Yeh, I sort of have the same feeling. Hope he felt good putting down a kid making minimum wage trying to get by. Amazing how some people are born with all this knowledge and were never naive kids trying to make a go at it.
He said that the kid was happy he stepped in to help... so what's your issue?

So you actually go into Best Buy to get information on anything? Yeh...let's hear another one.
I mean, I like for them to have some resemblance of knowledge, yes. If I go in asking for a UHS-1 card I'd appreciate not getting a blank stare (as I did when I did that very thing). I'd also appreciate an employee who didn't try telling me that "Nothing beats a Sony a7R for mirrorless" after I had already stated that I owned one and didn't like it , but at least that guy knew something about the products he was selling.

Duck has explained that he felt good helping the customers who weren't getting the information they needed. Presumably the kid got the commission on the sale, which he wouldn't have got if the customers had given up and left without buying. In that way, Duck also helped the kid. Why be so ready to attribute bad motives to someone you don't know?

I don't care what Duck's intentions were...his gloating about it on this forum tells me all.
So... did you not read the thread title, or...?

Ducky...here is your first post in this thread:
"I love pretending I know nothing about cameras whenever I am in one of these big box stores (like Best Buy). I'll purposely ask more advanced questions just to test the poor fools."
You can back track all you want...but your colours were shown with your first post.
You get your kicks feeling superior to the kids working minimum wages at Best Buy?
I worked several minimum wage (or just above it) jobs when I was a teenager, I excelled in all of them and guess what, started earning more than minimum wage because I cared about what I did, I learned about the things I was selling even if they didn't interest me... because that was my job.
Anwyay, back to the topic on hand and further appologies to the TS, but this kind of blind SJW stuff boils my blood.
I've overheard way more ridiculous things in regards to TV salesman than Cameras at my local stores thankfully, usually I just get the occasional guy who tries to talk me into switching back into a DSLR system, or to get a full frame camera (been there, done that), but I give kudos to those guys for at least knowing something about the stuff they're selling.
