Snobby salespeople in high-end stores. - Page 5

Has it occurred to anyone that Marc37's post might have been intended as satire? It sounded quite reminiscent of American Psycho to me. Marc37 wrote a faux Jason Bateman narrative and the entire board took it seriously.
Interesting take on that. It's PATRICK Bateman by the way. Gezz, I love that movie.

Yes, I mentioned that it was Patrick. If you like the movie, I suggest the book; it is much better than the movie. It completes the full view of the actual character and shows certain depth that makes him more of a real person; compared to the abstraction they show in the movie. Plus, there is a lot (typical) that the movie does not show. Just a warning, there are some less than happy passages in the book that might not settle well with everybody (the disembowelment of people, uses of certain small mammals as torture devices, etc...). Regarding the movie, I am currently listening to one of the songs used in the movie, New Order's "˜True Faith'; it might not be Huey Lewis and the News "˜Hip to be Square', but still... Jon. It's Paul Owens, not Allen.

The book rocks. I love the part where he eats the jellyfish and handfulls of sand. Have you read Rules of Attraction? It's a really quick, interesting read.

Am I the only one who preferred the movie? The book was more disturbing, sure, but the movie was more fun...

I thought Marc37's story was hilarious. I'm willing to give him the benefit of doubt, and believe that, instead of actively pushing her with two arms outstretched, he merely bumped into her on purpose causing her to lose her footing (she was probably wearing expensive heels) and fell into a gutter. I find it hilarious that people are using a single post of his to judge his character. He's no regular troll (unlike some others.) It's just one post on one silly situation. It's not like he's flaming people with personal attacks. It's not like he's pretending to be someone he's not. That makes him ok in my book. But, I guess I'm one of the few who appreciates comedy and hyperbole. I'm just curious as to how management is treating these snobby salespeople. I'm sure they realize that they're losing potential customers this way. I wonder how much money some stores lose because the people inside are intent on acting like jackholes. Sure, the salespeople here follow me around and such (even when I'm not wearing a skimask) but I always thought that to be part of their training, especially since they offer to answer more questions than to demand that I put the merchandise down. There's one thing I really hate, though, and this has nothing to do with snobbishness as much as it has to do with their job training. Every single time, when I'm looking at shirts and ties, a lady zones in on me to "help." This "help" consists of her taking a tie, knotting it, and placing it under a shirt. This shirt is either solid white or light blue. One time a lady (again, trying to be helpful) took a blue tie, knotted it, and placed it under a light blue shirt. I had to resist slapping my forehead. Edit: My new avatar is from the movie "Officespace" by Mike Judge. In this scene, a man takes his vengeance not on a man (or woman) but... on a printer.

The book and movie are on equal footing for me. The acting was top notch in the movie, while the book further developed the story and characters. The book and movie for 2001: A Space Oddsey were equally good as well.

You are spot on Alias. l only intended to bump her but she was clumbsy enough to fall over (half my luck). l am speachless about the gossip saying marc37 is a basher and bad person etc. How do they know: l have laughed hard at these stupid generalisations. l should use this thread for a stand-up comedy act: the childishness is just ridiculous - 6 pages of marc is this and marc is that. Get over it, it's a clothing forum. lt happened a long time ago. For the record; l am sorry that l did it because it lowered me to an unacceptable level. Thanks Alias for your support; you seem to be one of the only ones who get my humour: the yanks take themselves so seriously don't they.

Marc, I never for a second thought that anyone who espouses wheatgrass enemas could possibly shove a rude woman into a gutter. You're all right.

Psst: here's a suggestion; can we cut the monkey business and get on with the topic at hand. No more hijacking the thread. P.S: Kalra2411, thanks for keeping an open frame of mind and not judging me. Gee you can talk old son. l have never known anyone to ramble on like you do; have you ever considered being a politician. They waffle on for hours. (No offence intended). Alias: cut it out old son. Common, ditch the bashing avatar will ya. Gee whiz, l'm not really a bad guy. l am a very popular and well liked fellow in the flesh. l sometimes talk with attitude because the territory goes with the avatar.

J: your a mighty fine man son and don't let anyone tell you otherwise. P.S: my avatar is the vision of cruelness. lt is cold and hates everyone. lt is called the h8man b8man (hate-man bateman) not the gr8-man b8man (greatman bateman). Be aware of the avatar: he loves to inflict suffering whilst the victums are subjected to intensely brutal satanic death metal. lt is stuff of the worst brutal nightmares.

Oof, am I one of the few who does not judge people for crazy experiences? I also have the ooposite reaction to many of you, I run away from obnoxious salespeople, an improvement over my past reaction, which was to run away and go to bed ill for the rest of the day. Of my purchases made since I learned about these forums, standouts in superior courtesy have been the tailor Centofanti, for eccentricity and obnoxiousness, the shirtmaker Sheila Harris, and for downright insultingness, the shoe salesman at Cambridge (one of two Alden shops in Philadelphia). The shoe people at Boyds are obnoxious to a man, really awful, to the point I complained to another sales person in a different department, who forced me to speak to a manager. I regretted saying anything afterwards. Boyds sells Santonis and Albaladejos, by the way. I think the fact that so many people in retail are obnoxious shows that nothing is 100 percent efficient. Probably the obnoxius ones sell something that sells itself, like Aldens or Harris bespoke shirts for that matter, which are very nice at the right price (115 dollars).

If you wish to discuss the implications of pushing a rude woman over to teach her a lesson, or the propriety of accusing a person who reports he has done so of being violent, or the use of outlandish adjectives to describe such behaviour, kindly start a separate topic, in the General Chat section, with an appropriate title, so uninterested members may avoid the conversation.
Thank, you, j. I jumped to the end of this topic first, to see what the latest comment on the topic was, and to see if I could add anything of value. Imagine my surprise on "opening the door" here and finding a verbal melee in full progress. Like walking into a saloon fight and a beer mug wizzes past your face. My first thought was, "Wha' happun?" and my second thought was "What a shame to see this on a board that I have to date welcomed as a refuge from so many others where confrontation is almost daily fare." I agree with J. There are appropriate places where these debates can continue. But I came to this "bar" to drink from the topic, not have it hurled in my face.

I like when he takes the urinal cake, covers chocolate over it, puts it in a Godiva box and gives it to Evenly as a gift and he watches her eating it just because it is from Godiva, regardless how horribly bad it tastes. Also, the fact that he can tell almost exactly what everybody is wearing and which company made the particular item is a pretty impressive skill. If you are going to violently kill someone with an axe to the face, you might as well do it whilst well dressed: Jon.

Shirt collar is too short (even for a spread).

Well, when you murder somebody because he got "the Fisher account" (or additionally in the movie, because he can get into Dorsia), I think the length of your cutaway collar is really the least of your problems. Jon. "TRY GETTING A RESERVATION AT DORSIA NOW YOU FUCKING STUPID BASTARD. YOU, FUCKING BASTARD." (Just quoting the movie...don't flame me because of the language)
