Short rant -- I just went to Microcenter to pick up a motherboard and CPU combo for a Z270 ITX build I'm doing. I had a gift card to burn, so I figured I'd go spend it. I picked out an i7 7700K + Asus ROG STRIX Z270I.. along with some RAM and a M.2 NVMe drive. I get up to the register and I'm ready to pay, and the cashier just takes the motherboard out of the box, takes it out of the anti-static bag, takes off the pin protector, then runs his fingers over the LGA pins. I said "uhhh, what are you doing?" And he says it is their policy to check for bent pins on the motherboard. Then I say "Without an anti-static wrist strap, setting the motherboard down on a plastic shopping bag, wearing a polyester shirt, while rubbing your fingers on the pins?".. so I proceeded to tell him I'm leaving while he stood there with a dumbfounded look on his face. So I went home and just purchased everything on Amazon and Newegg, since it probably has a lower chance at being ESD molested before I receive it. Has anyone else experienced this retarded policy at Microcenter?
