Retail weirdos...

Leeds. Picking up daughter. Stopped off at PC World/Currys at Birstall Shopping Park on the way back, where the staff outnumbered customers by a ratio of around 15:1. Most annoying. Was asked if I needed any help at least six times, and how I was today on about 10 occasions. The activity of browsing around the shop was soiled by being followed at close quarters by keen sales staff who pounced whenever my gaze remained on an object for more than three seconds. Thus, we gave up looking in the end and bade a retreat. This is not the way to sell anything, retail weirdos! We followed that experience with the much more pleasurable task of eating meatballs over at Ikea.
