Either the poster was trying to be funny...Or we just witnessed the brilliance of the average BB/Geek Squad employee. I run a small local computer shop, and I have to deal with these peoples' eff-ups every day! Sad.

I hope that they continue to hire people of that quality. Much like your case, fixing their screw ups keeps the lights on and food on the table.

Last year, I sent them a christmas card thanking them for their lack of knowledge and dedication to killing everything they touch.
