Barnes and Noble

I hate this place. Why? All those flippin' questions they ask just to buy a 6 dollar book. Yesterday, I bought Alice in Wonderland. Never read the book and thought, what the hey, something different. Price was 6 bucks. Here is the list of questions from the cashier:

  1. How are you today?
  2. Did you find everything OK?
  3. Do you have a membership?
  4. Would you like a membership? You will save 10% on this purchase
  5. The holidays are coming soon are you sure you do not want to become a member?
  6. Would you like to buy a Gift Card today?
  7. If you buy a gift card along with a membership you can get additional savings. Are you sure?
  8. Would you like to give me your email address so we can send you valuable coupons?
  9. Are you sure? The savings can be substantial
  10. Would you like a receipt?
  11. Just to let you know, you can come back with your receipt within 30 days if you change your mind about the membership. Are you sure you don't want a receipt?
  12. Would you like a bag?

The best part was after all this was done, she sighs and says "People just don't get the fact that this membership lasts for the whole year". Wow, did I ever blow it.

Mental note: Plan Book reading list better so I don't have to go to Barnes and Nobel again. Order through Amazon.
