I went to best buy to have my iPod talk to and down load my music from my computer.I should take less that 5 minutes to do.

I was told by a blue shirt I must come back in two hours and I said why you can do it. he said only geeks can. Asked to see a manager and 5 blue shirts all said the could not help come back in two hours. one of uyou guys can help, right?
