A very rude saleswoman and the salesman who saved the sale
I had an eye exam last night and went to pick out frames for my new prescription.
The man who waited on me had also helped my husband and my oldest son pick out their new frames, so I was very confident in his ability, but I was taking awhile, and he was near his quitting time, so I told him to go ahead and leave.
Well, a saleswoman came over and told me there was no way my prescription could fit in the frames I wanted. I would have to get huge frames, the size of my head, to get it to fit. She started picking out frames that I had no interest in and were not in anyway near the style I picked out.
She then told me that there was no way, no how I could have the frames I wanted without screwing up my prescription. She even tried to tell me that my husband and the salesman where wrong, there was no way my husband's prescription could have fit in the small frames my husband had ordered.
My husband and I walked out, I had about had it with her not even trying to work with me and then calling us liars.
I go in today and I wait for the salesman who helped my husband and son. He told me I could have the frames I wanted, without screwing up my prescription at all, it would just cost more, because it's special lenses that has to be ordered. The same special lenses that he had ordered for my husband's glasses.
I placed my order with him and am getting the frames I want. Plus, he gave us a huge discount. He is the reason we didn't pull all of our orders from the store and I told him that. I told him from now on, we will always ask for him when we go in.
I don't know what the saleswoman's problem was, if she thought I couldn't afford the special lenses or what. I certainly got the impression she thought I couldn't afford anything, since she was showing me very cheap frames, not even near the style I had picked out. She was also going on and on about the cheap lenses they have available.
I may go cheap on somethings, but my family's glasses are not one those things.
Do not annoy the woman with the flamethrower!
