    To buy my sister a Mac Mini. I find an employee and he introduces me to their "Mac Genius, he knows EVVVVVERYTHING and anything you can imagine about Macs and can help you further".

    So sale begins and all and while we're waiting for his manager to confirm to give me a $50 student discount, I ask him if he by any chance got a confirmation from Apple yet when they will be releasing Snow Leopard.

    And he says "probably around the end of Oct. or Nov."

    ....

    I was shocked. He works as supposedly a Mac Genius (in Best Buy, but nonetheless) And doesn't even know it's supposed to be released around September. If he was even slightly interested in Apple/Macintosh all it would take was one visit to get some (very valuable) info about Snow Leopard at Apple's page to know when the estimated release date is. So he obviously doesn't even know what's new in SL if he doesn't know the release date yet he works as a Mac Genius while I can't even find a job outside my college myself.

    I hate people

    Did he know anything else he was talking about?

    I didn't let him talk afterwards. All he asked was "do you already have a monitor?" "Do you need any software with it?" and "So which Best Buy insurance plan do you want, 1 year or 2" (NEITHER, dumbass! Not getting any further commission from me.)

    I know exactly what you mean... Slap a shirt with an Apple logo on a random Best Buy employee and they're a genius. :D

    The best was the old Comp USA store within a store days... those guys/gals were complete tools.

    I think your first problem was going to a Best Buy.
    Best Buy is for buying, not questions. :D
    Walk in with what you want in mind, tell the nice monkey to bag it, and be on your way.
    That had me lol-ing.
