Future Shop Be Damned
There's nothing I love more than going to Future Shop to check out latest toys. What I DON'T like is being hounded by stupid annoying salespeople who not try to belittle me, acting like they know more about computers and electronics than I do. HA! Of course, let's not forget the part where they try to sell you crap that you don't need (like fancy cables when you buy a DVD player), and the crowning touch, STALKING! Today, the other half and I went to Future Shop to pick up an item. As we were looking at that item, we were hounded by TWO salespeople, one after the other. Even after we told them that we were "just browsing", they still kept hovering around, and tried to "subtly" follow us around. After we picked up our item, one of them followed us to the cash. WTF? Sensing that we were being followed, we took a quick detour around the store to ensure that this guy didn't end up claiming an undeserved commision. These guys have some nerve. The moral of the story? Go to Best Buy instead.
