I went to a computer store to get a printer. I wandered for a bit, and the salesman finally noticed me. He said, "Can I help you?" As I started to say, "I need a printer with-" he cut me off to greet a male. I'm a female. I waited for him to finish his conversation, and he did help me after that. I brought the printer, but I wasn't excited about it. This was last week.
Went back today looking for a cable. Different salesman. Same flipping thing. Another woman was standing nearby, looking at things like she needed something, but no one offered to help her.
I took the printer back. Never again. Silly me, I didn't know I needed "equipment" to have value as a customer. I know these guys work on commission too, so I don't get it.
