So I went in here to get a replacement battery for my iPhone 5 today, which Apple informed me I had coming. I walked in and was greeted warmly, and I didn't have to wait long. But then someone from the service department informed me that they couldn't replace my battery because it's store policy not to replace batteries for jailbroken phones or phones that have a replacement screen. That's all fine and good, but my phone has never been jailbroken and has never gotten the screen replaced. I told this to the employee, and he informed me that I was lying. This took me aback. I told him that, like most Americans, I haven't let my phone out of my sight in two years, and unless someone drugged me in my sleep specifically to jail break it or to give it a replacement screen -- which strikes me as unlikely? -- neither of those things had ever happened. As I held the hand of my two-year-old, he accused me of lying again. I don't even need a battery that urgently and am getting a new phone next month anyway. But I did not plan on spending my afternoon being repeatedly called a liar in front of my son. So, to sum up: If you go into the PeachMac in Athens, the employees will call you a liar in front of your children. Repeatedly. I wouldn't go back into this store if my Mac were on fire and actively trying to kill me. Best, Will Leitch
