Boo for the surprise being ruined..and yay for you getting a ring soon!

I was in people’s the other day with my sister (who is going to be getting engaged soon). I wanted her to point out rings she liked so I could help my futur BIL when he goes shopping. She was drawn to the Vera Wang collection too, the lady who was working told us they were pricey and walked us over to the “promise rings”.. I guess we don’t look like we have money to spend? lol We are also tattoed, and I am pretty sure the lady was staring at my sister’s neck tattoo the whole time… Maybe there’s a corporate memo? “Beware, people with tattoos will steal and have $99 budgets”. ha ha.

How rude of her! I could  understand the Michelle-miscommunication slip-up, but I’ve never heard of a salesperson snapping at someone to keep their hands above the counter.

I’ve seen a pained look that salespeople have tried to hide when I brought an expensive piece a little closer to the exit than was their comfort (and I immediately brought it away from there on seeing that, of course), I’ve had them try to subtly keep track of all their merch they pulled out just in case FI or I would try to pocket one (by stacking “rejects” immediately on their finger, things like that), all of which I thought was entirely appropriate considering the situation. But all of them tried to conceal their concerns as much as possible and present a gracious and welcoming vibe.

Snapping at me about anything would make me angry, but snapping at me to basically “keep my hands where they could see them”? I’d be livid!!!

Please do report this person to the management of the store.

@sillygoat:  OH FUCK NO! That is completely unacceptable and I would go even above the store managers head and call their corporate office. Not only was she fucking condesending but she ruined what is supoosed to be a joyous and exciting time! I say call and complain!!!

Also CONGRATS! Try not to let this spoil your engagement! You get to marry the man of your dreams YAY!

@sillygoat:  If the management is any good, that saleslady won’t be employed there when he picks it up. Or she’ll be lucky and still be there, and bending-over-backwards gracious.

Are you kidding me uggggg. How rude and unprofessional! 

BUT on a second note how exciting ! I wish it would have been a different experience for you though (shopping around) but I’m sure it will be a wonderful surprise when he does pop the question.

That is AWFUl!!  I agree with everyone else…you need to complain.  And seeing that it’s a jewelry store, there should be security footage they can review to support your complaints.  At the VERY least, they should offer your FI a credit on your ring or a generous gift card (although I don’t know if you want to keep shopping there!).  Congrats on your upcoming engagement and that amazing dress you scored today!  Beautiful!
