He went to Jared and got disappointed
Dear Jared, The Gallera of Jewelry,
My first visit to your store yesterday, May 10th 2009, at Casa Paloma Shopping Center in Chandler, AZ was absolutely disappointing.
I arrived at the store about 1:30pm with an ESQ watch that needed battery replacement. Although the store is practically empty (5 customers including myself), the sales representative did not want to replace the battery then. Instead he wanted me to leave the watch for two days or go else where.
And elsewhere I went.
Keep in mind; this is not the first watch I owned. In the past, I have observed repairmen replaced watch batteries within minutes, certainly not "two days"!
My recent experience lead me to think this particular sales representative did not care about his action and how it would affect Jared's reputation either, therefore why is he still employed?
I would suggest an addendum to your over-hyped jiggle of "he went to Jared":
"and got disappointed".
Update: May 14, 2009 -
Watch case wrench = $7.50 (including shipping from Micro-tools)
Type 371 battery = $4.31 (including tax at local Walgreens)
Never have to deal with Jared, The Galleria of Jewelry = PRICELESS!
