“When me and the SO were buying a new tv and on a separate occasion a laptop, I had a list of specs and things I wanted at minimum and things I didn't care for. The salesman kept speaking to my SO exclusively and trying to talk about the different products with him.

Eventually I went off by myself to find what I wanted went back to the salesman for a quote and to negotiate a better price and he would keep looking at my SO and trying to convince him what I wanted was wrong so I took the quote and found a different store who priced matched it.”
