Just to add to the twisted mind cruelty of abusing PCworld / Comet employees, I walked into Curries today, and had a look around the computers and laptops. EVERYTHING was Windows 7.
The lad came up to me and he says, “can I help you sir?” and with me being “in the know” and having such a sick mind I asked him, “Do you have any PC’s / Laptops that come with Ubuntu?”
He looked at me for 5 secs, very blanked out and then replied “What’s that?”, “What’s it called?” I thought, ugh! You call yourself a sales rep!
So I turned round and I said, “Ubuntu, does any of your PC’s come with U-BUN-TU!!!?”
Again, he blanked out and asked “What’s that?!” “A music band or something?” and then I pissed myself.
A music band really? How thick are these guys?
So again I turned around and said, “It’s a Linux distro.”
By this point he was so confused he turned round to his colleague and asked, “Have you ever heard of Ubuntu?” “I’ve never heard of it…”
His colleague turns round and says “Nope, never heard of that, what is it?” So again, I explain that it’s a Linux distro…
They both look at each other confused, you should’ve seen their faces. I could help but laugh. After they’ve finally stopped looking at each other, the guy you originally approached me says, “We have Windows 7. It’s simple, and fast.”
Then I thought - “hmm, should I cut him, or shouldn’t I?” … I cut him.
So I said, “Windows 7, pfft. Linux is securer, faster & simpler than Windows will ever be…” and then walked off.
The guy was left dazed, whilst I pissed myself laughing.
I love being cruel, you get such a kick out of it. I only went in to check what the prices for HDD’s where… they didn’t have ANY HDD’s. Weird or what?
