elementcircle: Jument: Cythraul: Pocket Ninja: Geek Squad are the SEALs of Best Buy.

You have that much faith in Geek Squad? All my IT friends tell me they suck, hard core.

You should take your Sarcasm Detector to the Geek Squad for repairs.

You obviously have no idea wtf you're talking about because A.) Geek Squad NEVER wear blue shirts, and 2.) actually are a bunch of geeks, at least in the stores around here.

Also, a lot of them used to work at tech companies as IT and other such jobs, but were downsized and ended up working for Best Buy. It's so tiresome how Farkers keep shiatting on things they really know nothing about. It's one thing to complain about the ACTUAL problems at Best Buy - things like shiatty customer service, orders getting screwed up, lack of product, etc. When you have problems like someone not knowing things, it could be one of several things: 1.) They are new. 2.) You're a self-righteous douche that can't wait to be given proper help and demand that someone from a different department that doesn't know anything about the department you need help in, just because they are free at the moment. 3.) You're a self-righteous douche that thinks you are the end-all, be-all of all things technology and anyone who doesn't know how to build their own quantum computer network from scratch, is a dribbling idiot.

This is not a direct defense of Best Buy - quit frankly they can go fark themselves - but a defense of retail employees. If you can't stop being a dick, STFU and order some broke-ass shiat from Amazon.


I took this picture while standing at the Geek Squad counter at the Best Buy in Lone Tree, CO. Shows you their level of professionalism.

Still, one would think that leaving a phone in the hands of a Best Buy employee would safeguard a person from such pranks

Okay, how will you defend retail employees?

elementcircle: shiatty customer service, orders getting screwed up, lack of product, etc. When you have problems like someone not knowing things



This is not much of a defense of retail employees. But go on...

elementcircle: 1.) They are new. 2.) You're a self-righteous douche that can't wait to be given proper help and demand that someone from a different department that doesn't know anything about the department you need help in, just because they are free at the moment. 3.) You're a self-righteous douche that thinks you are the end-all, be-all of all things technology and anyone who doesn't know how to build their own quantum computer network from scratch, is a dribbling idiot.



So when the computer guy, who works in the computer department, at a computer retail store, such as Best Buy, does not know an answer to your question about the computers, it is not his fault and you are a self-righteous douche.

Alright. It wasn't the greatest of defenses ever but yeah, fark that guy.

I May Be Crazy But...: LovingTeacher: sammyk: Guy probably deserved it by being a dick to the kid. The kid was probably sick of the shiat job at BB. Don't piss of the people that make your food or fix your gadgets people. They are one insult away from saying fark this job and fark the shiatty customers too.

True but it's not like he peed in his soup or spliced porn into his family movie.

Isn't splicing porn into the family movie like tossing a bucket of water into the ocean? Or does not everyone have the same sort of family movies as mine?


I guess some people frown on that. As for me I still fap to Aunt Rhondas tatas.

Cythraul: Adolf Oliver Nipples: Cythraul: Grables'Daughter: Yeah, I read that and thought it was a pretty shiatty thing for him to say.

adamgreeney: I felt bad for him until that line. now I think he deserved it.

Yeah, there are worse things in the world to have people assume about your character other than being gay. I was a bit insulted by that remark, but not surprised. For many men, nothing is considered a worse insult than to be thought of as less than a man, which is what people think of homosexuality.

To be fair, he's not homosexual. He now has to explain that to everybody that wants to make a big deal out of it, and since something like that is an inherently private matter to begin with unless you choose to make it public it's easy to see how he could think those things.

What?

To say to the world after people think you may be gay when you're not, "I feel I've been humiliated, you know, I mean, my reputation has been tarnished," is being a prick. His 'reputation has been tarnished,' by people thinking he might be gay? Fark off, man.


So are you saying that gay people aren't recipients of discrimination, taunting or job related barriers to advancement and that he wasn't worried about that and his prospects of heterosexual relationships?

Smoky Dragon Dish: This would make a good meme. And, it's not like he could be pissed at the meme, because, he's NOT GAY.


I'm pretty sure Eddie Murphy covered that in the 80s, on SNL.

Actually in the African American culture being gay is looked down upon much worst than in the 'white' culture. Since fark is probably 99% white it's no wonder no one has looked at it from this angle.
While there are certainly as many black gays per capita as any other races the fact is being accused or trolled as a gay person when you're not (or even if you are) is considered a much bigger offence than with any other culture.
A homo (male) is kinda synonymous with being feminine or a lesser man which is taken to be much more offensive by a black man than a man of a different race/culture.

Posting this solo because ya'll aren't thinking today.

So are all of you saying that gay people aren't recipients of discrimination, taunting or job related barriers to advancement and that he wasn't worried about that and his prospects in heterosexual relationships?

Good jorb on calling him a bigot when he is stating the alleged biggest talking point of the LGBT agenda but happens to be straight so kill him with fire.

Maybe the LGBT brains ought to sieze on this story to show that even straight people recognize people get treated different once sexual orientation is known.
 
2012-05-03 02:02:20 PM

I May Be Crazy But...: As a rule, they aren't interested even when they don't think I'm gay. Anyway, if a woman is at all quick on the uptake, she'll figure out what's going on when I invite her out for dinner, or drinks, or whatever. But I've never been hit on (by a woman) in my life, so maybe I'm full of it on this subject.


Well, if the woman thinks you're gay, she lets her guard down and BAM! Next thing she knows, you're hittin' it like it owes you money.
 
2012-05-03 02:02:56 PM

Pocket Ninja: Well, not every Best Buy employee has the vast experience and intensive, hands-on training of a Geek Squad member. This guy's mistake was probably leaving his phone in the hands of a regular Best Buy employee, and some of those guys aren't supremely well qualified. It's like the bin Laden raid, really -- Obama could have assembled a strike team from regular Army members, and possibly 2 in 4 of them would have been really able to carry out the mission. Maybe 3 in 4. By choosing SEALs, though, it's pretty much 4 in 4. Geek Squad are the SEALs of Best Buy.


You have such an inflated opinion of "regular Army members" as to be well into the realm of fantasy.

If you'd said Marines, I wouldn't have argued. 3/4, easily.
 
2012-05-03 02:03:42 PM
If that happened to me everyone would probably assume I'd been hacked. Especially since I have a ton of former hook-ups on Facebook....

I would, however, post a clarification along the lines of:

"Attention all, I was hacked, I am not actually gay. I am straight and I am very irritated a certain smart-ass Best Buy employee who is going to find himself out of a job very soon."

Gee, thanks. I guess I should go kill myself now.

I felt bad for him until that line. now I think he deserved it.


Reminds me a few years back when two teenage girls were kidnapped and forced into a vehicle at gunpoint. The next day, law enforcement found the car, and were able to take out the kidnapper and rescue the girls alive. The sheriff reported to the press that the girls had been raped. He was blasted for disclosing that and there was even one person remarking that "those girls had reputations to protect".

8.5 tailed fox: Speaking as a geek, I hate the term "Geek Squad." Look, a-holes, geek is our word. We earned it by surviving our unpopular, awkward teen years. Now we can use the term with pride. But only because we earned it.

You can't just stick a blue shirt on your employee and call him a "geek." That disrespects my people's heritage. What's next, a music store with a n-word patrol?


the term 'geek' comes from traveling circus shows. the most absolutely washed up drunks that can barely make it as a clown would entertain the rubes by biting the head off a live chicken. if you are a computer or IT professional then call yourself by the correct title.

furthermore your analogy of n-world patrol for knowledgeable music store employees is ludicrous. music is as international and transcendant as breathing. it knows no borders and is one of the few things of life that pull people of all race, creed and color happily together.

i respect that you are intelligent and well versed in technology. envious, to be perfectly honest. hold your head high and command the respect that you deserve, fellow farker.

Yeah, what he did was stupid. But if you accidentally leave your door unlocked it doesn't give people the right to barge in uninvited and prowl.

thelordofcheese: "I feel I've been humiliated, you know, I mean, my reputation has been tarnished," he said.

Your reputation as a bigotted homphobe with severe lack of confidence in your sexual orientation?


Having gone through life with the name "Dick Dewberry" he was probably just sick of it.

Cletus C.: Mr Guy: JackieRabbit: If people want to believe I'm gay, what do I care?

I get hit on by gay guys ALL THE FRIGGING TIME. I get hit on by gay guys even when I'm out on a date with my girlfriend. The first couple of times it confused me. The next few times it bothered me, a little. I decided a long time ago, though, that I could either try and figure out why I set off gay guys gaydar, or I could just decide that gay guys tend to have good taste, and take it as a compliment. Gay catnip is better than being gay repellant, I guess.

You sound interesting. Hmmm.


I'm told he has a purdy mouth, too and that he has a friend who can squeal like a pig.

ihatedumbpeople: isn't being a devout (fill in the blank with religion of your choice) basically saying you're anti-gay?


No.


ihatedumbpeople: I don't know of any Christian/Catholic/Jewish based religion that says gay relationships are okay..


You don't? Are gaychurch.org and christiangays.com too long for you to type into a browser?

Mr Guy: My girlfriend has a better ass, and she's got boobs.

I mean, I have gay friends. I can respect them. But dude, how do you decide boobs are unnecessary?


How do you decide that penises are unnecessary?

I really don't get you monosexuals.
 
2012-05-03 04:41:46 PM

Mr Guy: If you want an honest answer, from someone who is perfectly willing to calmly and rationally discuss the Bible as it applies to daily life, using actual scripture, homosexuality is a sin. Christianity is extremely clear that all sin (you know, judging others, homosexuality, hatred, anger, not using your resources for good) is equally bad.


If you want an honest answer, from someone who is perfectly willing to calmly and rationally discuss the Bible as it applies to daily life, using actual scripture, eating shrimp is a sin. Christianity is extremely clear that all sin (you know, judging others, eating shrimp, hatred, blending cotton with linen, anger, pepperoni pizza and cheeseburgers, not using your resources for good) is equally bad.


Mr Guy: Christians are given, that I can find, exactly one instruction to avoid sinners. That's when the sin is SO COMPELLING that you simply can't resist it. Paul gave permission, in 1 Corinthians 5, to a specific church to kick out a group of people who were sleeping around (probably committing incest) and just generally being promiscuous through the church. Those people were claiming they were able to sleep with anyone they want, any time they wanted, because the Bible freed them from worrying about sin.


(1) Welcome those who are weak in faith, but do not argue with them about their personal opinions. (2) Some people's faith allows them to eat anything, but the person who is weak in the faith eats only vegetables. (3) The person who will eat anything is not to despise the one who doesn't; while the one who eats only vegetables is not to pass judgment on the one who will eat anything; for God has accepted that person.

That's your buddy Paul again, this time in Romans 14:1-3.

DownDaRiver: Not that I have much to hide anyway. But just the same, I wouldn't let someone get ahold of my HD out of my PC. Why would you let some have your phone which may have just as much sensitive data as a PC.
I see all these adverts to donate your old phone. Foget that.


This takes care of old Hard Drives so you can safely let somebody else use them.

Boot and Nuke

As for phones it depends on what kind. Most of them have a factory reset option that will wipe the internal memory. Just pull the Micro SD, factory reset, and if you want to be thorough, manually reflash the phone with the latest firmware.
 
2012-05-03 05:45:52 PM
My opinion is that the guy is just butt hurt and, like most people here in Amerika, saw an option to try and wring money out of a corporation for doing nothing... He's an asshole who needs to use more lube to get that 2X4 out of his ass...

And as for FB storys: My daughter's got "face raped" by one of her friends making a status of "I need a (insert word for phalus like toy)"... I took it in stride, along with her mom...

Her grandmother, on the other hand, was much less than pleased...

The guy's a douche. What if the Best Buy jerk wrote "Just found out I'm Jewish!". Would that have tarnished his reputation?

He's bigot, that's why he's so pissed off. If someone did that to me I would be embarrassed for the opposite reason. As someone who has worked alongside more than a few GLBT folks in the United Church of Canada to help bring people around to acceptance, I wonder if my friends might think I was trying to make some kind of joke at their expense.

I'm sure I'll have no sympathy for you if your mechanic takes you car out and drifts it around the Walmart parking lot for a few laps.
Professional ethics, how do they work?
 
2012-05-03 07:51:53 PM
Was there actually proof that it was the Best Buy employee? Or was it just a timing coincidence? Facebook accounts aren't that hard to hack into especially if he doesn't login via HTTPS and he uses WiFi networks. I didn't see anything where the employee admitted to posting it. Just that the employee was fired.

I heard you lick chimpanzee balls and fark llamas.

But that's cool, man, I understand that you were born this way, and I totally respect that lifestyle, and sympathize with the challenge of walking your walk, though I've never walked that walk myself. If your family and friends and significant human other can't come to terms with that, tell them to and accept you for who you are or fark the hell off. Then go find a zoo that needs a night watchman, and be proud of who you are. Own it, brother.

What's that? Your not a zoophilic? Hey man, that's cool...I totally understand, as a stranger. Even if the dearest humans to you in the whole wide world do not.
