I was trying to buy 3 tickets to get on a boat. That is all.
me) Hi, can I buy tickets here?
About 10 seconds of silence.
me) Where can I buy tickets?
guy) At the outside ticket counter
me) Where is that?
guy) at the mill
me) where is the mill?
guy) the building that says mill.
me) seriously? That is your answer?
(as I walked away ... and he lost 60 bucks)
This would be a funny story ... if I did not see this type of thing all the time.
If you have something for sale. Make it easy to buy.
It is really that simple.
In his case ... A finger in the direction I needed to go.
Perhaps a sign ... a map ... some advertising and he
would have made him an extra 60 bucks for the day.
How much money do you lose because of an over complicated system?
