If you’ve ever worked retail (shouldn’t there be a law mandating that we all should at some point? Even stevens, ya know?) one or more of these might spark a memory in you. They are the customers that stand out, that irk us a bit, that leave us shaking out heads, rolling our eyes or with that “did that really just happen?” deer in headlights look…
The Sample Seeker: We’ve all seen them, the customer that seems to troll the counters asking for samples but is never seen actually buying anything. Last year a friend of mine that works in the cosmetic department of a certain high end store told me about a wealthy woman who ‘self sampled’ all their most expensive eye creams. This woman was known to sport some pretty swanky name brands and was seemingly dripping in cash but would scoop out the contents of luxe creams into her own jars with her fingers. Cringe.
