yourself look big?

    This guy was lucky that I wasn't some highly insane man, who hadn't taken his medication in awhile, cause if that had of been the case, CompUSA would have became my own little warzone :devil

    Actually the guy was lucky that you were not his boss! Think how stupid it would look on his resume that he was bested by a dumb (his boss under cover) customer! His tatics though I might add are typical for Comission seeking goons in any trade, watch out for those monkey jo's wearing coverall's that call themselves mechanics. With a crowbar they wreck a piece under your hood and get you in after to look at this old broken part with grease all over the break to hide the fresh cracks and scrapes and gouges. I saw one guy like that get arrested after being on camera.

      True dat! Someone don't even have to be a computer tech to try to outduel you.

      Just this past weekend I came across a dude who probably never even been on a computer in his life, but still wanted to convince me that he was better at everything. All he had to do was start talking and I realized how clueless he was.
      It is so sad that a family can torn apart by something as simple as a wild pack of dogs.

        bad things about salesman I see is that the only thing most of em know is what their boss tells em, or something printed to make it sound good(and other than that they know zip about the product, or anything other than ya turn it on and it works). Was in 1 place picking up a combo printer/scanner/copier and and a kid in middle school knew more about the damn stuff than the salesman did. Ifin they gonna sell it they outta know everything there is to know about it, and yes even what their competitors are selling it for.:D

          Man, it would suck to be a salesman and have to work for commission.

            He's lucky I didn't go nuts in the store and hump him or somthing, I loose my temper in situations like that easily. This one guy here in the neighborhood once told me "Ram strips has nothing to do with Ram Memory".....it was about that time that I had to exit the room before calling him a moron infront of his girlfriend (My Ex).

              Those are the guys I call zipper heads, open zipper remove brain, take a ****e in their skull and close zipper again. Then when you tell them they are full of it, it will be true!!

              I took a course on electronics that lasted 4.5 years and never stopped, the upgrades and changes were there faster than we could get courses. Then I changed jobs. I can always fall back on this but I was in repairs not sales. I have never in all my life seen a smart sales man. For that matter a smart politician either.
