Geek Squad Tries To Fix Computer With Glue Gun

An anonymous tipster has a complaint against Best Buy’s Geek Squad, which wouldn’t be abnormal except for the fact that the complainer is also a Geek Squad agent. The tipster sent a computer floor model to a Geek Squad service center for repair, and as you can see from the picture, the service tech’s attempt at gluing the keyboard down didn’t work out so well.

From the tipster:

We recently had a store display model laptop go “kaput” and needed to be sent to our service center (Geek Squad City). We follow standard procedure in doing this and received the laptop back several days later. From reading an older article, I couldn’t help but chuckle at the thought of such a facility as Geek Squad City using a hot glue gun to perform certain repairs. Well, that’s just what they did on this particular laptop!

Silly Geek Squad, forgetting to use duct tape.
