Flirtin' it up

Now I'm sure more of you learned at some point that selling was a game of "seduction" between the employee and the customer but how many of you actually use it to make your sales? Have you ever turned the flirting factor up to get a sale? I'm not talking about asking someone out or anything (although, kudos to you!) but a little flirting usually doesn't hurt your sale.

I had this kid (22, in case someone was wondering) come in this afternoon and I started chatting him up and then my manager showed him a free phone (Dumb dumb...) and I was definitely working on the guy to get a more expensive phone, and the extended waranty.

"I want to add insurance because my phone is already acting up"

I'm sorry but I cant add insurance if there are any issues with the phone HOWEVER if the phone is acting up and it's a manufacturer issue I'd be happy to get you to our warranty department and they will rectify the issue.

I HAVE 30 DAYS TO ADD INSURANCE I WANT TO ADD INSURANCE!!!!!

Before adding insurance to anyone's phone I am required to get confirmation there is nothing wrong with the phone...I get incentives for adding so I wish I could... if it's a software issue warranty will help you... blah blah

CAN I SPEAK TO SOMEONE ELSE BECAUSE YOU'RE RETARDED!!!

wow... hold please

conveyed all this to supv. Supv said "She called you retarded?! I'm going to force feed her my (paraphrased) legume satchel!!!"

Totally wrong for this but who cares...

Working in retail has somewhat affected how I look at certain types of customers and how they get dealt with.

For example:
Customer: You speaka da esaponal? (thick spanish accent)
Me: No how can I help you ?
Customer: speaka espanol?
Me: Nonone does... Paying bill?
Customer: (customer rattles on in spanish)
Me: (after typing in to google translate what do they need help with)
CustomerSurprisedh yes bill
Me: Number?
Customer: Jose sapata
Me: Number???
Customer: *shrugs*
Me: Sad (a few minutes go by of more spanish I dont understand) Your bill is $425. Cash or card?
Customer: What?! i thought i pay $80 dollares (accent mostly gone by this point)
Me: I thought you didnt speak English sir?? Very Happy Very Happy

I don't feel empathy for you

when you yell at me that you have been with us for 15+ years, and your service has always been crappy, always. I cannot relate to you, nor understand you. Who would continue to pay for a service that sucks for 15 years?

have you ever ventured into the lounge?

i know you shop talk types; devoted employees, kiss asses, rule followers...


you should try the lounge next time youre bored out of youre mind while talking to a 70 something wanting to know how to make the font larger.

you might just enjoy it.

you might also meet a significant other or random hook-up, for it happens often in the lounge.
