So, Thursday night I bricked my captivate but, good. Froyo 2.2 was officially released for my phone and in the process of going to it my computer shut off and my screen went pink I was quite alarmed and dismayed. The phone would not turn back on at all..no lights/movement/sound. I was out of my 30 days but, my parents are in charge of the contract and I have do everything through them, so we took the phone back to the store I got it from and there was one person ahead of us. After a minute a man walked in and then a few minutes later an older lady. The lady asked if the person behind the counter was the only one working to which I responded "yes mam". Afterwords she proceeded to walk up to the person at the counter and ask the same stupid question, and walked out annoyed. The lady behind the counter then apologized to my mother and I. I replied, "no worries I know how it goes, I've sold phones before." The lady asked "At&t?" To which I responded "I sold at&t, sprint, and tmobile at one store." she asked me if I wanted a job right then and there. I told her I might but, my last job although I love it was annoying because, they were so obsessed with attaches that I lost customers and sales, she told me to go pick up an app from her other store down the road and apply. She then continued working with the customer she was with. A friend of my moms walked in and was discussing getting a phone for her youngest child and I made a few suggestions after I asked a few questions. The lady working at the store then proceeded to talk to me and my mom, where we found out there is a store in town we can take our phone to and get it switched out. She at least two more times mentioned me applying. So after leaving we stopped by her store down the road and picked up the application. The next day my step dad took my old phone to the store and got it swapped out. They gave us a new phone and for some reason we kept the old battery. Apparently the phone AND battery were fried and they are mailing us a new battery now. Hopefully I will receive a call tomorrow on Monday from the new place. I wasn't looking for a job but, I love being a sales person. I hated the crap my last store tried to push with warranties and accessories.. But, I did love legit helping people find a phone and plan that suits them and not just taking them for a ride. It also felt good to have someone actively trying to hire me. I walked in with my hair combed poorly (few places I just can't get it to go down without a shower or something on some days.) I was wearing jeans, crocs and a t-shirt and I would never walk in to apply for a job dressed like that but, there it was someone actively trying to hire me. Usually the job application process revolves around me applying at as many places possible, not the owner of a store insisting I apply there. I also like that the hours are from like 9-6 Monday through Friday then like 10-6 Sat and close Sunday. Even if I got stuck working all day on the days I do work, it will still be better than just about any other places around which open at 6 and close at 9 meaning I'd have to be up early in the morning or get home later at night. So.. kinda funny how I bricked a phone.. and walk away from it with a new phone and (maybe) new job.
