We should really think about bringing back the stocks. We seem to enjoy them so.

You have to have an appointment to buy parts ? What kind of shiatty customer service is that ?

For a specific part? At an Apple store? At the Grove - one of the busiest public shopping areas in LA? Sounds like streamlining to me. I've been in that Apple Store - it's always packed.

Too bad about the crazy, she's not altogether unattractive. I'd let her have some "parts".

n. Informal
A fit of violent emotion, such as anger or panic. Also called conniption fit.

So tantrum in English then.

Appointment  or wait. As in, how every service counter in the universe behaves when there's already a queue. As in, she can't just walk in and cut ahead of everybody else already waiting. Option 1, get in line with everyone else, option 2, schedule a specific time and go off to enjoy yourself until then.

The screaming lady's behavior is really horrible, but I suspect there's more to her side of the story.  She seems furious and I bet she was told she would have a long wait after someone else promised her she could walk in and walk out.

Obviously that is no excuse for having a fit or treating the employee like garbage.  Maybe she thought that screaming like that would get someone to help her in order to get her away from the prospective customers... some people try that type of stunt.

On the other hand, she didn't plan to have this fit... it was simply an impulsive and stupid moment.  Most of us have behaved extremely stupidly at some point in our lives, and had that been aired on the internet, would be humiliated.

In my opinion, it is this attention seeking "actress" who is the real asshole.  She is happy to humiliate someone in front of the world just to gain 15 seconds of publicity.  She made sure to require a glamour shot and name checks with this article... I guess that's good publicity, but it's also extremely selfish.

When someone is an asshole to a low level employee, they probably deserve some embarassment, but I don't like the world we're headed where any mistake you make can be used by some slimeball seeking to climb over your misery in their quest for fame.

And I wonder if there's something creepy about the fact that we're starting to entertain ourselves by watching videos of people with mental and/or emotional problems having breakdowns.

The Apple Store and the ""Geniuses" " deserve every ounce of scorn and abuse they get.

In other news, I need to get my tires rotated by the Pep Boy Genuises then get lunch from the Subway Genuises. Prob need the dog washed by the PetSmart Geniuses this after to boot.

Either that, or wait in line.  You know, like every other retail store on the planet.  Oh, except most of those don't have a feature where you can make an appointment, so that you don't have to wait at all.

And as we all know, Apple's customer service rankings have been in the tank for years now, amiright?

I'm presently working at a Staples Copy and Print Center (don't ask, I became a widower and lost my real job at the same time), but if you want to see people go apoplectic after something they think will happen doesn't - find an Apple user.
 
2013-07-25 05:13:12 AM
The people at the Apple Genius bar can be taxing at times but at the end of the day, this woman was a biatch1 for expecting preferential treatment over everyone else.  Then again, this is LA (where nepotism runs rampant, drugs are like candy, a high profile man can get away with murder, a mediocre attorney can become a billionaire, a doctor can kill the King of Pop, an average looking girl can make millions for her family off of a sex tape and a fat rich Persian girl can have her own reality show).

Y'all can biatch2 about Apple products all you want but the important point here is the location filled with people who have been worshipped for far too long and for all the wrong reasons, then add fame-starved moron actresses and/or singers who would do anything to go viral publicly.

Quid pro quo biatches3.

Those Apple stores are just hazardous.

I once brought a MacBook Pro into one of the shoebox Apple stores (the really tiny ones). The problem was that the fan on it was really loud and the AppleCare people said I had to bring it in so the Genius could diagnose the problem in person.

The problem with that is that the store is built of cement and glass and is filled with noisy people. I had to yell just to be heard, so there was no way he was going to hear the fans. I saw old grandmother sitting at tiny tables taking lessons on how to use computers from other genii. I couldn't understand how they put up with that. It was like trying to wade through a parade, and these people are trying to learn how to use a computer for the first time in that.

Just hazardous. I think they're judging their stores on sales per square foot (which of course is going to be high when the stores are 10x too small) and on decibel level. The higher the decibels the more excited the customers!

I bet people freak out like that woman every day in those stores.

I was in Radio Shack yesterday and I was told it was going to be slow between 1 and 2 PM.  No such luck the manager had a customer who got a replacement phone without wifi capability and she needed that for a wifi hotspot and was going into meltdown. The manager was so flustered. I offered to wait 2 hours for my phone upgrade,but that was not even going to work out. He asked if I would please try another store. I did,felt better and the transaction went swiftly and efficiently.

OTOH

Some places end tantrums with "wanna fight me over it!?"  Usually no takers.

I've heard "having conniptions" and "a fit of conniptions"; never heard "conniption fit" before.

According the the googles it's a southern US phrase.

My mom.

And as I already saw someone else say "conniption fit" was a southern thing: my mom was born, raised and has lived her entire life in Portland, Oregon.  Her parents hailed from Duluth.

They must hire clerks that used to work in the slow-motion ballet that is the vehicle license office. I'm sure those individuals make bets to see how long they can get the lines, bonus if a frustrated client goes off on a rant.

Anyway, this whole "make an appointment" to get your notebook fixed seems to be part of the Apple user's culture. They are proud of it. Like whipping out your MacBook in an Starbucks.  To each his own, I suppose.

Typically a Conniption Fit is a type of tantrum that is marked by extreme ferocity/insanity. Tantrums are about wanting attention, Conniptions are when you just loose you sh*t.

How long of a wait are we talking about, here? Because if it's more than 10 minutes, it's high time they hire more people.
