Josh bought a ship in a thin glass bottle for £3.50. Not only was the lady behind the counter completely reluctant to make her way out of the back-shop, she was rude and there was no offer to parcel the item up to ensure it wouldn't be broken by the time we got it home. Is a little bit of newspaper or bubble wrap too much to ask for?! I honestly don't think she spoke except to bark the price at him - since when is that acceptable in any line of customer service? Do these volunteers think that giving up their time for free makes them exempt from showing decent manners?!
We went into another two shops on the same road. In the next one, nobody even bothered to stick their head around the door into the shop to say hi and in the final one, the Manager looked so angry that we'd deigned to step through the door!
Has anyone else experienced this?
Despite some awful service, I did manage to make a few purchases.
I love these boots I picked up in Sue Ryder in Didsbury for a fiver which will go well with both this Topshop shirt from Barnardos (£3.79) and this Forever 21 skirt (£2.75) from Mind.
