Blood in the water

Among the stores I don't intend to ever return to is now Nordstrom.

Not only are their prices outrageous, but their salespeople are more rabid than most car salesmen I've had the misfortune of meeting. They were like circling sharks, waiting for a new seal to wander bloodied and helpless into their department.

In the course of two minutes, four different sales associates came over to "help" me. Including an older woman who was a walking fashion disaster, wearing some sort of shawl that appeared to be fashioned from a dead dalmatian and reeking of too much perfume. In short, exactly the person I'd seek out when shopping for cologne or an attractive ensemble.

Total time in Nordstrom: four minutes. One to find my department, two to reach critical annoyance level, one to find the exit and leave.
