Shop Assistants

I always try my best to be friendly to shop assistants, I know their wages are not brilliant and at times they can have a pretty shitty job, but sometimes they can be such arseholes.
Looking for a camcorder type thing, and went into my local Currys. O.K., it was fairly near closing time, but went in and headed off to the camera counter to look and see what was on display. (I knew the features that were important to me, just uncertain on the exact model.) Around the shop were one or two customers, but also various members of staff all busy talking to each other. So after 10 minutes waiting and then seeing that they were starting to close the entrance, gave up hoping to be served.
Next day (having researched the exact model I wanted) went to Jessops where a reasonably O.K. assistant wanted to sell a shop-soiled item at full price, which did not impress me. Down to John Lewis where despite saying I was after High Definition, the assistant really did not know what he was doing and started showing me anything and everything. Off to a different Jessops and a sales assistant girl who I will just describe as ‘rather ignorant’ and that you can interpret that in whatever way you want!
So chilling-out in Starbucks before returning to Jessops and look for a different assistant and hopefully, without too many silly questions, just get the model I’m after.
