I had the pleasure of visiting Drummond Woolloongabba today

The Drummond website is advertising Wilson gloves for $9.77 and Trident 14 way bag for $96

I was looking at gloves when the help arrived (chubby blond woman late 50's) 
She: Can I help? 
Me: Yes I am looking for man's left hand glove under $10
She: These are 30% off today. shows me $25 and and $18 gloves
Me: Do you have any gloves under $10?
She: These other ones here are 25% off
Me: Do you have any gloves under $10? Simple question!
She: These are discount

I walk to golf bags
Me: I am looking for a 14 slot golf bag under $100
She: These bags are 30% off today
Me: Straight question. DO YOU HAVE A 14 SLOT BAG UNDER $100 PLEEEEAAAASE?
She: All are bags are good discount. 

She then looks at price tags. Obviously not a clue

I then say if she can't help me I am going to Golf Clearance Outlet

Then she tells me that "Golf Clearance Outlet don't sell genuine brand golf bags, they sell bags from all sorts of places overseas. Not genuine"

The result? I wasted time walking there expecting service. How can Drummond run a business with fools like her on staff?

Is it company policy to tell lies about their competitors?

Never again

 

I bought my gloves (but no bag) at GCO

Or did he get a chubby when he saw her.  I kind of drifted in and out reading that.

Why didn't you mention the advertisement? At least you remembered her. Men become invisible to younger women at 50 unless they have an aura of wealth.

Pretty sure mentioning the advertisement would save you a whole lot of pain. Are you expecting them to remember every item of sale and their pricepoint as advertised?

It's reasonable to have a sense of entitlement when a retailer advertises a special as that's often what may well have drew you in. I would have got straight to the point rather than ***** foot around it and bludgeon them,,,,,,,so to speak with the media advertisement. In the event they fail to honour , generally dropping the shoulders Like the Indian rubber man , and slinkerimg out of the place without saying another word says everything
