I once attended a meeting where a certain Lt. Col F'd and Blinded from start to finish. There were two ladies present, my boss and me. After the meeting he apologised profusely to us. We accepted his apologies graciously.I ******* doubt it...
The missus had similar treatment in a bank.Shop assistants who get grumpy when customers have the cheek to ask questions. (Are you listening Cook store in Dorchester?)
The woman was so busy counting boxes of new stock that she told her colleague off for interrupting to ask my question (colleague was new and didn't know, but thought she was doing the right thing by finding out).
After answering the question she became more grumpy when I asked to place an order. 'Can you go online?' She asked.
I answered 'I can, but I prefer to talk to someone in store so I can ask questions.'
Her reply 'Well I am busy with bringing this big delivery in, can you go online?'
I left the shop, shaking my head in wonder at the retail industry.
