Best Buy Sucks even more!(Best Buy is a shithole)
Friday. 1.13.06 10:19 pm
This entry inspired by cpkviperpheonix .

So I found a computer. That I can tolerate. It's actually quite sexy, and could be sexier if it were utilizing its full potential, not being bought from best buy, and i were just now getting rid of my old toshiba. It'd be the sexiest if i had my paws on it now, you know, available for store pickup?

But alas, none of those are true, so its only quite sexy.

So, I tried entering my address for shipping.

You know, the

Jessica H.
Room # Slusher Tower
Blacksburg Va, 24060-0015.

And the damn shipping thing tells me that my address is wrong.

WTF?

That's the address Tech tells us to use. So I try futzing with it.

Nope.

Street? Sure, I can pull one out of my ass... No Dice, Dearie.

So I give good ol' Best Buy a call.

Now when you need help from them, they give you the "buy stuff from us!" hold music/message. You know, the annoying "Wanna be a hero?" thing from the cheeky bastard that always repeats over the same annoying guitar riff.

But if you choose any option that concerns giving Best Buy money (regardless of if it's their own money), you get a lovely Jazz-y clip put on repeat. They even bother to tell you that "All associates are currently busy, please stay on the line, and your call will be taken in the order it was received."

Big difference there.

So I called the YYGU$$$ (Yay, You're Giving Us Money) line instead of the WSTGAS (We're Supposed To Give A Shit?) line, and alert the lovely person awaiting my hard-earned gift card/voucher to my dilemma. I want my item shipped to me, and no one else. I asked about buying a manufacturer warranty, as I didn't want theirs... (I knew the answer to this, I had to do it to humor Ma. :/)

She somehow has my school email address (bastards are stalking me, I tells ya) and creates me a nice lil account. She enters the exact same information I tried, and got the same answer.

She asked for a street name (I don't have one), and all sorts of other information that Virginia Tech deems Not Important (Yes, they have a big red stamp for that, I think it's applied to anything concerning student welfare or education in the College of Engineering...), and I told her I didn't have one, and that

Jessica H.
Room# Slusher Tower
Blacksburg Va, 24060-0015

was the only address I could give her.

She couldn't help me, and said that even if I placed my number over the phone, it still wouldn't take.

How nice of them. They want me to spend more money at their chain of wonderful stores, but yet won't ship me my laptop, because my address is bad.

I've never had a problem with it before, UPS, USPS, FedEx, DHL, even from China, I've gotten stuff delivered by them all and not had a problem.

Silly Best Buy.

Don't give them your money unless you absolutely have to (i.e. gift card(s), replacment vouchers, binding contract in which your life/soul/family/firstborn child depends)

-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-toot toot!

Now, on another note.

I got into a bit of racing on the Boulevard (in Col Hghts) today.

I pulled up next to an 05 Mustang, and being me, I had to be first off the line when the light turned green.

I wasn't. :/

So I was first off the line when the next light turned green.

We got to the light next to Waffle House, and I inched forward as to get closer to the white line.

The light in the Turn Left lane turned to a green arrow, and I thought, "whoa! Green light!" and almost put my foot on the gas, but then realized my light was still red. And so was hers.

The mustang was gone... >.<

Hope she didn't get in trouble.

I just wasted a dollar (20 mins on a .05 a min card) on hold with the bitches,

because

I STILL dont know where my voucher is...

What the fuck?

Now I have to spend *more* money to spend *more* time on the phone with them.

Fuckers.

I can deal with wasting a dollar on a lottery ticket, because it's entertainment, but wasting a dollar on crappy service? What the hell????

They've got my number, they can call.

Anyway.

I had an odd craving for garlic bread about 12 hours ago. So I walked to Giuseppe's, and got some.

It was a bit too buttery for my tastes, but it got the job done.

It was only a 30 minute walk, too.

Now it's raining outside, bleh.

Guess it's time to start looking for a new computer,

Oh, apparently my vouchercard came today. Granpa just told me.

How nice.

It's for 1889.99

And then I've got an additional 250...

Whoa, that's a good 40 more than I was expecting... or maybe 10 dollars less than I was expecting. Whatever, 2140 is better than the 2100 I'd expected, and much better than the 2050 I'd figured I'd get with the 1799 price...

Ok, no more complaints. :p

i needa go put my checks in the bank, im quite poor.

i seem to be blowing through money this year.

i think perhaps it has something to do with my feeling bad.

apparently i have a tendency to spend more money when i feel awful.

thats a comforting thing to know.

comforting indeed.

one day ill be dirt poor

and ill have to go to one of those places and do the "whos the man, i got me some cash" jig out side of a car title for money place...

fuck.
