CompUSA Definitely Not Staffed By Robots

Golly, artificial intelligence just keeps getting smarter and smarter, as reader Matt’s conversation today with CompUSA shows.

    “Andrew : Although you can’t use a gift card for delivery, you can reserve items on-line with one of your credit cards for store pick up. When you get to the store, switch payment to the gift card. Your credit card will not be charged.
    Andrew : Sorry about the pause
    Andrew : Network hiccupped
    Customer: no problem, are you a robot?
    Andrew : Not today, today I’m an airplane
    Andrew : Tomorrow I’ll be a fireman
    Andrew : >;)”

Aw, that’s really cute Andrew. We have no idea why CompUSA online was voted 3rd worst in holiday shopper satisfaction.

Maybe next you can transmogrify into a website that doesn’t suck. — BEN POPKEN

  1. I was a robot yesterday.

    It’s overrated.

    I kept freezing up in the snow.

    That’s greater when I asked AIM’s SmarterChild Austin Powers promo whether he’d “like a shag, baby.”, and Austin declined, saying that “that isn’t very nice.”
