So... i've decided that i might get more done if i start to communicate through cartooning.... if nothing else, i'll get more practice... anyway, my first cartoon here at dangharris, is about a trip to best buy that tom and i recently took... it voices my frustration concerning best buy's newest customer service policy... you see, my friend frank, who works at the BB in Brighton, informed me that, in a meeting, he was told that all employees were to attempt to become friends with every customer who walks through the door... and if they didn't do this, they could walk through the door themselves, leaving there happy blue shirts at it.
So now when you go into best buy, it is nearly impossible to avoid talking to the employees about whatever crap they think they can interest you, their newest best bud, in. i mean, sometimes i just want to go in and look around, but i can't do that anymore (at least not enjoyably), because every 30 seconds, there's someone asking me questions:
them: Find everything you're looking for?
me: i'm just browsing... thanks tho...
them: Well, ok... that's cool then.... if you need help just holler at me... i'll be around... and if you can't find me, just look around for anybody else... we're all here to help you... i want to help you... i need to help you.... it would give me no greater pleasure than to help you... you are my main man, right? right? eh? eh?
me: ok...
them: yeah, buddy!!! give me some skin!! awright!! wooooohoooo!!! YEAH!!
me: ok, then....
30 seconds later
them: still lookin?
me: that's right
30 seconds later
them: need any help?
me: nope
30 seconds later
them: how about now?
me: no
30 seconds later
them: now?
me: NO.
30 seconds later
them: NOW?
me: NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!
and this continues for the rest of the time i'm in there.
maybe later i'll post the "comment" i left at bestbuy.com after filling out a survey

anyway....

This is our story...




(note: if someone knows, can you tell me how to turn these into thumbnails? i tried several different things, but since i'm no good with html, i didn't really get anywhere.... Ben? Tom? maybe give me a call or e-mail, eh?... once someone fills me in, i'll edit this to thumbnails and my page won't look so sloppy)

Peace,
Dan

You do know that I'm brown, right? what is it about the coloring of my skin that bothers you?
don't worry about it... mistakes like the one you made are directly responsible for me being known as "wetback" in high school.

Hey Wetback -

I'm printed that comic strip, and I am going to show if to a few people at work if that's ok with you.
