I just politely nod and smile, while occasionally saying, “Ah.” Or, “Wow, I didn’t know that.” But I do listen to everything that they say, and I just come up with my own rationale or reasoning about why a certain statement or claim that they say, is wrong. I used to just block them out entirely, but by listening to what they have to say, it helps gauge me on common misconceptions and ideas that I can address here, on the blog. It further allows me to brainstorm new topics to discuss.
I mean sales associates are there because of it’s their job to appear confident and make a sale. I won’t hold it against them for being a bit over-exaggerated or misinformed. There’s no point of me getting up in their faces and telling them that they’re wrong because of so and so. Unfortunately, I can’t help everyone in the world. But at least I’ll start with those, like you fantastic readers, that seek help and knowledge. For some, ignorance is simply bliss.
What about you guys? And please elaborate. :)
