good personal hygenine is important, but......

A few months ago, my tv suddenly died. So on the spur of the moment, we went to Sears for some tv shopping.

There were 5-6 sales people between home appliances and the electronics department, and since it was a sales weekend, they were all fairly busy.

We looked around for a bit, we found a good tv at a reasonable price, and looked for a free sales associate.

I found one, who was looking around with a glazed, bored look on his face. I approached him. When I got to about 2 feet in front of him (and he is looking right at me) he turns his back to me.

Okaaaaayyy. I have worked retail for 13 years, I know a deliberate avoidance when I see one.

So I hunt down another sales associate. She happened to be assigned to home appliances that day, and offers to take me to a free associate in home electronics.

We look over, and I realize that she means to take me to the guy I just tried to approach.

So I turn to her and say: "Well, I know that you work on commission, and I would really like the commission to go to someone who doesn't ignore me and is not clipping his fingernails on the sales floor!

She was about as appalled as I was.
