Undercover

Friday, 9 April 2010

Dear “Major Sports Equipment Store,”

My disguise worked! Going undercover as a slightly overweight, frumpy mom was the perfect way to avoid getting any attention from your staff. Not a single one of them was able to discern the athlete within. And so I was able to enter and exit completely undetected. And without making a purchase either.

It goes without saying that each and every person who enters your store deserves some notice. Beyond a cheery “hello,” many folks could really use a hand in determining which is the best choice for their use. And looks really can be deceiving. The last time I decided to get moving? I trained for AND completed a marathon. Requiring two new pairs of running shoes, new sports undergarments, new socks, and a gazillion packs of Gu.

Who knows HOW much you lost today.

Sincerely,
Frume Sarah

    What a great post! My husband and I were profoundly ignored at a local H….. dealership a few years ago, and we left after about ten minutes. Their loss. We bought a H…. from another dealer.

    Great post. I’ve been ignored, too. I guess they don’t want our money.
