Re: Things That Drive You Crazy Redux
Suggestive selling. If I want fries, I'll ask for them, likewise dessert. If I'm paying for fuel at the Flying J, and I didn't bring anything else to the counter, it's because I don't need anything else besides fuel.
The most annoying one was a couple weeks ago down in Alabama. I have been trying to cut down on the soft drinks somewhat and I've been pretty good about it, but I still like one every now and then. My idea of cutting down is exactly that, but my wife's idea is that you cut something out entirely. One evening I stopped for fuel and it was around 11:00 pm and I still had 300 miles left to do. Caffeine was sounding like a pretty good idea. I was on the phone with my wife as well because when I'm on the road we always talk right before she goes to bed. I came up to the fuel desk with a Coke in hand to pay for along with the fuel I had pumped and the clerk, who probably didn't notice the bluetooth on my ear, spoke to me like she didn't know I was on the phone. What she said was heard clearly by my wife on the other end of the phone. "Would you like some chips to go with that soda pop?"
