Finally I hear that retailers are feeling the pinch these days their sales are getting soft they're blaming it on that payroll -- -- it's hitting consumers hard maybe.
But I think there's a bigger culprit it's them that's right then.
Their stores their workers they're getting pushed too pushy particularly the way -- bad for you at the register.
It's somebody I've noticed submitted on -- happened to me all the time that few times -- do goes up just the other day.
I step into the register indicates your -- asked about like to open a store count -- politely say no.
The -- precedes it -- and I'd say 10% off my first purchase I still say no thanks anyway.
He is hearing none of it 10% is a lot of money -- continues.
And you get pass the -- back with -- every additional purchase thank you again I say but now.
Now he gives me this incredulous look as if to say who -- in -- Euro lost.
A -- -- up my stuff that while he's shaking his head reminds me that I just paid ten dollars more than I had to -- I had as I quickly leave the store.
To -- -- same thing on this stuff I'm not at the register and made the mistake of asking for help while wandering a store I'll.

Oh you'll find all our printer cartridges because where I was in the next not.
We're having a cell on all of them end end end if you sign up for our card you get an additional 20% off -- decline.
I'm only -- about a couple cartridges not opening up my own office supplies stores so I say thank you very much.

That's the it looks I'd dance to the haircut place next -- The stylus or whenever she calls herself for the twenty bucks -- thing.
Hands -- -- card with the numbers one through ten stamped across the front kids and she punches the number one.
And tells me I get a free -- -- all time numbers appliance but seeing as I'm visiting.
And likely won't be back anytime soon and certainly not this particular -- -- shopping center ever.
I just take the currency effects it's actually -- me very very tense this whole trying -- I suspect I'm not a long I think more than a few shoppers are just like me they just want to be left the low.
That's why retail sales of falling hard is because we don't want the damn car.
But they don't get this.
Which is why I said -- I do to just punch this.
