[Volume 7 Issue 1, #1295]
一般超市促銷員都會好熱情, 大力推銷之余仲會猛叫顧客試食.. 前日就遇到一個例外, 中年婦人手上捧住一盤sample, 企定定就咁一塊接一塊放入自己個口.. 當佢發現我睇住佢之後, 居然有氣冇力咁堆個盤埋嚟, 愛理不理咁問我「試唔試下??」.. 嘩, 個樣唔開胃到哩, 都唔知邊位顧客會想試食囉~~ @.@"
promoters at supermarkets are generally enthusiastic, they happily welcome people to try while promoting their products.. however i just met an exception the other day, a middle-aged lady taking a plate on her hand, standing still and keep pushing the samples one by one into her own mouth.. when she noticed i was looking at her, she pushed the plate to me hastily and with a poker face she said "try??".. OMG, i really wonder who will ever try those samples under such an unappetizing "culture shock"~~ @.@"

    1. i dunno lah, can be two possibilities:
      1) too nice until she also want to eat
      2) not nice at all so that she needs to finish it
      haha!! :D

  3. Frankly, I wouldn't go for this promoter because she doesn't have any "visitor". Just stand there and "hit the flies" (dǎ cāngyíng). Must be the food not nice

    1. yeah, i normally don't go for food sampling lah, unless those are something very special and imported and looks expensive one lah, haha~~ :D

  4. I seldom have chance to taste free food.... because I never encountered any promoter who is good at promoting the product. Some are so stingy, I feel that when I walk pass them, they would just turn away and ignore my presence.

    Hellow, aren't they suppose to push the food in front of me? And then get me to buy at least one?

  11. One way you can look at it - it's a testament of how good the product is. Promoter also cannot resist eating! LOL

    1. LOL! Just like charity beginning at home, food promotion must also begin with the promoters to prove to customers that the food is good, if not great. Oops!

      Delete
    2. that could be one of the reason lah, but also can be the other way round.. so not nice till she needs to finish the stock by herself, huhuhu!! but anyway, let's see things optimistically right?? ok, that's a testament, that's a testament!! :D

  17. Thirdly, she didn't want her boss to say she was lazy to promote the food when the food left too much.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. yeah, but that would mean the food isn't really that nice right??

      Delete
  18. Fourth, if she finished the sample food earlier, she could leave for home earlier or other partime job ma!
