Sup J-dog! Just get home from school?
nah, i've been home for a few hours, my school gets out really early, 2:15
I had Quiz-bowl after school, so I didn't get home until 4:30. I love being able to drive, I can get home before 6:00 now! (mom works)
Quiz-bowl, that club is at my school too, I wanted to join it but I wouldn't have time, with work and all......
Maybe I should get a job? I could always use more money for games and an computer parts.
What ever you do, don"t be a dishwasher, IT SUCKS ASS! you scrub hot dishes and get covered in food and by the time you quit your dead tired and you smell like shit.
I take it you did this once?
I still do sadly.......i only keep doing it because my girlfriend is the owners daughter and i get paid well.
I'd want to either get a job at some gaming store or CompUSA. I wouldn't have to work hard at either.
I worked at Best Buy for a few months but they didnt pay enough so i quit.
You mean you get paid more for washing dishes!!!? Dude! Don't dump your girl friend anytime soon.
Get a job at futureshop. They hire any dumbass who doesn't know shit about anything.
I'm sorry. The people there just piss me off. If you get a job at a computer store you can help the world with mac advocacy.
Ah, they know the difference, they PURPOSELY don't hype macs because Apple doesn't give spiffs for selling IBM machines. Well, at least they didn't. There's also more margin selling garbage to morons who don't know better. Why sell a Mac with a 20% markup (if that) when you can sell El Beige-o Box Du Week and make twice that? Besides, they all have removable front plates now, so you can have any color you want! And after all, isn't the color of your computer the only REAL reason to by a PC? Who wants a Mac? They're just bought by Elite snobs, not like the good-ol-boy joe sixpack who thinks a mouse is some sort of new fangled sex toy! Look, it's got a ball! Razzafraggin Sumbitches.
Sorry, snapped there. Feeling better now.
Odd thing is, computer people in stores like futureshop run on commission, and macs are more expensive than pc's. So logically, it'd be better for them if they sold more macs.
Or they're just idiots.
Macs, thats why I'll work at a, "The Computer Store" all macs.... nuff said
But the commission works on margin, if I'm not mistaken, and there's more margin with PCs than Macs, even if the Macs cost more.
Oh, right. There's more mark-up on pc's because they're cheap pieces of junk that they can buy low and sell high.
Its cool how a totaly pointless post between Keeksy and myself can turn into somthing slightly immportant.
The signal to noise ratio is rarely 1:1, but we try to get as close as possible.
