So, I had to buy a new keyboard. Apparently, I'm rather keyboard abusive and I have to replace mine every so often. The one I just destroyed has been around for a year or so. My keyboards are not cheap, since I have to have the ergonomic boards for work -- otherwise instead of my arms just feeling like they are going to fall off after an 8 hour shift, they actually DO fall off *nods*
The screen then beeped at me and said that an associate had been contacted and would be with me shortly. So, we waited.
And someone came out of the break room, looked at us, and kept walking.
And Pookie "touched there" and we waited some more for the elusive associate who was on the way.
And someone else came out of the break room, kept they eyes down, and moved along at a brisk pace.
And this happened about 5 more times.
Finally, I grabbed a little man coming out of the break room and handed him my receipt and he handed it back to me and asked if I'd touched the screen. I told him I had ... twice. So he touched it and walked away.
We waited some more and the little man came back. He touched the screen again and said, "I touch, they come." I'm pretty sure he works at the Chinese place too, he sounded like the one that tells me "We no derivah dere, is too fah."
I said, "No, they don't come. Nobody comes." And then touched the screen again.
Finally, many days and grays later (translation: about 30 minutes), a lady with a big rolling mop bucket came back there and assisted us. I guess they were running short on cashiers and were having the janitorial staff take care of customers... which would explain why on the busiest day of the week they only had 1 register open on the north side of the store with a line about 30 deep.
Anyway, I got my keyboard and we got out. I will NOT be using Site to Store again for something small. The money I saved on shipping was not worth having to sit there forever waiting for someone to deign to assist use. Unlike the money I could have saved with Geico, which follows me around looking cute ... the money I saved with Walmart got tired of waiting for me to be done at the counter and left.
The keyboard is pretty nice, with the exception of the stiff spacebar ... but I figure a few days of me beating on it should loosen it right up ;)
In other news, my red-headed Pookie decided she didn't want to be a redhead anymore.
