I WENT to carry out my regular shop last week at the local shopping complex only to be pounced on like an eagle on a lamb by a promo marketing sales representative.
These people are pushy, overbearing and manipulative, and are taking over our car parks. They are telemarketers in the flesh and rarely take no for an answer.
I was lucky enough to escape their clutches unscathed (thanks to my firm and direct husband at my side).
However, I know there are many shoppers, particularly women, who are boycotting this complex to avoid the car park harassment and the possibility of being manipulated into spending hundreds of dollars.
I urge managers of shopping complexes that are subject to these pests to remove these people from their car parks.
We are not in Bali; we do not wish to be harassed every time we go out to buy, buy, buy from these people.
We want to shop in peace.
