Decided to look for sales person. No sales person anywhere.
Decided to stand at one of the information desks, to wait for a sales person to miraculously appear. Instead, I see manager person come wandering up, to be waylaid by an elderly couple, wanting to by a small oil-burning stove. So far, so good.
I stand at the information desk, watching and listening to manager person and this couple - who seem to be on quite friendly terms, obviously knowing each other well - discuss the merits of grandfather's oil oven versus new, that oil always reeks, that they haven't bought a xmas tree yet and so on. Manager person keeps looking back at me, who is *still* standing patiently, waiting at information desk. He does that *three* times! Not *once* does he get the idea to perhaps *call* another sales person. Nope. Having a nice neighborly talk, instead. Obviously, since I'm still standing there - which he ascertains with another glance - I have nothing better to do, and since I obviously *need* something (or I wouldn't be standing there waiting), I'm quite willing to wait *another* 10 Minutes (or longer) until someone finally appears. Maybe.
I turn around and walk off.
I'm sure I can get this kind of bottle on the internet. Without the hassle. It's even worth paying the shipping charge for it, to make sure I get it delivered. To me. Personally. Right to my very door.
