Kiosk sales people have destroyed my mall experience
June 15, 2011
So I was not having a great day today so I decided to buy a piece of luggage.
See I’m starting a new job in a few weeks and I think that this new job might be one where I could really / comfortably take a vacation. Seriously leave the office and unplug and not freak out about what I would come back to piled on my desk.
I thought that by purchasing a good piece of luggage it would make me feel better about my no good day.
And it sort of did… isn’t it pretty?
I used to love going to the mall. I used to be a shopper. Hardcore retail therapy believer. But my mall experience has been completely destroyed by the kiosk hawkers. They make it impossible for me to meander and browse at leisure. I feel that I have to rush by them.
I’ve been caught in their trap before and now I know better. Once bitten, twice shy and all that. So now I ignore them and rush past them.
It just makes me want to get out of the mall as fast as I can.
Which is probably for the best but I kind of miss the days when I could wander around and enjoy myself.
oh well… that’s life.
