Sinclair stopped sending e-mails about new shops. Any one noticed that?
You know OP, some bad mshopping experiences can really make us better shoppers. Those problematic ones are the ones that stay in my mind. I sort of categorize them. When they fall under 'Never again' category, even a substantial bonus would never make me budge. But there are times when I am in a good mood and up to a challenge. You never know, a better scheduler or another MSC may handle it. Or Guidelines could have improved to your liking.
Take this example for instance. It's a bar shop where you have to sit with a partner at the bar stools or the shop is useless. Never again, I said.
All I remembered was the frustrations we felt at not getting two bar stools for almost an hour. I thought, "I could have done this if I was alone." Lo and behold, I got an email for a bar shop. It specifically said, having a guest was not required.
Thanks to your thread, I am reminded of many shops I would not touch with a ten-foot pole. But who knows...
