There is a weird law in the universe. The large the hurry you are in, the better the chance that the employee at Radio Shack will grill you on your phone plan on the way out the door. After being a joke for every comedians in the future about them asking about batteries, they switched from pimping batteries to grilling you about your phone.
I went to TWO other stores praying they would have the cable I KNEW Radio Shack had. I didn’t want to have to deal with the check out process. I’m happy with my phone. I know you sell phones. I know you sell toys. I know what you do. I see you advertising.
I really just want my change. I just got my phone. I won’t be upgrading any time soon. Neither will anyone of my friends, family, or co-workers. Can I please just have my change? How about handing me my receipt and letting me get out?
