Radioshack

For the last 30 years this is the same conversation I've had 100 times.

Me- Hi how are you? Do you have one of these?

RadioShack Bill - Let me check,,,,,,,,,,Hey Jeff do we have a blankity blank? No we don't

Bill- Sir we don't carry that.

Me- Ok thank you.





Hopefully you have better luck there

Re: Radioshack

That's funny!
Went in to local radio shack last week looking for common SD cards and got the same thing.

We're all here because we're not all there!!

Re: Radioshack

Once I went into radio shack and asked for a radio.

Same reaction.

Re: Radioshack

I loved Radio Shack in the 70,s.Bought C.B.,s and ground plane antenna there.I still have my 5/8 wave ground plane from the 70,s.Loved goin there as a kid a getting the crystal radio kits then movin up to the big 65 in 1 electronic kit.Bought the first programmable scanner there and the antenna and the rotor on the roof now came from there about a dozen years ago.I hated what they turned into some years ago.Remember when they had a tube tester right on the counter?

Sears is better they have at least 3 well dressed people telling
