Small computer stores and friendliness?

Hello all,
time to let off some steam.

I've just been to a computer store where I worked this summer. They 
still owed me 100 Euros (which is quite a big sum for a student).

I got 20.

Because "I had to call him earlier". I did. I was there. But he (the 
owner, my boss) wasn't. And the other guys around didn't knew about his 
(!) depth.

Dear ladies and gentlemen, why are those small stores yelling for sales 
losses (and just because of huge stores like MediaMarkt, Saturn, Kosmos 
etc. -  should I laugh?) if they aren't polite enough to treat their own 
staff correctly? They (and I have been to _every_ damn computer shop 
around) are unfriendly, cocky, self-aggrandising idiots. And BTW, they 
can't even spell Linux correctly.

If there's competence and more individual treatment on their banners 
they should practice it and not just cant.

Greetings to all those plagued folks out there,


PS: If anyone reading this knows a good online-store or, even better, 
lives near the lake of constance (Bodensee) and knows a good shop please 
tell me about it :)
