Ben has been pestering me for the upgrade. A woman of my position now deserves something of higher class. What position? To me high class always means the wallet will get much lighter. But begrudgingly I eventually agreed.
There I was in Braun Buffel, Queensbay Mall for the next 2 hours. Picking and choosing.
- Some thing functional
- Something nice
- Nothing easy to scratch
- Nothing too boring
- Not to big
- Not too small.
- Not too trendy
- Not too dated
But sweet kind Noor was so nice. I felt bad having her to take out the same pieces so many times and kept asking for a new model only to change my mind.
Still she obliged with a smile. Making small chit chat with me and also giving me her input. Mind you she’s not the kind that sells everything to the customers. After bonding for an hour plus she kind of knew my taste and even pulled me back to sanity when I was considering a laud statement making magenta coloured piece.
Something sweet and feminine. Not too dull and slightly rough surface so scratches won’t be too obvious. Yes, scratches are inevitable on anything left with me. But I’m trying to curb that, trying.
But why Braun Buffel?
- How bout paying lower end for top quality.
- How bout not paying a bulk sum just for the brand.
- And how does free polishing service in any Braun Buffel outlet sounds?
Or in this case lower range for top quality and service.
After meeting Noor, I’m happy I made my choice. You see, when the sales person is actually so gracious and nice, it makes splurging all the less guilty. Yes, I’m clutching at straws here.
Now pardon me as I check periodically if there are any scratches on my new baby yet. Fingers crossed.
P/S: Have you ever splurged on something just because the sales person was so darn nice?
