Damn Kiosk's - December 9, 2009, 03:00 PM

Ok it's that time of year again where present's are abundant and joy is in the air. But how in the hell can I enjoy the holiday's when I'm getting hassled every 2 seconds by a freaking kiosk...it's like gypsyville ever where I go.

My friends and I realized this and came up with some interesting ideas on how to get back at these ppl. My favorite is as follows:

You walk by a kiosk and some foreigner says some shit you you. You stop, look at them, put your ipod head phones on and say "sorry I can't hear you," then casually walk away!

If you got some other methods post um! Kiosk stories...post um! Anything to add to my arsonel will be great!

I just walk by with a scowl on my face. Pissed off people aren't easily swayed by a sales pitch anyways. HA!

Aggressive merchandising is for flea-markets. If I wanna look at your crap I will. I don't need you offering me a head massage w/ this contraption shaped like a spider, heated beanbag neck warmer, sea salt skin exfoliator, or fake-ass hair extensions.

I'd expect it from Springfield Mall, but Tysons needs to put their foot down on that crap. Next thing you know every other store/kiosk is gonna be a gold/silver ghetto jewelry exchange or cell phone accessory shop.

I've been known to give a simple but firm, "No thanks" to whatever they've offered me. The pushy ones will follow up with some question like, "Certainly you want to have clean hands, right?" I just keep up with the "No thanks" as if I didn't understand them.

Homeless guy begging for money, "Do you have any change?"

"No thanks."

I like the idea of a homeless approach to kiosks. When they say something just reply "Sorry I dont have any change"

Yea Fair Oaks was where this whole post came from. Tyson's has gotten bad too and I agree they need to relax...I mean I get that they are paid on commission and all but there is a difference between assisting ppl and pushing them.

if you can't handle kiosks at a mall, don't ever go shopping in any 3rd world country

it's simple ignore them if you aren't interested, no need to say anything or explain yourself
