This weekend I went into the city roaming around all the nicest watch ADs in the area. I tried on a few nice watches that I am considering for the next purchase. Now we had the plenty of uninformed sales people threads before and the argument always goes after 20 plus pages "well they don't get paid enough to be an expert" to criticizing them to "they should be fired" this rant isn't about that. I am leaving out brand names as its not the point. I just want to know what YOU would say if this is the situation you were in. You walk into an AD wearing a watch you love. You are looking at a few different watches and finally see something you are interested in. The salesperson pulls out the watch you want to see. You take off the watch you are wearing and place it on the counter to slip on the new watch. As you are examining the new watch the salesperson picks up your watch (without permission) and says "ohhh, yeah... this will be a nice upgrade to what you have now" meanwhile the watch you wore into the store is double the price with twice the history and prestige of the brand you are looking at but they have no idea. Hey, its OK if they have no idea but should they say "this will be a nice upgrade to what you have now." ??? Even if it wasn't more valuable, does that matter? What if that watch was 20 dollars but was handed down to you by a relative you cared about and it means the world to you? How would you react to this? I didn't say anything except, "oh thats what you think, ok" and took her business card and said I will think about it. Next stop was a trash can where it met her business card down the street.
