No such thing as a free lunch, or a set schedule.

No such thing as a free lunch, or a set schedule.

My adoring public need me tomorrow at noon. So my weekend gets to be split up. I hate doing splits, they hurt…

Speaking of work I guess I don’t really talk about it that much anymore. Mostly because it’s pretty laid back compared to every other job that I’ve had. Tonight we had a 9pm release for a couple games; Gears of War and Madden 15. I think we only had two people show up. :v

We’ve also been selling a bunch of small TV’s. I wish we earned commissions because the paychecks would look a lot more nice.

I guess if I had to complain about anything tonight it would be this one guy that frequently comes in. He’s the kind of guy that wants you to literally hold his hand through anything. He’ll just look at the device he buys and throw his hands in the air because it confuses him too much.

He wanted to downgrade his laptop from Windows 10 to Windows 8 because Skype isn’t working properly, in fact he brought his laptop in the other day because he wanted us to solve the problem for him. We confirmed that his audio device was working properly and told him that it was something with Skype itself and gave him suggestions on what to do. So he came in tonight and wanted someone to downgrade it for him. My co-worker who was acting as superior tonight decided to start the downgrade about an hour and 45 minutes before the store closed. It took forever… It had a 1.5 GHZ dual core processor and 4 GB of RAM and the drive was mechanical, not an SSD. He left the laptop with us, and I’m pretty sure that’s not allowed considering that as far as I’m aware he didn’t even buy the laptop from us… and I’m not even sure why my co-worker decided to do this. I hope he doesn’t get in trouble. I wouldn’t have even rolled the system back. I would have just told him to go online and search for instructions on how to do a rollback. Oh wait… I did tell him to do that the other day when he brought it in. I guess reading is too hard.

Hopefully the rollback goes ok. I’ve been reading up on Windows 10 and rollbacks and it hasn’t really been going as smoothly as planned. Needless to say I’m going to distance myself from this situation as much as possible. It’s pretty cheap of people to come in and expect us to do computer maintenance for free. If you bought the computer from us that’s one thing. But otherwise it isn’t something we are being paid for, and you’re an idiot if you think you’re special enough to warrant our help. No thank you, we don’t get paid neeeearly enough to put up with that bullshit.
