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.

assjuice: Try the sprint store. It is like the apple store, but run by know-nothing kids and full of meth head customers.

Going to some Sprint stores is pretty much the same as going to traffic court.

Yes, I immediately thought about that video -

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.

Hey, it's not like anybody made popcorn.


Oh, sorry. Want some?

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.

elysive: 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?

Are we still doing this? Uptime contests? Really?

Petit_Merdeux: TenJed_77: . But I would like to see Carrefour and Auchan hire more people

Auchan in La Défense was a place to be avoided at all costs. Especially after work. You couldn't even walk around the store because the queues stretched into the aisles.

If they hired more people, it would probably just be more loss-prevention guys.

Oh Lord, I remember shopping there.
I made it a point to go not more than once a month, and then only if I really needed it.  Everything else I got from the small stores in my local neighborhood (Suresnes).

The worst part was the family of 4 who had to walk abreast through the aisles, slooooooowly, as if they were visiting the Jardin des Tuilleries.

Arcanum: 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.

Why is this surprising? She's in a store that made its fortune by getting a bailout from Microsoft and selling to a demographic that wants everything now, easy, and someone else to fix the magic box when it stops talking.

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.

Thanks for being sensible, but threads like this are here for paid shills and brainwashed douchebags to parrot lame anti-Apple propaganda. Not only is the video fake, but so are some of the stories posted here.

I had to google 'conniption.'

n. Informal
A fit of violent emotion, such as anger or panic. Also called conniption fit.
[Mock Latin, perhaps influenced by snip or snap.]

(often plural) US and Canadian slang a fit of rage or tantrums

So tantrum in English then.
