Here is a published story from a British webpage called The Daily Mail. In this story, Ms. Liz Jones unleashes hell and many etiquette blunders on the poor unsuspecting sales associates of various British retailers. Her reasoning? They don’t serve well enough, so she went “undercover” to grade the stores based on their ability to do things such as guess her size, bring clothes to her dressing room, and return a piece of lingerie that she wore into the store. Here is the link:
I can agree with some of her more generalized points, to be polite and smiling to the customers who patronize your store. But it seems as if Ms. Jones expects personal shoppers to predict her every want. I admit, I have twice had sales associates offer to bring me different sizes when I was in the dressing room, and I was pleased with their attention, but I would never think to demand service like this in every store. 0119-11
