Ran over to Micro Center to pick up a new USB hub. Of course, I wandered into their Mac section (why Apple let's this shitehole sell it's products is beyond me). A lady is wheeling a 24" iMac to the register. I made a comment on what a nice machine it was and asked if she got a good deal since they were discontinued and replaced the other day. The salesmen comes running over and asks her if she needs help to the register. Funny, he didn't offer it before I began speaking with her. Apparently, he sold it to her at full retail. He also says that the new machines aren't out yet and that Apple would be shipping them in a few weeks. I decided to not even speak with him and addressed my comments to the lady. I told her that Apple announced the new 27" iMacs the other day and they were on display and in stock at the Apple Store as I was there last night. She asked me how much and I said $1,700. She turned to the sales rep and said she didn't want the 24" unless it was highly discounted. His response was, "the price is the price. I have no flexibility". She walked. A few minutes later, the manager comes over to me while I am waiting on line to check out. He was obviously pissed at me and said he didn't appreciate arm chair quarterbacks interfering with his sales professionals. I said, "Look, your salesman tried to sell a discontinued model at full retail and lied about the availability of the new ones. Is that how you do business?" He then asked me to leave without my purchase. I dropped the 2 items on the counter and started walking out. I turned around and asked for his name. He initially refused but I was getting louder and louder so he gave me his card. Then he said the cashier would ring up my purchases. I told him to forget it, I'd rather go out of my way and go to Best Buy to pick the items up. Can't wait to write the letter to his boss.
