You know what I can’t stand? No, I guess you don’t so I will tell you.
Store greeters. I don’t dislike them on a personal level. I’m sure that they are quite lovely and pleasant people. I just have an aversion to what they do. You see, I don’t particularly like talking to people . . . especially strangers. Perhaps it was my upbringing . . . stranger danger! stranger danger! I don’t know but . . . with the exception of my beloved hubby and my angsty teenager . . . on any given day I would be happy not to have to talk to anyone . . . at all.
So, when I walk into a store and am practically forced to speak to someone . . . someone I don’t know . . . it goads me somewhat. Since . . . again because of how I was raised . . . I can’t bring myself to be rude and ignore them. I feel compelled . . . nay . . . obligated to respond in kind . . . and kindly. That makes irks me.
I just want to go about my business, collect my items to purchase, pay for them and leave . . . without having to say a word to anyone. Is that too much to ask?
What’s worse is that I can’t avoid them. They’re right there . . . standing there . . . waiting to welcome me (or any other person who strolls through the door). And when I leave . . . they’re right there . . . standing there . . . waiting to wish me (or any other person who is departing the store) a pleasant day.
And that’s they’re job. They get paid to do this.
That is all I have to say about that.
And don't even get me started on the people hanging around malls and store trying to ask people survey questions . . .
