    #2414142 - 03/10/04 10:43 AM (13 years, 20 days ago)

Dont you just hate it when a store clerk asks you, "can I help?"
Its the one thing I dred every time I go to a store, I'm just waiting for that question to be popped and inside I'm like ARRRRRGGGGHHH everytime it gets asked.  DOnt they know how annoying it is themselves, its alot more welcoming to be able to look around without having to be asked that question every god damn time...AAAAAHHHHH! :nut: :mad2:
Dont yoy hate it when the store clerk asks if she/he can help?
You may choose only one
Yes
No

I work retail, and if I don't do this, I will get fired. YOu don't want the clerk to lose their job do you? Besides, is it so wrong to try to help someone? I find at my work(retail garden center) that about 3 out of 4 people DO want my help.

I hate it because I like to be left alone in a store, if I need help I will ask for it. :wink:

I hate it when I go into some trendy retail store with the music blaring and some ignorant teenager asks if she can help you and you say no thanks. Then she/he decides to follow you around the store and comment on the selections you make. I was with my wife and we were shopping for clothes and this stupid bitch decides to tell my wife that these 70's style clothes where very cool (after we told her we didn't need/want her help). I told the sales person that those clothes she said were cool were the dumbest looking clothes I have ever seen (and they were) and I wouldn't be caught dead in them. She got the hint and left us alone but still kind of followed us around.

Exactly, but nooooo these stupid clerks have to go and on like parrots thinking people cant ask for themselves. Sorry nicechrisman, I'm blaming the bosses then, not the clerks... but since you work in retail, have you ever seen anybody being bothered by that question? I'm not the type to get pissed and show it everytime I'm asked, I politely say, "no thankyou... just browsing" but I'm sure I've given the impression that I've just been asked the most annoying question on certain occasions.

I've worked in a toy store once, i was told to ask every person that came in if they wanted help and show them a big fat smile, I never asked them if they wanted help unless they looked like they needed it and I never smiled from ear to ear... there's a differance between being commercially insane and pleasant.

my girlfriend works at pacsun, and they HAVE to do what is called suggestive retail or some bullshit. she has to pick out clothes and go tell people it would look good on them, or ask if they want to try it on, etc. she hates it, but their regional manager makes them do it. they only did while he was around before, but they got a new store manager, and now have to all the time... :\

I hate it too!!! I just like to be left alone when I shop, making my own decisions. If I want help, I'll ask for it!

And it sucks that some employee's are forced to 'assist' the customer.

Lol... clerks being forced to annoy customers is whats really happening.  The strangest thing is that clerks or bosses for that sake never realize how annoying it is to go shopping and get asked that question themselves... :rolleyes:

you've obviously have never worked a retail job the requires high sales goals & credit sign-ups. If you dont interface with customers continously, you get fired.

So, always smile & be friendly to the workers even if its annoying :heart: they have no choice in the matter.

Yep its all too annoying OOOOw sir would you like that sir suit you sir oow sir, to me its ass kissing and thank god i dont have to do that kinda job.

I think security guards are just as bad cos as soon as you walk into the shop they follow you every where esp if your the only one there.

It kinda makes me way too paranoid just cos i dress diffrently not scruffy but just with music t-shirts that kinda things. What I should start to do is follow them see how they like it.

:lol:Yeah!  I know what I mean, its really bad with me when I'm all covered up in my punk gear (and when I had my mohawk) looking at cute mice in pet stores!  I've been TOLD from the counter that I cant buy them if I am going to give them to a snake or something!
I just laughed!  I should have snatched them from the cage and started running out saying, "WELL WHAT IF I STEAL THEM"!!! :tongue:

If someone offering to help you freaks you out, then it sounds to me like you people may have some social anxiety issues...

i went into a smoke shop and the bastard that owns it practically ran up to the door to check our id's. he then proceeded to follow us everywhere, pointing to an item and explaining how he took the price "all the way down from...(insert price here)". he was an annoying/desperate fuck so we left without purchasing anything after spending less than a minute in the store.

I can see how high pressure sales like that can be VERY annoying. I don't, however find it annnoying if a salesperson asks if they can help me.
