Um, Charles, are you a little grumpy today?
But speaking of corporate directives, have you noticed the system at Nordstrom? When you pay for something, they WILL NOT simply hand you the bag over the counter. Every single time the sales associate will walk around the counter and make it like a bag presentation. It doesn’t matter if there’s a line of people behind you, it’s every register, every department.
So now I try to run interference and grab the bag before they can and it makes them CRAZY. Feel free to test this.
