I hate snooty sales people.
The people who look at you and decide that you are not worthy of their attention. The ones who think that because you need a good hair cut you aren't going to spend any money.
Yesterday I went into a shop to buy a laptop for the kids. I had done my research and knew the one I wanted, and this store had it.
I went in and looked at the machine. Yep, a steal at this price.
A sales woman was busy with a middle aged couple, keen to get the sale. She was like a leech. Even when they made it clear that they wanted to be left to think about things she was still in there, blatantly ignoring my existance.
The leech was still attached to her victims.
The leech continued to press for the sale.
Suddenly I saw a young sales guy across the shop. He looked totally clueless, having trouble summoning the enthusiasm for breathing, never mind a hard sell.
I marched across the shop.
"Hi, I want to buy a laptop."
He reluctantly followed me across the shop.
"I want this one."
As I said it, I watched the leech flinch and finally acknowledge my existence - TOO LATE! HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!
"Do you want anything else to go with it?"
"Nope, just as it comes thanks."
Yep, I gave the gormless teenager the easiest sale possible - I wonder if the leech ever did get her sale?
