    All I want to see is the stylus

    Mrs Q, the [at][at][at][at], broke my Surface Pro 3 a few months ago, denies it was her, even though she admits to moving it, and she was the only person in the house.

    Anyway.

    14k to get a replacement under warranty.

    This has made me a. not repair it and simply turn off all the touch features and b. look passively for a replacement, given the the machine itself is only 6 months old to me.

    I was at IT City at The Mall Bang Kapi last week and asked about a Dell PC with a stylus, the chickenhead serving me told me it didnt have one, even though the picture on the screen showed one, there was one on the sticker on the palm rest, and there was a hole in the side for one - I pointed this out, and he went to get his mate, who told me there wasn't one either.

    Back in there tonight, decided to try again, possibly the same chickenhead told me that there isn't a stylus, I showed him the photos, the specs etc, he wandered off playing with his phone - after calling him a [at][at][at][at] loudly, and Mrs Q getting upset with me, I set her onto the guy who was stood next to us on his phone

    We want to see the stylus, WHY???, because we want to see the size of it and how it works with this pc.

    Away he goes to ask someone else, still playing with his cunting phone - he speaks to another chickenhead, who goes looking in cupboard scratching his head. He reappears with a stylus, which even fro the 20m metres or so away I can see is far larger than the hole in this pc.

    Chickenhead number 2 proudly brings it to me, puts a battery in and touches it to the screen, nowt happens. I ask him how it fits in the laptop, he, as I had hoped, tries to fit this large stylus into a very small hole, twice!!

    I point out that he thinks this is the wrong one and possibly for the unit over there.

    At this point he wanders off.

    Behind us is a man, doing the books, in my terrible Thai, I ask is he the floor manager for this area, yes he is.

    I introduce the floor manager to my four year old daughter, I explain to her that he is the boss of these people, She knows I'm the boss these days, so does a double check with me - like you are the boss, Daddy? Yes, well done.

    The man at this point is looking pleased with himself, he tries a bit of English with me, it is quite good, I ask if he knows the term - to fire someone, he does, and now looks worried.

    I ask my little girl who the man is, she proudly tells me that he is the boss of these people working here - good girl.

    I tell her, nice and loudly, and with the manager present - that if he was my manager, I would fire him, and the staff from this area - his face is a picture, even better when Little Q looks at him and days - My daddy would fire you.

    Spineless twat - couldn't even be bothered to step in for a sale.

    I get that they only want to sell tvs to people because it takes no effort, I know their pay is shit, but ffs it could be a 30s sale with me, show me it works, I take it. Easy.

    Saying that, I bought my mum a phone there two weeks ago - 30 minutes to buy a fucking phone - 30 fucking minutes. Why does it take so long to open a box, check it is there, give me the phone, take my cash and go.

    Culture shock, seems to roll around every few years. No sausages were involved.

    ^ I prefer online shopping Begbie, interacting with morons in real life just doesn't work anymore.

    All I want to see is how the stylus works with the pc, that is it. If it is similar to my SP3 I would buy it there and then.

    Culture shock - does it wear off and come back when you least expect it?

    Gotta be more mentally flexible, squirrel-dude. As soon as you see they're incompetent twats, just move on. Staying there is just like bashing your head against an immovable object. Ultimately it only damages you.

    BTW, you aren't related to MissisMiggins, are you ?

    Reminds me of when I went to a m/c shop to buy a top box. I told the old guy I wanted one big enough to be able to keep my helmet in.
    He went to the back of the shop and re-appeared with something that I could see was too small and told him so. But he still had to place the box on the counter and tried to fit my helmet inside. He turned the helmet this way and that way and other ways but obviously couldn't get it to fit inside. Just like a little kid determined to put a square peg in a round hole.

    That's Phuketbound . . . Willy had a hard-on for her for years under her various nomes-de-guerre -simply loved the woman.

    Admittedly this Canadian nymph teacher was a catch - hence the fascination by William

    Guilty as charged. She was also very humble and polite.

    Some people sure have a strange way of showing their love.
    Harrassing and getting people run off a forum is one of those strange ways I guess.

    Strange, innit.

    I find it all quite hilarious. Observing Thais try to carry out the most mundane of tasks is simply a comedy show befit of Monty Python.
