I found a fairly expensive tie I liked in an upscale department store today. As I was looking it over, I noticed a group of small threads sticking out from the front of the tie. It was a small defect, but definitely a defect. I showed it to the saleswoman (who looked about 20 years old) and asked if she had another one in the back of the store. She replied that she didn't and then asked me where I found the tie. After I showed her, she put the tie back on the shelf. It surprised me that she would do this, and especially surprised me that she would do this while I was watching. I politely told her that, since there was a problem with the tie, she take it off display. She basically ignored me so I informed the manager what had happened and showed her the defect. I left as the manager and a salesman were examining and discussing the tie so I'm not sure if it ended up back on the shelf in the end.
