Was in a Walmart today.. there was a poor guy who was about to buy himself a Compaq computer. My girlfriend and I walked by him talking about how it's just plain silly to buy a computer from a place like Walmart
1) Most of the Walmart people have no idea what's inside them
2) Most of the Walmart people could not fix the system if there was problems
3) Most of the Walmart people don't care about the products in their store...
4) They're overpriced and better deals could be had elsewhere.
5) They come with a 15 day warranty, instead of a 1-5 year warranty that other companies offer.
The guy looked a little worried after hearing us. He kept looking at his system he was about to buy, then at us.
My girlfriend and I walked back to the electronics section and were looking at video games and the like. At that point the guy who was buying the computer came back to the electronics section with a Walmart employee and they began searching for something the guy had lost.
Nearby there was a neatly stacked pile of computers in boxes... the same model the guy who was searching for his lost item had. The Walmart guy literally ran and jumped ON to the pile of boxes, knocking one over. He then proceeded to stand ON TOP of said boxes, and looked around the area for whatever the guy was missing.
The guy who was buying the computer then asked the Walmart guy if he often searches for lost articles by standing on the computers. The scary part?
Walmart guy: "Yes I do."
The dude buying the system promptly returned it to the pile and left the store.
lol, it was kind of funny to watch.
I believe this story is true.
I have been into a Walmart around my area. I only go because my mother and sister shop there. As soon I go in, I go my seperate way and head on over to computers, electronics, dvd's, etc... I personally wouldn't buy anything there.
I, however, feel you could of help the guy out. You obviously know more about computers and you said yourself most of your posts offers helpful advice. That could have been your good deed for the day.
Anyway, people should know better than to buy a computer from a Walmart type of store.
