Never talk to the sales clerk

Its almost cliché, but I have to post about my experience at Circuit City tonight.
I stopped by Circuit City to pick up an external hard drive that I purchased at their website. Before picking up my item, I did some window shopping in the store. Of course I didn’t make it down one isle before I was asked by a sales associate if I needed anything. Giving him too much credit, I asked if they carried any tablets. Since I was standing next to the laptops, I figured the context was rather obvious. But he asks if I meant the sales circular. At that point I explain that I mean a tablet pc. He still really doesn’t know. Since I had looked at what was on display and no tablets were available so I got the heck out of there.
