More Actual RadioShack Hilarity

Me: I'm looking for an iGo tip? Number A-43?

The Drone goes to check, then comes back holding two tips that are of no use to me.

Drone: We have A-42? And A-44?
Me: (shaming him) Those aren't actually "A-43," though, are they?
Drone: (ashamed) No. (recovering) Are you sure there is an A-43?
Me: Very.

I back toward the door.

My daughter's comment on Radio Shack:

"You've got questions. We've got blank stares."

It's always reassuring when the salesperson (i.e. the representative of the terrific company) has to ask the customer if HE'S sure that a certain model exists. Because it's crazy to assume that the representative for the company would have access to that kind of info or be the final authority on that type of thing. This is the kind of experience that reminds me (on a daily basis) why it's such a good thing I don't carry a gun or a bow and arrow or a cannon.

Ellen, your daughter is hilarious.

Sydelle, you should be armed immediately.
