Wow, what a freakout!!! Call the cops!!!

Yeah, suddenly I think the actress is an ass for filming it.  I mean, who doesn't want to scream when dealing with Apple?


That wannabe actress's PR team deserves a raise.

WinoRhino: You know, I watched a video on YouTube the other day. It was called "This is Water" narrated by David Foster Wallace and I think you should all have a look at it. You don't know what this woman is going through right now in her life. Divorce? Lost job? Dying parent? Stress could already have her at the breaking point, heroic levels of patience and determination already pushed to the brink by life. And then ... this: the final straw at the Apple Store. You don't know it, but  the child in the stroller is dying as she stands there. The little tot has been fighting a grueling battle with cancer and the mother has been doing everything she can to keep life together and normalized for the child. When the child's hair fell out due to chemo, the mother cut hers short in tribute for them to go through it together (not all the way off, mind you, just short in that cute retro 1920s flapper style because, well, there's the garden party on the 15th and she can't very well go BALD cane she?)  But this morning, as the woman brunched on Rodeo Drive and was suffering the horrors of Cold Duck mimosas,  the child looked up at her mother from the stroller, the last twinkles of life in her eyes, and wanted to play candy crush one last time. Knowing this could be the last request of her child, and having a smudged iPad mini screen, she did what any mother would, and rushed to the Apple Store for one of those white micro-fiber screen clean cloths. And, well, the video takes over from there.

Perspective, people. Get some.

I never stepped foot in an apple store, so I checked out some pictures, because the background of her shiatfit clued me into her problem.  I can see why she'd be pissed, not quite this pissed, but still pissed.  It looks like if you want a simple part, there aren't shelves you can pull it from and register to get in line for.  It looks like the store is set up like a restaurant, and you must wait for your server.  Maybe some people want that, but people who want a simple thing, and don't want to waste time in an apple store certainly won't.

proteus_b: ghostfacekillahrabbit: Sounds like they should have the guy who takes the appointments just sell the parts instead. Streamlining.

Hate to defend Apple, really I do, but think of it this way---maybe in the time that he can handle one customer, another ten have come in to the store. By having one person whose main task will be to schedule appointments, those ten people can now better plan their time---they will be told "ok, you're the 14th person in line, so it might be 20 minutes", or they can just schedule an appointment "ok, come back at 1:15 pm." While it might reduce the efficiency of all the workers by 10% (say if one of ten workers is now just an appointment maker), it will improve the ability of 100% of the customers to know what time to arrive at the store.

I'm pretty sure there is no "guy" who takes appointments. Last time I was at one of those places (8 years ago maybe?), the policy was you sign up at a computer console at the desk...or at home...or on your smart phone while parking your car. Surpisingly I havent had an Apple product break in 8 years.

Pretty much. I was in one. Once. Even ignoring the stupidity of building a big glass nothing above ground and then making people walk down a narrow stairway to the actual store, once you get inside it's more like a museum than anything. It's basically the antithesis of everything a man would want when shopping because if your goal is to go in, get something specific and get out well fark you right in the eye because this is a lifestyle, not a store.

So if you want a part that is an external accessory, they have those readily available to buy at Apple stores. If you want the part free, wait your turn. If the part needs to be installed, it's probably not on the sales floor because dumb ladies like in TFA typically cant service their own Apple products.

I know it's a great injustice that not every dumbass with a screwdriver is encouraged to root around the insides of Apple gear.

No they have shelves and you can buy stuff off them. They also have tech support and products you can try before you buy. I think they probably have classes on putting photos in a slide show for granny too. I've been in the closest to me (King of Prussia) a few times and it wasn't so repellent to me.

Most people are dumbasses (including a lot of IT folks), so what's your point?

I assume you're aware of the fact that the MacBook Pro is just a rebadged PC with a massive markup running OS X by default, right?

The chipsets are the same, yes, but OS is the real selling point. I consider not busting the thing open constantly to futz around or add cheap, third party components to be a feature.

Never cared about messing with the PC because it rarely functions the way I want it to anyway. Seriously...I have to reboot the Mac like once a month or month and a half and it's old by technology standards (due for an upgrade this year). I've already rebooted the PC many times this month and it's a few months old. If they were truly the same, and the PC actually has heftier specs, the Mac wouldnt constantly be outperforming the PC now would it?

I didn't wail like this lady in question but can sure sympathize with her mood.
Perhaps her situation didn't warrant this tantrum but this type of un around happens all the time.

Reactions of people looking at this video:
Everyone Else: "OMG, that woman is totally crazy, doesn't she realize how crazy she looks?"
Tech Support: "What? This is usually how people greet us when they have a problem. They just remember events differently."

How people remember it: "I was definitely civil, spoken like a Greek orator, totally in command of myself, compliant in every way, and they still refused to lift a finger to help me! I guess that's why they work in the basements of buildings / are kept away from interacting with REAL people."
How it actually went down: "Client came in while several techs were trying to find out why the SAN refused to come up. Client was acknowledged, and seen to within 5 minutes. This was apparently too long a wait for client, who responded by flipping (slamming) his / her laptop down on the bar; a look over to the network admin told us that we were a no-go for taking him / her down with the .44 Mags that are stored under our desks for 'data security' purposes; straws were broken out, and Erny pulled the short straw; Erny spoke with the client, who glared at Erny (who despite his 300lbs+, was a Marine once upon a time...until he stepped on a land mine) with a domination stare....Erny stares past client, and reminisces of being in the Marines; client then insinuates that Erny knows why he / she is there, and that they want their laptop fixed now; Erny works for an organization that has 8,000 employees, and receives hundreds of emails a day...he asks the client to remind him exactly the email said; client goes on a tirade for several minutes, making various outrageous accusations about conspiracies involving IT, sounding similar to a howler monkey while in heat; the network admin (read: Deus Ex Machina), having had enough of this, decides to join Erny, if only to see if the client recognizes who he is, and whether they want to play 'Heaven or Hell' this week. Client doesn't recognize him, but does recognize the grey hairs of someone older...and narrowly avoids finding out how close they are to losing their job. Erny asks client again for information...hands out a piece of paper, asking for username, password, and description of problem; client fills it in; Erny reads it, tells the client that it will take a day or two to fix (SAN comes first, in the same way that plugging the holes in a sinking battleship comes before getting the ice dispenser working again). Client has a hissy fit, talks about getting Geek Squad / friend to fix it...decides to leave it here. Laptop is reimaged the following morning, after replacing two of the hard disks in the SAN, and spending several hours on the phone with the vendor, detailing why their latest firmware fix was anything but (turning off the fans is a no-no)."

Of course the same could be said about the person helping this lady. maybe their spouse just left them, the landlord hasn't fixed the a/c for weeks and they just found out their kid has cancer and this customer is screaming that she can't get her ipad fixed while also owning an iphone, macbook pro and air.

I have a cheap-ass Dell workstation running Windows sitting right next to me that hasn't been restarted since May 8th according to the 'net statistics server' command. And according to the system log from 5/8 gpupdate was what initiated the restart so it was just becasue I was testing a new Computer GPO, not because there was any problem. And it's not like it just sits there, it's what I use every day to manage all the Windows servers.

In fact, almost nobody in the office ever has to reboot for anything but updates once a month.

But, yea, I'm sure the problem isn't you, it's the operating system you're using...

The apple stores were a lot better before the iphone.  You could walk in and walk right up the genius bar and get help. Now of course every idiot has an iphone and instead of going online to Apple support forums to figure out how to fix their issue they have to run to the apple store.

Seriously, this. It doesn't matter to a total stranger what is happening in my life that is casing me to stress or be upset. All they know about me is how I am acting toward them in whatever situation and asshole behavior typically gets an asshole response. Does everyone just forget basic rules of interaction from farking kindergarten? Treat people how you want to be treated. This doesn't mean lie down and take it when someone is being a raging asshole to you to begin, but don't be the initiator.

Musikslayer: It was on the cusp of going one way or the other.


You're kidding. Was it the the idea that a parent with a dying child was actually more stressed about garden party hair styles, sub-par mimosas, and a smudged screen on an iPad mini that made you think I was being serious?

skozlaw: It won't win any contests, but I think our longest running machine is a red hat box that's been up for over 3 years now. I would have thought it was going on 7 years but I guess somebody must have had a reason to shut it down at some point, though I can't imagine what it would have been.


Run a core system update? Or power failure? With the update option, sure you could update the kernel live by unhooking everything, but that often leads to instability, it's better to do a reboot. As for this machine's uptime? Will never get past 31 days (It's my work desktop, mandated updates via corporate)

My point was simply that the person I was responding to was complaining that he needed to frequently restart a Windows PC, and only restart a Mac about once a month. I just set up a server at home, low power. Eager to see what kind of uptime I can get on it

skozlaw: elysive: I've already rebooted the PC many times this month and it's a few months old.

I have a cheap-ass Dell workstation running Windows sitting right next to me that hasn't been restarted since May 8th according to the 'net statistics server' command. And according to the system log from 5/8 gpupdate was what initiated the restart so it was just becasue I was testing a new Computer GPO, not because there was any problem. And it's not like it just sits there, it's what I use every day to manage all the Windows servers.

In fact, almost nobody in the office ever has to reboot for anything but updates once a month.

But, yea, I'm sure the problem isn't you, it's the operating system you're using...


I use resource heavy apps on both systems right now and I'll admit the PC was up for many months before I started actually started stressing it. As for the Mac I already said it's old. When it was newer I dont remember having to restart it at all. Reboots are just one element of the user experience that makes Apple superior for recreational use for me. Lag, stability of programs, etc etc also are important.

When it comes to professional use, lets just say we're used to getting annoyed here so lag and having all the USB ports stop functioning on a windows laptop is just more billable time.

Why do you care so much that Apple users be put in their place? The PC is a fine tool. If MS actually stuck with some of its older designs I'd probably enjoy using its OS a bit more.

/Vista onwards has had really terrible user interfaces imho

Typical Apple consumer.
