Recent shopping trip with a friend

I can't afford psychotherapy right now so of course I turn to the forum. I get so frustrated at this co-worker of mine. He's constantly asking for advice on clothing purchases and then always ignores any suggestions.

He decides he wants to go to Jos Bank today to look at their sportcoats. Ok, he likes the place. Since he had mentioned ties in the $25 range, prior to going I had mentioned the great prices on Talbott Best of Class ties on eBay (compared to what Bank has to offer), showing him many styles at around the $25 price range.

After avoiding a pushy salesperson the entire time, he ends up buying a Bank tie at $25 on sale, a junk tie (in addition to the bland, $68 sportcoat). I know it's his decision, but does anyone else out there have friends who want help shopping and then for some reason always ignore any suggestions and you end up wondering why you're there trying to help?

I know, probably the wrong place for this rant, but I feel better now. Everyone just send me a bill for my session.
