Have you ever been shut down by a rude employee at a store? I was at Wal-Mart the other day and I had the idea to buy one of those star balloons they have above all of the clothing racks (in this particular store at least). It was going to be as part of a joke for somebody so we figured it wouldn't hurt to ask if we could have or buy one. The conversation went pretty much like this: Excuse me, you know all these star balloons you have everywhere? Yeah. Can we buy one? No. (annoyed) :shifteyes: If I had known it was going to be such a touchy subject I would have never asked. :lol: Seriously though, have you ever been shut down like this at a store?
