First of all, and I'm sure that most if not all places must get people like this, what is with the people who insist on inspecting all the stock so that they may determine which is the "best" one so that they may purchase it? I had a woman yesterday, who was otherwise nice enough, spend 20 minutes looking through our "pre-viewed sale DVDs". (Translation: We rented them out to people, now we don't need em, so you can buy em!) When she came up to the counter, she had 5 copies of each of the 4 movies she wanted to buy. She insisted that I open every one, inspect them all, and give her the 'best' ones.
Now, let me just say this. Before we are allowed to sell any pre-viewed or pre-played goods, we have to put it through the disc inspector, clean it with the polisher, clean it by hand if it still doesn't look fabulous, and run it through the inspector again. I've never once had someone return a faulty movie they bought from us.
Basically, all the discs are the same. Same content, same quality, same lack of damage. How do these SCs expect us to pick the best out of a bunch of identical items?
Secondly, I am just so sick of any and all people who have conversations with me like this:
Them: Hey, I was wondering if you could help me with [Something]
Me: Oh, well, I really don't know anything about [Something], I can't help you there... you should ask Bob about that, I can't help you.
Them: Oh, ok. Cos what I was going to ask was blah blah blah blah?
Me: ...... Yeah.... I really don't know anything about that. You should ask Bob.
Them: Oh yeah I absolutely will. I was just wondering if etc etc
