    Wink Shopping annoyances??

    This thread is for us to vent on what annoys us when shopping as a customer, or if you're on the other side as the employee.


    Vent away!!

    OK, as a customer:
    • When people walk in front of you or just get in your way DON'T say "excuse me". OMG, this is sooo rude!! One time, I was at the Coach Outlet (VERY busy), people would not say excuse me, even if their damn purse hit me!!
    • People who let their kids run WILD!



    As an employee:
    • When people come into the store literally 2 minutes before closing. Hello, we have to actually CLOSE the store!!! Do you think we want to stay waaay later than we have to because you can't come in earlier?! NO!
    • When people are just downright rude when there isn't something in stock. They like think it's MY fault we don't have it. Sorry, I'm just the sales person. It's not like I made sure it was sold out since you were coming in!
    • One time, this customer actually waved their card in my face when I asked if I could see it!! WTF!
    • I hate that people don't think I don't know anything about games, electronics, or our policies since I'm female!
    • PLEASE don't be on your cell phone when we're in the middle of the sale!!
    • And for all you random kids that come in just to use our internet on the computer, go to the library!! I am not even kidding, there's this one teenager who comes in, uses a laptop just to send a ringtone to his phone or use his MySpace.



    ...I'm sure there's more I'll post later, but that's it for now!

    As a customer:

    The most annoying thing to me is when I want to enter a store and it's so crowded at the door and there's someone behind me tries to push me with the fingers to enter in a rude way 'that's so bad and their fingers actually hurt my back'

    Something that annoys me is when I'm looking at clothes, and I'm going around the rack in a pattern, and someone comes over to the rack and starts coming towards me while looking at the clothes. I was there first, go the other way! (think about this as a clockwise thing)

    Bad hygiene.. when they get their white deodorant all over the clothes or if they forget to wear deodorant. gross! Or crowded sale floors. (^ same way alex) Like if a place has circular racks and if I'm half way around and someone wedges themself in within an arm reach, then there's that awkward... are you going to move... I'm not moving.. Oh I'm going to look at this ugly shirt somemore until you move. lol.

    Oh and on the otherside.. when rude customers are mean and yell at the associate. Just because you're having a bad day doesn't mean you should snap at people who are helping you (especially if they work in a toy department *cry*).

    Oh and has this ever happened to anyone. I was at Nordstrom's today looking at all the pretty holiday dresses, when one caught my eye. But this lady was holding it, just staring at it, flopping it around, looking at the detail, what the heck I have no idea what she was doing, but she was analyzing the dress for at least 5 minutes. In the meantime, I was just staring out of the corner of my eye, getting ready to pounce if she put it down. She went up to one of the employees and I overheard her asking if they had a different size.. they said no, looks like the dress is only left in that size. Then she went and put the dress back, so I made my way over there and snatched it up. Turn my back and there she was.. said she "oh I was actually going to try that on". Wtf? In all that time she was staring down the dress and talking to the SA she could have tried it on. She had her chance. I politely said "Me too.. it will only take me a second". I didn't end up getting the dress. lol

    I've never had that happen! I would have done the same thing....if she put it down, it's fair game! Plus, if it was too small she could have ripped it or something while trying it on!

    ^^^ LOL! I know all about girls that are "confused" about what their dress size is. You should see all the dresses we have to send out because someone ripped the zipper out trying to squeeze in to it.

    Okay, I've got two just from my little shopping trip today.

    1. There was this big display of Christmas candy/gourmet food on a table. I was looking at some packaged cookies and candies sitting inside this basket. Two ladies walked up and starting looking at stuff as well. The one lady reaches right in front of me to grab this heavy box of jellies/jams and doesn't even say "excuse me". She looks at it and then plops the heavy box down on the cookies/candies I was looking at and smashes them all. Mind you, my hand had barely left the basket!

    2. I had several things that needed to be sent out to different places. They all have to be rung up separately. An elderly lady comes up behind me after the cashier had rung up a couple of the sales. I said she could go ahead and help the elderly lady since she only had 2 things, I could fill out the shipping forms. So she rang up the lady and then the lady left without even saying "thank you". Jeez... I was being nice, she could have at least acted like it.

    I used to work for JcPenney so I can totally relate about larger women trying to squeeze themselves into smaller sizes. I know clothes run differently, but you should know your dress size give or take one size. You should not have to try on all the sizes. There is no way a size 18 woman is going to squeeze into a size 8. Accept your size and move on. Quit deluding yourself. And wasting salespeople's time. And don't expect us to tell you you look fabulous when you're stuffed into something like a sausage and you can barely fasten it. We will try and tell you tactfully, don't get mad at us!
