    So I have been without a job for over a year now.
    So one day my Mom comes home from work, and she tells me about how this guy from Geeksquad was there fixing something. Now she thinks just because I am descent with a computer I am guaranteed a fucking job at Geeksquad. [​IMG]

    THE FUCK?
    She is forcing me go to one today and bug them about a job.

    I mean the fuck?

    I can name a zillion reasons they would NOT hire me, and not a single reason they would.

    WHY THE FUCK DO PARENTS DO THIS SHIT?
    Does she think I enjoy sitting around all day bored out of my fucking mind?

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Well, what's geeksquad. But if you don't like it? Why don't try it? You say for yourself you don't like sitting all day bored?

    My mother spent months doing exactly the same thing. I got a similar job to the one you are looking at. I sell idiots who know nothing about electronics overpriced electronics for minimum wage. It sucks, but it's better than sitting at home.

    Plus, it will make you some money, it might be good bant, and it will please your mother. Besides, you'd be suprised at what you do actually know, and if not, you can probably bluff your way in- that's what I did.

    Might as well go for it. It's not like failing to get the job can make you more unemployed.

    if GeekSquad are anything like the TechGuys, then by knowing how to turn a PC on, you're already overqualified.

    Moms can be crazy. You have to wonder sometimes whether their logic board gets fried the moment they have a child.

    That aside...

    Geek Squad? What a fucking joke. At the Best Buy in my area they charge $89.99 for a virus scan. If you know how to scan for viruses, you can go work for them and charge suckers. And you get an employee discount at Best Buy.

    Make money doing stuff you already know and do for free anyway, get discounts in an electronics store. I can't see any reason not to, especially if you don't have a job and don't have anything better lined up at the moment.

    Speaking from experience, she'll bring it up *every* time you have a conversation about jobs. Seriously it'll drive you nuts. "You could've done this if you'd just...", yeah, learn from someone who's been there, apply anyway and dodge this bullet quick!

    Are you currently in school or doing something? If you're just sitting in your mothers house all day... well I think she might have the right to encourage you to work.

    And yes geek squad sucks, nonetheless it's more productive then sitting in the house.

    Dumb-ass, shitheel, ignorant waste of space. Like you have some kind of high morals and wouldn't lower yourself to work at Best Buy. Please. Not to come to their defense, but if Geek Squad are as inept as you make them out to be, you should fit right in.

    The vast majority of PC users know fuck all about fixing them. That's where people like me come in. I get paid $45 an hour, and there's a minimum 1 hour charge. Swap out a CD burner? Takes me less than 10 minutes, pays me $45. They need the job done, I can do it, and that's what my time is worth. Take or leave it.

    Go on Not Always Right, and there's a reason you don't want that job. Some of the computer related stories on there are dumb. Like a person asking someone to put the whole internet onto a floppy or someone bringing a microwave to customer service saying their Xbox wouldn't work on it.
