My brother Mitch’s version of heaven can be a very frustrating place. Especially during the holidays.
I went to Frys today to pick up a new phone … the cordless phone in the family room is beginning to give up it’s ghost and I figured it was time to get a new one.
I decided to get a 5.8ghz expandable phone system. Unfortunately the two line versions of this kind of phone tend to have all the extra bells & whistles, including answering machine, so I ended up spending a bit more than I wanted … but I think I got a good system.
I wander around Frys a bit more … just browsing … and then go to the checkout. Talk about a madhouse.
They have about 20 registers open … and a person directing you to the next register that is open (signified by a flashing green light). I was directed to register #7 … but there were 3 people in line there. Turns out the guy running that register didn’t know that, when you were helping a customer, you shut off the green flashing light.
Luckily a nearby register opened up within a minute … otherwise I would have called for their floor manager and lodge a complaint.
