What line of work should I be in? Now, they don’t let me sell computers at BB cuz I’m too honest with the customers, and refuse to sell cheap ass piece of shit computers to people who are on a tight budget. I tell them truthfully, “You’d be better off to wait, save your money, and buy something you can be proud of.” I’m fucking honest with the customer. I don’t guide them to something that will ‘work’, I tell them what they honestly need, what they should get, and show them the model that would work best for them. They say they want something that’ll work for 4 years, I tell them it’s not gonna happen. I tell them to either get the nicest thing we have, and be happy if it still runs everything they need it to in 3 years, or I tell them get a slower machine and upgrade next year. If someone comes in and says “I want this and this and this and only want to pay this much”, and we can’t get them a quality machine that’s got what they want for that much, I tell them they’re gonna have to break down and pay more to get what they want. I’m dead fucking honest with these people when they come in, I don’t sell them what they don’t need, and don’t try to sell them what they don’t want. Is there something wrong with me, or them? Are people such stupid fucking cows they want to be lied to and sold a piece of shit?! I know shitloads more than most people in there, but my numbers are terrible. When I didn’t know about the machines as well, I did great. I’ve noticed the three people who sell the most know jack shit about computers. The three people that know the most sell jack shit. What’s the fucking deal!? Should I sell something I don’t know about? No, cuz how I am, I’d learn all about it, then my numbers would suffer. I’m a good salesman, and when I want to be, extrememly convincing. But FUCK! Seriously, though (as if the rest of this rambling bastard isn’t), what line of work should I be in? I know TONS about computers, peripherals, accessories, upgrades, car audio, car mechanics, car performance, home audio, home video, component systems, etc. What should I be doing? I’m killing myself right now… SOMEONE help me find a line of work where I can tell the customer the truth, answer all their questions truthfully, inform them as to what they truly do and don’t need, and still get paid…?
We are the children of the Eighties. We are not the first “lost generation” nor today’s lost generation; in fact, we think we know just where we stand - or are discovering it as we speak.
