Shopping in Germany... Part 2

Went to one of these... home depot, I think you call them... places, because I needed a small plastic bottle with a dropper tip, so I could put some machine oil into my perpetually frozen car door lock. I picked up a few other things along the way, then went looking for that bottle. Hm... nothing there.

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.

Shopping in Germany. Always an experience.... >.
