Buys..... Worst Advice
I walked out.
other day I was looking into spending some money on a high tech goody or two.
Cash in hand (I really just had my check book with me).
As I was right by a Best Buys, I went on it.
then walked right over to the Digital Cameras and the Video Cameras. I walked around the display and played with a few items.
After ten minutes I undertook a tougher task...
then spent the next five minutes walking around the store looking for a sales
person. I finally found their video
guy (note this was on a Tuesday in the afternoon.
The store was almost empty).
walked back over to the video stuff. I
told the sales person the following:
need to take both still Digital pictures and Videos.
I am looking to see if I want to get a digital Camera and a Video Camera,
or just a Video Camera that can do both."
then showed me a Sony with a price upwards of $2000.00.
I told him I had a cap on my total purchase of no more than about
$800.00. He then showed me another
Sony for about $1300.00. I again
stated my spending cap. I asked
"do you have any Video Cameras that can do both for under $800.00?”
He flat out told me "No, we don't have any.
In fact no one makes one for under $1000.00".
I then pointed to one priced at about $600.00 with a description that
said it did do both. He told me,
"Oh, that sign is on the wrong model".
I pointed out that the model numbers matched.
He then told me" O.K. it does do both, but I know you really want to
spend at least $2000.00".
then told him he did not know shit (yes I said it to him) and I walked out.
I could see the only thing he was interested in was what was the best
commission he could make, not what I wanted or needed.
