"To hire or not? Holiday dilemma for U.S. retailers"

Some advice to Best Buy....don't hire. The place is already overrun with annoying eager salespeople ready to tell me they are not commissioned. The more effort I place in not looking like I need help, the more they hunt me down. Maybe I look suspicious trying to duck them. If, by chance, I have a question, it's way over their level of expertise. Maybe they can issue shoppers like myself a "Don't Bother Me, I Know You're Not Commissioned" badge at the front door.

I can go to CompUSA right down from Best Buy. Again rampant with sales people, but you have to hit them with a brick to get kind of service.

When sales pick up for the holidays, put Best Buy sales people, already on the today's payroll, on the registers.
