Today, I bought a brand new flat screen TV. When I brought it home it didn't work. Furious, I walked into Best Buy and yelled at a guy in a tucked in blue polo and khakis. I asked him why it didn't work and he said he didn't know. I kept screaming. He didn't have a nametag. He didn't work there. FML

Even if he had a name tag, why would you yell at him? "Hey, you work here! You must know exactly what's wrong with the TV I bought from some other employee a while ago! "

YDI for just walking in and yelling. This should go to notalwaysright.com

Aug, pay attention more. I'd say YDI.

me too. but I hav to say that is hilarious.

IMPROV EVERYWHERE!

agreed. BUT THAT WOULD BE HIS FML NOT YOURS

it's people like you that make customer service a bitch

What does that mean

That is a great website! You get more bees with a spoonful of honey than a shovelful of shit.

But I don't want bees

Even if he had a name tag, why would you yell at him? "Hey, you work here! You must know exactly what's wrong with the TV I bought from some other employee a while ago! "

notice, the op never mentioned that the tv was plugged in

took the words out my mouth. if people were more courteous things would probably get done a lot faster and with no headaches.

Poorly guy. FHL not yours OP.

I agree with #2. And yelling gets you nowhere anyway and it's incredibly rude. No one working at Best Buy is directly responsible for your TV not working, especially not some innocent employee. It's the company that made the tv.

Yeah, really. This is one of those bitchy customers who no one likes and causes a scene. Where I worked we would always mock these people. The nicer ones we usually helped more, but if they scream, we'd refuse service.

Why the hell would you yell at an employee, anyway? Wtf. Chill! Take a deep breath, let it out.... End.... shoot yourself in the face for being a tool.

What a marvelous display of your (lack of) social skills! What were you thinking, by the way? "Hm, my TV isn't working. Forget that Best Buy doesn't even make these TVs, I'm just going to YELL at the first person in the store who appears to be an employee. " You seriously deserved it.

Ha-ha, I agree with #2. I thought of Notalwaysright as soon as I read the first two lines. But seriously, yelling at the employees will get you nowhere. You probably did something wrong.

but the part about being wrong didn't appear in the first 2 lines.

two words... Anger Management!!!

he can be summed up in 1 word: ignorant

Be even funnier if it turns out he hadn't connected it up properly or something

your profile pic was my fav little kid book. I still have it somewhere... FOUND IT!!!! and op learn to calm the fuck down. all you do is talk to manager/ someone expeirienced and ask about a refund or exchange.

Probably didn't

It would be funnier if the tv wasn't plugged in. I bet the problem could easily be solved by reading the manual.

Speaking as someone who has worked plenty of retail and customer service jobs, and who has also been screamed at by customers for something that is completely beyond the employer's control, you definitely deserved that one. Way to throw a hissy fit because you couldn't get something to work; How old are you, five? And taking it out on the first person you saw, who wasn't even an employee I might add, makes you look even worse.
