I have always been a happy apple user. I'm a former Apple Retail Employee (Mac Specialist) and I have always has great customer service when visiting apple until today. I recently purchased an ipad3 along with a stylus. My stylus had a cap that would allow me to plug it into the headphone jack when it was not in use. Big Mistake. The cap broke off and is now loged deep in the headphone jack rendering the port totally useless. So I went to the nearest apple store thinking this wouldn't be a big deal to fix and I'd be on my way. First, they were backlogged an hour on their appointments. Then, without seeing a genius another employee told me not to wait, I was told that there was nothing they would do to repair this. I purchased apple care but apparently this does not cover it. I was presented with two options. Pay 50% of the cost of the ipad (that was just purchased) or stick some superglue down there and hope for the best. Is it me, or are those options completely absurd? Has anyone had a smilar experience or know of some way to fix this? Should I go back and be completely ignorant?
