  3. I work at best buy and that sounds like a usual trip around for someone. it's hard though because as sales people not all of them know what they're talking about, best buy tries their best to find people who know what they're talking about but it's hard to find people like that. I know plenty about computer but they put me on phones instead of selling and talking about computers. and it's hard to know exactly what we have in stock occasionally as well. of course I still love my job, though, better than working at my previous job at McDonald's

  4. CAN$900 or US$625!!????? When. The. F#!*. Did. That. Happen. When I was living in Canada like a 5 years ago Canadian dollar was still HIGHER than US Dollars.
