March 18th

Another morning commute, though I missed a major accident by 15 minutes. Eek

Cache today was down an old dirt road that reminded me of an aged railbed. Followed it after logging the cache until I came to two spots where a birdge was needed and not there. Hurm

After work, unpacked a bit more and headed home to grab Dad then off to Reno for the REI sale. Picked up a pair of Black Diamond poles (tired of killing the Wal-Mart versions) as well as a pump for the bike and gloves for the kayak.

Then to Best Buy where I was flat out lied to THREE TIMES!

1) "Yeah, this cable will transfer pics and stuff." Box: This cable is not designed for data transfer.

2) "This one only prints. The copy button is fake, its the generic faceplate they make. See, its the same on all three models." Box: Print, Scan, Copy, and Fax

3) "The two ink cartridges are cheap so you don't spend a lot on ink." Box: 4 ink cartridges (Replace only what you need!) that average $28.

Attention store employees: It's OK to admit you don't know something, just find the correct answer! Arghh!

Was so irritated at that point that I just wanted to go home. We had a decent snow storm last night, it was low and slow all through Washoe. Came home and packed up the last bits of stuff. Today should do it... I am so tired of not being able to do anything besides drive and work.
