I went into Burlington Coat Factory, looking for a belt. Burlington Coat Factory is a huge store, that features mainly clothing.
I circled the men's department twice, looking for belts. No luck.
By the front of the store, I encountered a group of sales people, standing around, looking like they were guarding this one display. A supervisor looking person was talking to ONE in a loud voice. I asked one (who didn't seem to be doing anything) where men's belts were. She couldn't be bothered to raise her arm, she lifted one hand (waist level) to point at the miles of men's clothing and said "there". I waited patiently for another word, so she said "in the men's department."
After successfully suppressing the urge to say "well DUH
", I said "could you be more specific?".
She said she didn't know, she didn't work in that department. Well, she could have asked one of the other three standing there with her.
So I walked off, in search of, not men's belts, but a sales associate who gave a rat's Ooo, I tried to get around the word filter with a nasty word.. It seemed pointless to continue that conversation.
This other salesperson came scrambling up to me(from the opposite directions) and asked "what are you looking for?" The supervisor lady behind me said "men's belts".
I didn't find one, but it was nearly closing time and as I was leaving the supervisor was standing by the door and I told her "it will be over soon".
