Haven't seen a single non-moron working as a salesman in retail for a long, long time. If they had any brains, they would have a petter-paying job, right?

Come on, Peevee1, that's pretty rough. In the better camera stores, people behind the counter are often working photographers, or people who have moved on from field work. What they accept for their labor has little to do with their intelligence and more to do with their love of the hardware and the discipline.

Sadly, large appliance/electronic chains have created the niche for morons, regardless of what they are paid. There's no place for unintelligent people in locally-owned businesses; those who do not work hard at learning the trade go out of business every day. Sadly, even those who work hard go out of business, too.
