I was at the mall and I happened to stop in Hot Topic just to see if there were any cool belts or anything I wanted. There wasn’t. Just as I was leaving, the girl behind the counter rushed up to me and was like "wait, did you see this? it’s only $15!" It was the most god-awful gaudy Punisher belt buckle either. I just kinda stared at it for a second. Then I realized I was wearing a punisher t-shirt. I guess that sorta kinda makes sense. Maybe the guy who has a t-shirt on might like a matching belt buckle. I politely declined. In reality, the guy in the Punisher t-shirt just happened to be wearing it because it was clean.
Does the hard sale ever work in a mall ever? Every time I walk by like one of the Sprint cellular kiosks while using my iphone, the guys rush out and try to convince me that I should switch away from my iPhone to whatever they’re hawking this month. Seriously? Has this ever worked on even one person? I mean, maybe if I’m carrying around a $20 cheap phone you could convince me to buy your phone. But really, if I paid $400 for an iPhone I think its reasonable to assume that I probably know what I’m doing enough that i WANT A FUCKING IPHONE YOU ASSHOLE!
