Don't you hate it when they do that? I hate it especially after you've taken something from the rack and then put it back, they'll immediately try to rearrange it back even though you've put it back at EXACTLY the same spot and the same arrangement as it was before.
And some of them will follow you around without even saying anything. They just follow and watch you as if you're gonna stick that yoga mat up your pants and run away with it. Sheesh. Have some courtesy and let your customers shop in peace. We will ask for assistance when we feel the need to, dammit.
Back to my story kan, so this boy followed me.
I told him that I was just looking around.
He nodded, smiled and backed off. For 10 seconds. Then he was right back breathing down my neck.
So what the heck, he might just be a good salesperson, I thought.
" Erm, seluar ni takde pocket ke?" I said.
" Eh, mana ada poket. Ini seluar sukan, kak. Bukan seluar jalan-jalan,"
Ooooooooooo, yee keeee? Aku ingat guni tadi.
" Memang la seluar sukan, tapi bila saya lari, saya nak poket untuk boh kunci"
" Mana ada orang lari pakai kunci, kak"
Oooooo, yeee keeee? Abis bukak kereta dengan batu bata tepi jalan kot.
I sighed loudly. And went to take a look at the new line of running shoes.
" Is this the newest one out?"
"Itu kasut larian kak. Mahal. Kak try ni lagi cantik" Pushing a pair of hot pink aerobic trainers in my face.
But not all of them are like this.
My best shopping experience was at a Brook's outlet at The Curve. The girl let us do all the looking around as long as we liked and she just sat there doing her inventory / accounts or whatever it was she was doing and only went to us when we called her. And she was especially friendly and nice and kinda know her sporting goods stuff.
They all should be like this. Respect your customer's privacy. Get to know the stuff you're pitching a sale for. If you work at a sporting goods store, then know your sports, know your products. Jangan hafal je skrip pastu bila kita tanya soalan advanced sket dah terkebil-kebil.
There was this other person at another store, when I asked her the price of some energy gels,she quickly took the gels from my hands
" Ini ambil untuk lari punya, bukan macam gula-gula untuk makan saja-saja."
Ooooooooo, yeeee keee? Aku ingat ubat gigi.
