Today I went to buy two big SATA hard drives, to be used with an external USB container I bought at the same time.
I'm not sure how much abuse desktop hard drives are supposed the stand these days, but the stupid (lady) clerk practically slammed my hard drives quite hard to the hard stone desk. WTF?
I haven't used them yet and I presume they still work, but I really should have just told her to get two new pieces, I don't want to pay for mishandled electronics. They were not in any cardboard boxes, just in those small antistatic bags. Stupid me, but I guess I thought I'll know quite soon if they still work.
Maybe I am all wrong and non-running desktop hard drives don't care even if you thrown them at a concrete wall, but I still would have preferred that the clerk handles electronics that I'm just about to buy more carefully. After all, that's one of the main reasons I went on site to fetch them myself (and not through mail), to handle them with care.
I'm so pissed off that I'm probably going to kill some NPCs in Baldur's Gate later today, even if my reputation goes down.
