Avoid this place!, 2/15/2010

The female salesclerk is really bad to customers, and what's worse, in an extremely subtle and sophisticated way. It's the kind of salesclerk who makes sure to treat customers bad, but does it in... ways too subtle or intangible as to risk being held liable for. First time there, she was extremely unhelpful and unpolite in this refined and subtle way (pretending not to understand which jewelry I was asking for, etc). I didn't care much as I thought she just had a bad day. I've been working as a salesclerk myself, so I know that some days you're simply in a bad mood. But then, I went there a second time when I, again, wanted to buy a jewelry. This time I specifically went there with a positive attitude, since sometimes you can even "win" unfriendly people over if you just treat them in a nice way. But she behaved just as bad, in the same subtle, slippery way (for instance, speaking barely inaudible and then making it all seem like I was obtuse for not hearing, just one of those things). She gave me the jewelry I was interested in, mumbled something that sounded like I could have it for free (?), so when I asked if that's what she said, she sighed, rolled her eyes, tapped a price on her calculator, slammed it to the desk, turned it to me, gave me this face that you'd get if you were a trying customer (!), and asked "does this make it easier for you?", thereby confirming that I heard right. (!) I wouldn't recommend anyone supporting this business.
