I am not one to take jabs at companies… wait… WHO AM I KIDDING?!?!?!? I love jabbing companies! Well anyway, as I was saying… Lately companies have really been surprising me with some of their antics. My rants stretch back from AOL to Microsoft and today the latest crazy chicken on the chopping block is Apple, again. This time, they are refusing to sell you an iPad!
It has been reported by ABC News that a disabled woman was turned away from buying an iPad because she wanted to pay in cash!
After saving for some time, a bit here and a bit there, Diane Campbell finally saved enough money to purchase her first computer. The iPad was a perfect fit because of its ease of use and portability. She walked into the store, walked up to the counter, told the clerk she wanted to buy an iPad, whipped out her cash, and was DENIED!
“It took quite a long time for me to just save up this small amount of money to go down and purchase one,” she said. “I had my cash in the backpack and I went up proudly to the counter and told them, ‘I would like to purchase an iPad.'”
She thought the clerk was joking when she was denied, but the Palo Alto Apple Store Clerk was absolutely serious.
