|Is it just me or do the rest of you get cheesed off with people trying to sell you stuff over the counter that you don't want...
I have just come back from Santander where they are forever trying to 'sell' you their credit card (you get a reasonable % back on fuel purchases). All I wanted was a mini statement, but you have to llisten to this diatribe about how stupid you are for not having their card (the elderly gentleman to my left was getting the same spiel). I wouldn't mind too much if I didn't get the same cr*p each time I go in (often from the same person)!
The other place I get this is the Post Office. I just want some letters weighed and posted, but they seem more intent on selling me top-ups for my mobile phone and other stuff I don't need/want. They'll do this regardless of the fact that the queue is out of the door for people wanting only what they came in for.
