    The guys that walk in with the ad? The customer that just asks tons of questions then leaves? Or how about the guy that wants to just price match everything?  
     
    Just curious as to who bothers you the most.

    I can't stand people who complain about Windows 8 and how there are no new Win 7 computers in the store, then complaining about having to pay for the windows 7 shell. I know windows 8 isn't perfect, but quit being lazy and deal with change. It only takes about a week to get used to if you aren't completely retarded.

    If it's an Indian/Asian walking in with the ad, fuck em... you can't change their minds... but most other races you need a little convincing to make some $$ off them.  
     
    The customers who come to learn and buy nothing are the worst. Learn their faces so that you know to stay away from them next time.  
     
    Do the same with the guy who wants to price match everything (learn faces)... but most of the time for me they either want to match from places like eBay or it's a completely different product. Easy denial.  
     
    I personally hate the ones who are absolutely computer illiterate who really need to buy a computer, but are hesitant every step because they think you are ripping them off and question everything. Of course, they are also the ones who never wanna buy PSC or software. They usually want the cheapest computer possible with nothing else. Pure thrift.

    I fucking hate when people come in and want to hook up their computer to their old ass 1990 TV, and they want HD audio & video.
    Also, I hate the mother fuckers who think they can do anything with cables. This one guy said he wants to connect his PS3 to his phone so he can play games on it. I told him it wasn't possible and he cried about how he knows someone who did it. Also, I hate the Asians that only want the on sale "tony"(Sony) computers and the Indians/middle Eastern's who say "My friend, I buy laptop and you give me free anti-virus" *Most stereotypical indian voice you can imagine*- I tell them I cannot do that and then they hit me with the "But I pay cash, I buy laptop with cash you give me free anti-virus" I DON'T GIVE A FLYING FUCK IF YOU PAY CASH, CREDIT, ETC. Fuck outta' here!....Alright I'm done. For now.

    It depends on the person, you are a prime candidate.  
     
    I have seen you troll these forums for years. While people have come and gone, your consistency is almost annoying. You are either independently wealthy and have nothing better to do, or have some unrelinquishable fetish with how the company treated you in the past and you alleviate yourself by coming here.

    These are also my favorite types of customers (prepare for a geek conversation):  
     
    Customer: I'm looking for a power supply to run my graphics card.  
    Me: What type of card?  
    Customer: High end, it's a GTX 780 and I have a 6 core i7 CPU with 32GB RAM.  
    Me: Nice, that's one hell of a X79 gaming PC. I recommend a solid PSU, a higher end Corsair or Antec will do very well for you.  
    Customer: I read that the 780 only needs 600W to run. This Coolmax 600W is pretty cheap, I think I'll pick that up.  
    Me: I DO NOT recommend you doing that. With such a high end system you're gonna NEED a high end PSU to run it. I recommend this Corsair 750W 80 plus gold rated one, it'll do the job very well and give you a bit of headroom.  
    Customer: Why would I pay $130 for that when I can pay $60 for something that will work?  
    Me: That Coolmax WON'T work, wattage is not about everything. You need 42 amps on your 12V rail just to run that GPU, and you have to consider all the other high end components in your computer. That Coolmax will put out 36 amps MAX, so that's a no go. The power supply is the LAST thing you want to skimp on especially when you have such a high end system. You get what you pay for.  
    Customer: I think you're just saying that to upsell me. *Grabs Coolmax PSU anyways and runs off*  
    Me: Suit yourself...  
     
    A day or two later, that Coolmax PSU is back on the shelf with a "reduced price" sticker. :) I also had a sadistic hope that the power supply fried his entire $3000 system :)

    Those shitty Coolmax power supplies cost $35. We really shouldn't even be carrying them. All they do is cause problems with our dirtbag cheap ass customers. Most customers are smart enough not to buy those pieces of shit but there's just enough idiots that will buy anything that's cheap enough regardless of the consequences. Like r3j3ct, I've spent years talking people out of buying that literal piece of shit. Serge, if you're reading this, change that garbage power supply to W status TODAY. It's a useless piece of shit and you know it.

    I completely agree with Flea. I pop on this website every now and then to see what's going on, and ObiWan is probably the only lame fuck that consistently posts annoying shit on here, and thinks he's the king of the forum.... I honestly want to know what else your life consist of. On another note, I'd be more than happy to private message you my info or whatever so we can meet at least half way so that I can show you my "cajones" and say whatever I want in your face.

    @ObiWan - I actually have had a customer ask me about connecting their GS5 to their CRT monitor via MHL.  
     
    The rest was there for exaggeration
  7.  permalink
    100% agreed with DeezNuts. Especially when these people are as arrogant as they are clueless.

    Scenario 1
    Customer: I need a USB to HDMI.
    Me: Do you need to add an HDMI video out to a computer?
    Customer: No the HDMI on my TV stopped working so I need a USB to HDMI for my TV's usb port.
    Me: Uhh that doesn't work that way. (Sometimes this goes over well, sometimes they act like a complete ass despite the fact that I saved them the wasted time of buying and returning the item)

    Scenario 2
    Customer: I need, a USB, to USB!!!! cable!!!
    Me: Which devices are you connecting?
    Customer: My printer to my computer.
    Me: Ok I have USB A to USB B cables over here.
    Customer: Huh?
    Me: You know, a "regular" USB to USB "square" cable.
    Customer: The last guy sold me that. It's the wrong one. Why does no one here know what they are talking about? My Printer has a regular USB plug in it.
    Me: The front USB port on your printer is for a flash drive. This square shaped usb is on the BACK of your printer. This is the correct cable. (Most of the time, they are happy after this. Most of the time...)

    Scenario 3
    Customer: I need an HDMI to yellow red and white.
    Me: Ok we have these converter boxes over in the computer department. Which devices are you connecting?
    Customer: Isn't this the computer department? (Irrelevant)
    Me: Let me take you over there.
    Customer: I'm hooking up my Blu Ray player to my old TV.
    Me: Ok well the number 1 reason that these get returned is because of an issue with converting blu ray players to old TVs. There's this thing called HDCP....
    Customer: I don't care, I'll take this one thanks.
    Me: Ok but it's not going to work.
    Customer: My friend said it will work.
    Me: Ok, see you tomorrow. (The wording here isn't an exaggeration at all.)

    Let's see:

    Customers that come in to only buy water/soda cause it's on promo code.
    You know you can get water pretty much any grocery store/Walmart for the same price (maybe like 8 cents more) EVERY day without a code.

    Customers that do in store pickups for promo code items (which if you read the email that is sent with the promo code, it quite clearly says they are NOT supposed to be able to do so).
    They just come up to the registers and don't actually shop in the store, thus it make them spend less $.

    Anybody that refuses to put their cart in a cart return.
    Not next to the return, not in a parking space, not up on the grass, and not in the middle of the exit area...

    People that make a mess in the restroom, seriously if I did that at your house, you would kick me out.
    Also the same thing applies to the garbage cans outside the store.
    We are NOT the dump, empty your car out at home or at least in a large dumpster, not the trash cans outside the store.
    It's ridiculous how many used diapers show up in there...

    People who buy stuff that's like $10 and give you a freaking hundred dollar bill...

    Idiots who buy a very large item (especially TVs) and ALWAYS seem to bring the smallest car possible.
    Did you just decide on the spur of the moment to buy a $2000 TV, and all you have to transport it is a really small car?
    Or perhaps you do have a large car, but everybody came along to the store, and if you put it in your car, where are they gonna sit?

    People who decide to not buy something and just stick it wherever they feel like it.
    Big deal it's in the wrong section of the store, let's just put this $200 hard drive in a spot marked $9.99...

    Lol, you guys had so much problems when you worked.  
    Guess I was lucky.  
    The worst customer? the customer who yells about shit through the store about how upset they are with no explanation.  
    There was another one asking for a sale item that wasn't the item they had "but the ticket was there" it was a bunch of Extender antennae strewn about. Too tired to argue.  
    Both have happened at least...once?  
    So yeah, I never had a bad customer I couldn't handle. I had more customers pull the "this is this item thing", and if it was in the wrong place it was honored and I took care of it before anyone else could take advantage...and if it wasn't I sternly told the customer why they couldn't, apologizing profusely of course but that's already my MO.

    When I used to work at returns, I would often deal with customers who would bring in items that they obviously bought from another store, but would instead bring it to us for store credit.
