In fairness many companies have the policy where staff have to approach as many customers as possible. I've seen it from both sides where I'm approached and I'm made to approach, it makes you realise that they aren't just doing it to be annoying.
yeah true. they're just doing what they've been told but god man it's annoying. phone shops are the worst because they're all after some commission, so you get pounced on the second you walk through the door.
I was just in Sainsbury's and noticed a pack of chewing gum in one location marked at £2.35, and in another for £2.05... ended up not getting any at all! (it was £1.49 a few months ago! Silly inflation!)
Something that I really dislike is when you are being served at the till, and their mate from the other comes over for a chat, and they stand and chat for ages, ignoring you, and they end up being really slow with scanning things ect! I find it pretty rude, have a chat on your next break, not when you are supposed to be doing your job, I have better things to do than wait around for you to finish your chat!
Having the security guard at Tesco accuse you and your friend of stealing sandwiches, and then asking for a receipt as proof of purchase, proceeding to then check that your bag doesn't have anything other than what is on the receipt. This is why although M&S is more expensive, the staff there are always much nicer and more helpful, so I prefer to go there.
1. When you're looking at something, then someone else comes and stands and looks at you until you move so they can have a look. I mean really...I don't want to be pressured to move just because someone else wants to look at the same thing!
2. People who are just plain ignorant. If you're looking at something and they just barge past you without so much as an "excuse me", manners cost nothing.
3. People who congregate in the most inconvenient places for a chat e.g Middle of aisles, in front of tills and generally anywhere that makes any kind of shopping that wee bit more difficult.
Shopping in Dubai. Supermarket is ok but anything else, you can't so much as walk into a store without a sales assistant following you round the whole store when you just want to browse freely and look at the items and compare by yourself. I often get approached in Russian just because I'm oh so white and even when I reply in English that I'm just looking, I will be followed round the store so closely that I can even feel their breath on my skin, whilst they try to sell me every item in there. Even in Boots, when I have a basket in my hand and put an item into the basket, sales assistants will continue trying to sell that product to me... I hate shopping in Dubai :-(
