Mega pet peeve: I went shopping for new winter wear today since my stuff has a few seasons on it and is showing wear and tear. I walk into the shop, get greeted, which is great and then... forgotten about. As someone who works in retail, I understand and appreciate that the staff does not want to hawk on someone, but on the other hand, they can't ignore someone either. I eventually manage to track down someone and have to put in effort to get the guy to give me some help. Part way through helping me find some pants, he stops whatever he's doing and wanders off to socialize with the rest of the staff. I really hate that. If you're not going to give me help when I need it, go find someone else to do your job.
