...about items being out of stock. Unless in a shop where the assistant or I can check stock levels electronically, I never take their word for it when something I want is not on the shelves. Happened again today. I just kept asking different assistants until one finally bothered to go to the stockroom to check and I got what I wanted. One even said that if it's not on the shelf then it's out of stock. Why can't people do their job properly? Rant over.
