“Sorry Miss, You can’t sit on the floor”

I spent the rainy afternoon at a large book store chain…..you know the one.  Got a few books and while my husband browsed the DVD aisle, I sat down on the floor in a back corner with my soon to be acquisitions……..
The cashier comes over to me and says sorry, we don’t allow sitting on the floor …………WT***** I have been sitting on the floor for years at this store……….
Makes you see why people are leaving stores and shopping strictly online………
My yearly membership should entitle me to some corner floor space, wouldn’t you say?
My husband asked if I wanted to pursue it with the manager……I just took my books, put one expensive one back, which I shall buy online, paid and left……pretty dismayed over how I was treated…….
Is this a new policy, so you sit at the cafe up front and buy a coffee or cupcake?………
THIS is why people are not paying store prices and shopping online, in pajamas, on their bed, on their sofa, or on any corner of their floor they wish………..
I am an author and VERY frequent book buyer.  In times when brick and mortar books shops are failing, customer appreciation and service should hold priority status.   I didn’t feel so appreciated this afternoon.   What was the harm in my sitting in the deserted DVD section, my husband was the only other patron in this section of the store, browsing through the books that had gotten heavy in my arms.
My books are ALL available online……buy one tonight while sitting wherever you so choose………..

thanks  🙂
