I was at MAC with my mom Christmas shopping, and I made a list so I would remember the names of the ones I really wanted
I was disappointed that my favorite MUA wasn't there, instead were a bunch of old women I have never seen before. I wasn't really surprised, a lot of places pick up extra help during the holidays. I was looking through the e/s and a woman came over and asked if I needed help so I gave her my list so she could tell me which they had in/out of stock. She read them over, eye brows raised, and looked at me and was all [in a very superior tone, I might add] "You can't only
buy e/s. Besides, half
these shades don't even match
." I have my own collection of 20 or so at home so I kindly explained that I was "matching" to ones I currently owned. She narrowed her eyes at me and gave me a look like I was some kind of imbecile and went back to the list. "We don't carry this
shade anymore. Don't you have a current list
?" I got most of the names off the website so I didn't know what was still being carried and what not. I just nodded and said I didn't know and she gave me that patronizing look again. Then she tried to sell me all these products that I don't need/use, and when I said no thank you, she basically told me I was a fool who didn't know what I was doing. She told me to stick to my local drugstore and buy Maybelline because its easier for the "inexperienced." Then she handed me an e/s primer and told me I had
to buy it. I said no thanks because I use a different one. She questioned me about it until I would answer and I said I used UDPP. She raised her brows at me and sneered "Urban Decay?"
She shook her head in what I suppose was annoyance, and said she'd ring us up with what she finally deemed okay. We paid and she asked us to "please leave and make room for customers who actually know
what they are doing," and stalked off.
I was really surprised by this lady because the people at MAC are always so nice and helpful. Also, I've gotten compliments so I know I'm not 100% clueless. I don't know, she really just annoyed me.
Has this happened to any of you lately?
