Where do you live that people are treating you this way? I have never had anyone be so rude.

That story reminds me of the Scene in Pretty Woman when Vivian asks how much an outfit is and they just say "very expensive"

There are a lot of nice people in my area, but most of the rude to me are my age still in college and think they are better than everyone.


I try to limit my shooping to places where I know the sales person.The curious part is that the rudest are the ones that work in the mid level stores.

The ones that work in the most exclusive or the ones that are family run are the nicest to me. Because most of the time they know that a happy client is someone that will return and tell their friends about the great service and know that just because you are not dress up , does not mean you can't afford what they are selling.

One time I went to Wilson Leather with the intent of buying a leather jacket to replace one that I used to have. When I walked into the store the sales lady was on the phone and I could hear from the context that it was a personal call. She barley even glanced at me and then went back to her conversation. I decided she was rude and wasnt getting my money so I left. The next day I went to the Wilson Leather outlet at a different mall and saw the same jacket for 75% off!! The rude sales lady saved me over $100!

That is awesome Lelia!

I went to Academy to exchange a shirt i bought in the wrong size. Well the "customer service" person (young girl) answered the phone to another employee who was calling in sick or something...but she started talking about some party or something. She sat on the phone for like 5 minutes and then says "sorry my computer is broken"

i couldnt believe it!

Luckily I haven't had to deal with any rude sales people because if they were rude I would simply go to a different person. When I went to buy my car it was the first car I had ever actualyl bought and it was BRAND new. So I was excited. I had alot of questions and I had done my research. When I decided to actually go shopping for the car I went to a few different car places. the first one I went to all the sales people were guys. They all assumed that since I was a young lady that they were going to have an easy time with me... The first stare I got the wrong way I walked out and made sure to tell them that I was going to go to the other toyota dealership in the area. That one wasn't going that well either because the "salesman" I was sent to was being a real jerk. He was saying things like "I am sure that this is what you are looking for right? A pretty girl like you? Wheres you husband?"

He knew I wasn't married and he could tell his comments were pissing me off. So I saw another sales guy walk by. I asked him if he was busy and if he would mind helping me out. He wasn't busy and wanted to know why I was sick of that guy. I told him and within an hour I had all of my questions answered. he was very sweet about helping me out and everything. I bought my car from him and he got the commission from my purchase. They sent me two satisfactory surveys for each one of the guys and I filled them both out one not so great and one was awesome. I found out a week later that They guy who actually sold me my car had just had a baby with his wife a few days after I left... So it all worked out.

As we grow older, as we continue to change with age, there is one thing that will never change about me, I will keep falling in love with you all over again every single day

Drm that is awesome. I am awaiting a survey in the mail for refinancing our house. I had a horrible time with the lady that we had to deal with and we never once met her in person. Everytime we were supposed to she was "sick" or her car "broke down" or something to do with her son. And it isnt like we were asking to meet her during unreasonable hours...they were work hours!

We started trying to refinance in February and just finished last week because she took her sweet ass time with everything. We started before the huge rush of refinancing happened AND we explained to her that we needed it done by the end of May because of my husband leaving! The only time she finally moved fast is when I sent her a nasty email saying if she didnt contact me immediatly i would take my business elsewhere!

Today at my lunch hour , I went shopping with my friends and we went to this fancy store that sells really fancy and famous shoes , I have shop at this store before so I knew my size and I went to the sales person that I knew. There was this other lady , I don't know her that well but I know that she is an important person she and her husband own a really sucesfull business and she is a sweetheart, her english is not the best (just like me LOL) and she was having trouble pronouncing the name of the shoe but you could tell which shoe she was talking about, but the other sales person keep rolling her eyes ,asking her to said the name again and smirking. The lady just left because she knew that she was making fun of her , after me and my friend paid for our shoes ,I went to the sales person and gave her a smirk and told her it was so sad that she lost that comission because the lady was known for her huge shopping spree.

lol I am always amazed at the things mothers and expectant mothers deal with. For instance, I always think it is astounding when people ask pregnant mothers how far along they are or when they're going to "pop".

what if she isn't really pregnant? What if she's just got a belly? How humiliating.

A friend of mine just goes off about how when her children are small, people will reach in the baby carrier when she is out shopping or whatever, and actually TOUCH her infants. In their defense, her children are the kinds of kids who are exceptionally cute and you just WANT to touch them. LOL But seriously, who touches a strangers' baby? Good way to get a black eye, I think.

OMG I don't even like people touching my dogs without asking and they are big and can take car of themselves. I can't imagine what I will do when I have a kid and a stranger tries to touch it.

DPN - We had that same problem with our mortgage broker! She told us we should streamline our loan in December but because she wouldn't get her act together we didn't close until the end of April. She'd never call us or would return our calls but everytime we were gonig to switch to someone else she'd say she was ready to go so we'd call her up to set up a closing time and she'd say "Oh, its not fully ready, maybe next week"

Care - those shirts are awesome! I'm getting the "my baby will kick you" one when i get preggers!

So last wednesday we took our dog in to be boarded while we were out of town. A lady wanted to pet her but my dog wouldn't come close to her, she's really shy around new people, so the lady pulled out a treat to convince her to come closer which i was fine with.
She then grabs my dog by her front legs and picks her up!! My dog nipped at her and she got all mad and she told me that I needed to teach my dog some manners, well HELLO! dont go around picking up people's dogs! I was so mad at the lady! It made me think of this thread right away!

Wait a lady pulled out a treat to give to your dog?!?! Oh I HATE that (and hello she totally deserved to be snapped at). One of my dogs has a stomach condition and is on a very strict diet and treats can make him really sick. The other one I adopt when she was four years old, the person who had her before me starved her so she has some food issues. She gets very possessive about food so we try to be careful about feeding her around other dogs. I get so angry when people try to give them treats without asking. Do they walk around just handing out candy to kids?

PP I am pretty protective of my dogs if someone had tried to grab one of them by the paw I may have snapped at them myself!

Oh my god.

I seriously would have told her to go eff herself. Seriously, if there's one thing in my life you just don't touch, it's my dog.

And if I had to add a second thing to that list, it's my car. Don't touch my effing car. I can't tell you how much I want to dump soda over someones windshield when they park too close to me and their door hits mine.

<----is super pissy today.
