The microphone on my Nintendo DS Lite broke a couple days ago, so I took it back to the Maidstone branch of GAME. The tills were quite busy, so instead I went to a scrawny little chav idling around. His ID tag had the title of “Sales Assistant”, which made me think he would know what he was talking about. This is an exact transcript of the conversation I had with him:
- Hi, the mic on my DS is broken.
- Ok, I think you need to send it back to Sony.
- Sony? Why would I send it to them?
- Yeah, Sony make them.
- Sony make the Nintendo DS?
- Yeah I think so.
At that point, I made my excuses and joined the queue for the tills, where a helpful staffer took my DS, went into the back of the shop for five minutes, and then returned with a brand spanking new DS, no fuss.
Perhaps they should train their staff more, or just not hire complete idiot chavs as sales assistants.
