    ... and not know what an SD card reader is?

    i'm so fucking mad right now.

    the first card reader i bought sucked ass and i had to return it to the store i got it at because it was a POS that didn't work well with my iMac.

    okay, fine.

    so then i drove to DE to see if the apple store had one. the greeter asked me, "what can we help you with?" to which i replied, "do you guys by any chance sell SD card readers? i know of only a few companies make them, but wasn't sure if apple had one as well." to which he replied, "a credit card?" to which i replied, "no, an SD card reader."

    so then mr. greeter asks for another sales associate to come assist us. i explain to him what i need again. this time i'm more specific. "i need an SD card reader. you know, USB compatible so i can plug it into my imac and get stuff on and off of my SD card."

    the guy hesitates and goes, "oh, yeah, okay. a camera connection kit."

    he walks me over to the accessory wall and confidently pulls out this little box. i quickly glance at it and go, "you sure this is it? it doesn't look like it... and it says ipad."

    "oh, yeah, that's it. it reads the SD card."

    "umm, okay," and i fork over $29.

    i get home and as soon as i open the box i realize the stupid thing is not going to work. it's nowhere even close to working. i ask my b/f for his ipad and try to salvage the last bit of patience i have and see if i can still use it on there. nope. his ipad is one of the first generation ipads and doesn't even have the SD slot hookup because it's not even equipped with a camera.

    now i have to drive back, pay toll again, and tell them i fucking hate apple ever since steve jobs died.

    yes, it is partly my fault because i should have not trusted that idiot at the store so much and checked it out myself. the stupidity of people today has me on ultra paranoia alert with about everything i do from counting my change and checking my receipt at stores to opening boxes before i leave the store to make sure everything's in there that should be and in working order. why i didn't do it this time, i don't know. probably the same reason why i'm so angry right now-- because i'm tired and had a long day.

    anyway... that's my rant. and fuck you in advance to all the "TL;DR" replies. :c

    Apple employees are as dumb as their customers.
