Things that are Just Wrong

Fair warning - I'm about to show my age here.

Clerks at Radio Shack are not supposed to be cute/handsome.  That is Just Wrong.  It's *supposed* to be that I shouldn't be able to get any service in a Radio Shack, because the clerk (singular) working there is completely socially inept and at best won't talk to girls, at worst is actively afraid of them.

That is how it's supposed to be.  The clerk at a Radio Shack is supposed to be a socially underdeveloped geek who is incapable of dealing with females and who is working there because a) he can get a discount and b) so that he can spend his day talking electronic geekery with other social misfits.

Of course, the store *itself* is supposed to be little alcoves of blister packaged components, where in order to find your button batteries you have to search among the resistors and capacitors and such.  Back when people actually knew how to build thing.  Back when you could walk into Radio Shack and buy all the components to build a radio, damn it.

I don't even know where I would go to buy a resistor any longer.
