  • How Much Crazy Hijinx Can You Get Away With at The Apple Store?


    Apple employees are usually pretty relaxed when it comes to what they consider acceptable behavior in their stores. Over the last few years, however, some customers have upped the ante with crazy antics that would ordinarily get them thrown out of other retail stores.

    It’s not too surprising that some people really enjoy showing off in the Apple Store. After all, the stores are well lit and customers can freely access computers equipped with cameras, video editing software and access to the internet. When you put all of these things together, something interesting is bound to happen sooner or later.

    So Mark Malkoff of My Damn Channel decided to ask the question, “Is there a limit to what the Apple Store will allow?” The results may surprise you. Mark set off to see just how many crazy antics the Apple Store would let him get away with before asking him to leave. The short answer is quite a bit actually. So he set himself a series of four challenges designed to test Apple’s resolve.

    First, Mark decided to see if he could get a Pizza delivered to the SoHo Store in New York City. After waiting for 30 minutes, a pizza deliveryman showed up with his order. A nearby employee watching him pay for his pizza merely says, “That’s awesome.” No one even noticed when started eating it right there in the store.



    Next up, “Will they allow me to have a romantic date with my extremely tall wife?”
    Yes, but unfortunately, store employees wouldn’t turn down the lights for their romantic evening out.



    For the next challenge, “Could I get an Apple Store employee to help fix my broken iPhone while dressed as the most evil man in the universe?” The answer? Yes, but their initial advice was that he should simply “Use the force.” It would also seem that Darth used to be a Hotmail user, but recently switched to Gmail instead. You wouldn’t usually expect Darth to be a big hugger, but apparently he is now. So yes, you can go to the Apple Store dressed as your favorite Star Wars character as long as you’re willing to give out a few hugs along the way. Oh, and they did help him fix his iPhone.



    “And finally, we all know the Apple Store will allow a dog, but how about a goat?” It would seem that goats are a go as long as you take them to the Broadway and 67th Street store. This particular goat seemed to be more of a Mac goat than a PC goat and apparently he enjoyed the Apple Store so much that he didn’t want to leave. Mark finally had to carry him out.

    So there you have it. Apple Store employees will let you get away with just about anything in the store. But if you try to return something, I doubt they’ll be as forgiving.

      passing out jailbreaking guides in the store .. apparently not acceptable and got in a fight with fatass big tits lady tht said she owned the store . yeh . shove it

      So stupid what did you expect... As for jailbreak me.com its dumb idiots that go into apple stores and best buys and jailbreak their devices like retards... Maybe the devs should make the jailbreak like the ones from 2.0 and stuff.. Where your practically scripting your phone for a simple jailbreak and a arm and leg for the unlock now it's easy and stupid ppl say things like that.

      Of course it always a noob or some idiot to ruins the fun for all.

      My dad asked me last year to buy him a case for his new iPhone 4 so I went to Apple Store and began taking pictures of different cases so I can send them through MMS and my dad can choose one. A security guard approached me and told me that if I take another picture, he'll ask me to leave the premises. This was in Emeryville, CA.... Apple Store in Bay St.

      Yeah I was gonna say, this video seems to show how laid back New York Apple stores are. Crazy **** happens in New York all the time. I don't think one could get away with much at Apple stores in other states.

      Wanted to see a film at the cinema but the queue was out the door, no queue for the credit-card booked tickets though...
      walked down the mall to the Apple store, logged on to the cinemas website and booked the tickets online,
      walked back to the cinema, (the queue had hardly moved) and collected my tickets from the pre-booked ticket machine and went straight in. Felt pretty awesome

      If he's not, neither are you, or any of us. The sites rules say "No profanity" and that's that. Dosent matter what you want.

      It seems like grade school when your not mature enough to express yourself without profanity. Yeah that's from the sites rules, and partly me.

      Hey don't be hating, he's just pointing out a rule. "No profanity and No "Rated-R" and I'm pretty sure that sentence broke both lol...

      My observations:
      Some users want and/or need profanity on MMi.
      Some users do not want and/or do not need profanity on MMi.
      Some don't need, but don't particularly care either way.

      Unfortunately for those who need or want profanity, the site admins either do not need or do not want it, or both. The forum has been configured to enforce this, no morality required. The moderators have been configured to enforce those few cases where dung falls through the cracks. They are not moral either, just doing their job.

      Surely you can provide the location of that rule? I mean, you wouldn't quote something that doesn't exist, right?

      If it is their job, then let THEM do it. Since none of them has come along and removed that post, apparently it's not in violation of some rules that are near impossible to find - you have to know exactly where to look to find them.
