Peeves: Retail January 18, 2007Posted by WishBoNe in Just For Fun, Random Thoughts.
Ronalfy has a Peeve Week contest going on. Since it’s Thursday, I shall do the topic on retail. I do shopping, so does everyone, right? You’ve met different kind of sales people and there are those who make your day and some who don’t. I love to shop, window-shopping, I mean. Just look at those pretty trinkets! I simply adore looking at them, whole day maybe? That said, I most certainly have a list of pet peeves on retail. The list is in random order. So I’ll pick three that top my list for easy reading.
Hovering within 1 metre while I’m browsing
Boy, do I hate this. Please, it makes me feel that my privacy is invaded. I can’t breathe or make a decision if you hover around me. Yes I know you don’t have to navigate the aisles if I call for assistance but it’s too close for my browsing comfort. Introduction to the product about its good points to me is fine but I’ll ask for it, thank you very much.
Saying sorry, this is the last piece
I simply hate it when I’m really keen on buying and there’s no new piece for me to buy. Clothes are the worst, they are usually tried on many, many, many times and some of the seams have just loosen! Don’t tell me to check if it’s ok because it ain’t ok! I don’t want to sew the seams! I don’t mind sewing the buttons but not the seams. Understand?
Putting the change on the counter
I feel as if I have some contagious illness that the money must be on the counter instead of my outstretched hand. The worst change to pick is coins. The next worst change is too many coins. No wonder I’m using my Nets instead of cold hard cash most of the time, I don’t have to fumble for coins while paying and keeping the change.
