you ever notice that they're right up your butt as soon as you walk in? Ranting I mean, you're lucky if you get ten feet in the door. And it's always the same kind of thing:

me: <walking in the door>
Radio Shack Stalker : "Can I help you?"
me: <sigh> "I'm just looking for a cable to hook up my stereo that I found through Slickdeals.net"
Radio Shack Stalker: "Let me show you the wide assortment of crap we have"
me: "Wow, this stuff is friggin' expensive"
Radio Shack Stalker: "Well, it's gold_plated so and so.., what you really need to have the correct impedience..blah blah blah..."
me: "Hmm... OK, thanks" <then when Radio Shack Stalker begins to talk to Radio Shack Fellow Stalker about all things audio, I quietly leave, and go to Target where I buy what I want for about 3 bucks.

end of rant

are they trained to assume that we don't know what we want?? I swear, it wouldn't be so bad if they could just tell me where the AV connectors are and I ciould look for myself. But no, they have to find exactly what I need, which usually involves me giving some painful, non-technically correct explanation of what i'm looking for Mad

I'll let you guys in on a secret. They are on pure commission. My brother is an assistant manager at the one here. I always walk in there and yell, "Stay away vultures!" They get a kick out of it. They also fight each other for customers hoping it's someone that wants to buy a cell phone. That's where they make the most money. Then, they hit you up for the accessories, giving them an extra $50 in commission and spiffs. I always call him a sheister because he talks 80 year old women out of their pants on a daily basis. But, he makes damn good money!!

As for the price match question, I don't think so. But, I'll check. I doubt it because all their stuff is ridiculously expensive.

but they still act that way when there's only one of them in the store.

I think they have some good deals, when they are on clearance that is.

I wonder how Radio Shack stays in business. The one across the street from my house gets very little business. I walked in a few weeks ago asking them about their $5 camera watches (was posted as a Slickdeal but I didn't mention that) because it said you can pick one up instore as well as online. The dipshits their told me they haven't sold that kind of product in years. Well I just left afterwards, probably didn't sell it because it was under $20 which is probably non-existant at a Radio Shack store. Bastards.
