This is why you don't take your Lamborghini to Best Buy

Last week we showed you a photo of Lamborghini Murcielago being serviced at Best Buy and opined about why it was a bad idea. Now we’ve found the Facebook page from one of the techs who worked on the Lambo — and it makes an even better argument.[jump]


When you take your vehicle to a higher end shop you assume your vehicle’s being worked on by adult (read, older than 17) professionals who will not take pics of your vehicle and post them to Facebook to show it being worked on at Best Buy.

It’s also possible, though not guaranteed, that the person who works on your $350K exotic car won’t describe their job as “fucking shit up” and won’t list one of their favorite quotes as “I haven’t failed 1000 times, i’ve just found 1000 ways that don’t work.”

All of this is fairly predictable behavior from a high school student. This young Geek has a job, is going to school, and isn’t doing anything really unethical. We absolutely expect this kid does a fine job of installing speakers in a Honda Civic.

But a Lamborghini?

Well, you get what you pay for.

UPDATE: The Best Buy worker pictured, who is a salesman in the media section, says the owner of the car gave him permission to take the photo and use it on Facebook.




Do I have to be the one to defend this kid? I don't see anything wrong with what he did. At all. As far as I can tell, he didn't do anything wrong, aside from being part of a younger generation than the editors.

I'll say this right now: I'm out of college and most people who know me would consider me an adult on multiple levels, but if I were presented with a chance to interact, on any level, with a Lamborghini, the very first thing I would do is take pictures. Why? Because I have never in my life seen a Lamborghini in person, much less had the opportunity to touch one. I don't know about you, but I would definitely take the initiative and document that particular event. So what if he took a picture of himself with an exotic car? Did he give out the owner's personal information? Can you read the license plate? Is he fellating the tailpipe and giving the camera the Shocker?

No. He took a picture of himself standing in front of a car he probably will never have to chance to see or touch again.

So what if he's in high school and has the no-he-didn't wherewithal to say a, *gasp*, swear word? And as for the quote? Just be happy he has the education and understanding to use a quote from Thomas Edison. Or would you rather he use a quote from Lil' Wayne?

As far as I care, this kid is accomplishing far more than I did in high school. He seems to have his head screwed on straighter than most 40 year olds I know and as far as I'm concerned, he can work on my car stereo any day, Lambo or not. After all, that's his job. If he was crappy at it, I doubt he'd still be doing it.
