We were walking past this furniture store at Liang Court when we spotted this unique coffee table. We couldn't tell if it was glass or acrylic, so we went to feel it with our fingers. Glass. Just then, a staff walked out from inside the store and started babbling.
"... you cannot touch the glass..."
"... it will crack..."
"... the table is 2000 over dollars..."
"... if you scratch the glass then customer will not buy..."
"... we have cameras all around so we can catch and make you pay...."
Hello, I know your store is going the atas
direction, but what are you taking us for? I don't look like I do, but I own a few pieces of iF design award winning and Red Dot award winning stuffs, not to mention some designed by Philippe Starck. And one of us is a new home-owner, so you have basically killed potential sales. Expert sales killer.
And by the way, you have just self-pwned. If a few fingers touching the glass will crack it, then what makes you (or customers) think that the table will not crack under the sheer
weight of teapot and cups and magazines and newspaper and remote control?
Next time when you are in the area, do check out this trendy coffee table and the equally amusing staff.
Do people in the retail sector always classify certain people according to their appearance and assume that they walk into their store only to mess around or to enjoy the aircon, and not to buy and spend? Do customers need to show LV bags or Rolex watch or Ferrari car key?
