I walk into RS, and there was one lone employee at the register. So I ask for his help, show him my netbook and busted adapter, and he's very helpful with getting me a new cord in my price range. He was not the culprit of the bad service. He was awesome, and I wish good things on him. What happened next made it a bad experience.
Several minutes into our exchange, another employee comes out from the back, and immediately starts hovering around the guy helping me. And every time I said anything, he would chime in with some offer to sell me stuff. If I mentioned the netbook, he told me he could sell me a new one, or some extra doo-dad for it. When I mentioned my cell phone (because I'm thinking of getting a spare charger), this guy started telling me I should buy a brand new cell phone from him! Really...If I mentioned my cats, he prolly would have tried to sell me a carrier or a new cat or something.
I'm pretty sure RadioShack goes on commissions (please correct me if I'm wrong), but this was uncalled for. I got the feeling that the second guy was trying to steal/undermine the helpful guy's sale, and get the money for himself. Whatever the cause, I'm actually glad I didn't get him in the first place...I'd spend the entire time with him trying to sell me the whole store.
