Hey Everybody! How’s it going? Hope you all are awesomely well! A bit of a strange shopping experience story for you all today! I had go out and purchase a new blender, as the one we had for more than 30 years, finally bit the dust and decided it did’t feel like playing fair anymore! Oh well, thems the breaks, I guess! I decided to go to a Canadian Tire that is fairly close to my home and pick up a replacement, and so I did. I get there, search for the aisle where the blenders and other kitchen appliances are, and scan the shelves for a blender that would be the right fit for my home and lifestyle, really. While I’m scanning the shelves this employee at this particular Canadian Tire approaches me and asks if I’m planning on buying a blender. If I’m in the blender aisle, what do you think I’m there for?! I’m just saying. I say yes, then he immediately goes into this sales pitch. I’m not sure if he was a manager of sorts at this particular Canadian Tire location, as he wasn’t wearing the typical uniform. The typical Canadian Tire uniform, at least from what I saw consists of a black polo with the Canadian Tire logo, black pants, and black shoes. The employee that approached me, had on a grey dress shirt, with a Canadian Tire logo, and what looked like a name patch, although I didn’t catch a good glimpse of it, unfortunately. So, he goes into this sales pitch and hands me this credit card looking envelope. I suppose it’s part of or entirely their reward program of sorts. He told all about how much I can save right then and there, if I just sign up right now! I respectfully said, no thank you. I appreciate it, but I’m good. The truth is, I’m not a fan of any big box store reward program and I don’t shop at any of them enough to warrant signing up for any of them, anyway. So, my default has always been, thanks but no thanks, not interested. I’m very much a straight ahead guy and shopper. What I mean is, I will go somewhere to pick up what I went in there to pick up. I go to the store, find the item, checkout, and go home. Very straight ahead, very simple. What made this trip to Canadian Tire creepy and weird was that after I said no thank you to the reward program to this employee, he kept popping up in every aisle I happened to be in. Whatever aisle I went to, there he was, and he kept staring a hole through me and not saying word. He’d flash the occasional smile, too. It was just really, really odd. Needless to say, I couldn’t wait to get out of there and get home, which I took care of shortly there after. That’s the story of my latest trip to Canadian Tire. It really weird, really creepy, at least that’s how I felt, and supremely awkward!
