Best Buy, Speakeasy, huh?

If you want to IM me to explain how much you hate Best Buy, and will now never consider, or are canceling, your Speakeasy account, don't bother.

I've already gotten a dozen IM's this morning on this topic.

The best way I can describe the announcement is this:

You are in a really funky, out of the way, atmosphere filled restaurant, and they bring a plate of food to your friend.

It looks awesome.

You think about ordering it.

Then the waiter comes out and spits in it.

You then hope your meal doesn't come out awful, because your backup plan was to order what your friend had, that is no longer an option.

A representative from Mc Donalds then walks in the front door and offers you a Big Mac.

At this point you hope you wake up from the nightmare.

You aren't wearing pants.

Ewww.... your post made me actually feel like I was in a Best Buy...

I think I will go mail order something to make myself feel better.

Funny... the last time we bought something at Best Buy (our Clearwire setup) we got good customer service, no attmept to up-sell us (actually, they suggested we not up-buy as it may not have been the best deal for us)... and we got our rebate in record time.

That being said... Bleh on Best Buy in general.
