"Best Buy didn't want to honor the sale price of the 2GB flash drive Matt ordered through their website, so when Matt arrived to pick-up his purchase, the store's assistant manager called customer service and, pretending to be Matt, asked to cancel the order."

That's why yes-men work their way up the corporate ladder.

That asst. manager needs to have the piss beaten out of him for being such an ignorant ****ing toad.

they don't call it Worst Buy for nothing

that place preys on people that don't know about technology; i can't even describe some of the BS that their Geek Squad guys have tried to tell me. of course i never tell them that i fixed PC's half my life. though i do enjoy laughing in their face when they try to feed me their schpiel.

I worked at Best Buy on 95th. But I was the guy in the yellow shirt at the door. It's fun busting people stealing shit.

Wouldn't that be identity theft on the store's part? The assis Manager calling into cancel the order "pretending" to be the actual customer. I never shop there. Their stuff is just too over priced.

I hate hearing stories like this.

Unfortunately, they are opening a Best Buy within a 30 second drive, 5 minute walk from my house. I have a feeling I'll be wasting a lot of money there.

Big whoop, he couldn't take advantage of an obvious pricing error.

I guess I would be as angry as you too if chicks beat me up. I'll bet the only thing you've beaten up your whole life has been your little pud.

I dont usually buy electronics. I like to buy movies and games, does newegg sell those?

I do want an inexpensive ($100 or less) 320 GB 2.5" SATA Hard Drive, and I looked on newegg before, but I find it very hard to navigate.

Reading comprehension never has been your strong suit. Of course, I'm sure with the kudzu-like hair on your knuckles it's probably hard to make out the words on the computer screen as you give shiny box with moving scratchings a pensive look of amazement.
