Is it me.....
Anyway, when I'm wandering around I really want to be left alone. I hate it if the people working there come up and ask if I need any help. No thank you. And then if they don't take the hint and want to engage me in conversaation. NO. LEAVE ME ALONE I shout (in my head, hahaha, I never actually say anything, I'm so polite it's not funny).
And then if they insist on showing me books... like they know my taste.... I don't think so...... I leave - really disgruntled at my pleasurable experience being cut short.
I seriously believe there should be 'Leave The Customer Alone, Unless They Ask for Help' training for all book store workers (actually that would work for fashion stores too).
What about you? Do you want to be left alone when you're in a book store?
I bet you're all going to tell me that it's my problem......
When we meet, Sara, I may just make an exception for you and give you a hug. It's bound to freak us both out.
Next time we meet I'll give you a hug also. Last time we were too polite to do more than nod and smile. hahhahaa. That's funny too!
Alyssa - see you in 2008 at RWA SF
Christina see you next year in NZ!!!!!
And Amanda, yes I agree, when I have a question they better be up close and personal (let's make that personable, hahahha) pdq!!!!
Hey, do you think I'm one of those 'customers we love to hate'???
