Well, worked out a bargain with my Son to get him a midi controller that he wanted in return for work around the house and tracking drums for me. Guitar Center is about the only place close by that has the stuff so that's where we went. The controllers are inexpensive and after we poked around I spotted a shelf full of them behind the counter in the recording/keys/midi department I stood there at the counter trying to get someone to make eye contact and no luck. Finally walked over to someone who may or may not have been actually working. He asked if I needed something and I told him "Yes, I have been waiting for a while just trying to get some help. Pretty soon I will just have to go back and climb up and get it myself." I got the stink eye for my remark. He called for help and a woman with a name tag that said "Customer Service Manager" finally came over. She apologized for my having to wait and then decided it was a good time for, on my 99 dollar purchase to "we have a service and insurance policy on this it would be 28 dollars" "No thanks." "It covers everything even replacement for 28 dollars..." "No, a 28 dollar policy on a 99 dollar unit is a bad deal," "It's a lot less expensive than replacing..." "Do you guys have a SPIF or a commission on this? I do not want it." So she gets pissy and rings me up. On the way out, the Kid is super pissed at me for my behavior. Sigh. Says it was embarrassing.
