FAKE PLANTS n OVERSTAFFING

Post by pienmash » August 5, 2011, 12:38 pm

I was on the hunt for some fake plasic plants /shrubs for the front of the shop so called in Index , i nearly passed out when i saw the price crazeeeeeeeeee 3000 bt up for a small plant , i ended up having a drive in the country and digging up some real ones from the side of the road (not from someones garden) they look nice noe potted n out front of CC.

I have two pionts does anyone know of a smaller shop thats sells plastic plants realistic ones not daft colours etc as i aint no gardener and these real ones are sure to die off .??.

Also whilst in Index (i like the place btw) i noticed we were the only car in the carpark n the only noticable customers , its a huge place with numerous staff including a car park attendant , a door opener /greeter 3 staff on one till and loads more loitering with intent to do some work , i had to go to the bog and was fully expecting a person in there for massage or to clean me off ................ alas no .

How does this place survive , its beyond me , anyone have a clue as i would be interested to know their fiscal policy .

Jon . First your artificial plants. Not far from you on Watthana Rd on the opposite side to the Karin hotel is a large shop that has many. It lays back a bit so you might miss it .
Now more staff than customers .From my observations it is not just the one shop you mentioned. All along that strip the businesses from Home Pro, Outlet Mall right up to Home Mart all seem to have the same problem .I was in all three yesterday, actually looking for high pressure hose. Needless to say after endless consultation the end result was the same . Mai Mee, delivered with a rather boring expression on their faces .Maybe that's the problem . :lol: In the TV shop in Home Pro I was confronted by no less than 7 eager salemen who disappeared rather quickly when I said " Just looking" As for the economics of the situation. Apparently each manufacturer places and pays for a salesman of his products, which accounts for the hasty disappearance of the others when its obviously not their product your interested in .So the retailer has virtually no staffing costs. :-"
I eventually got the hose in a Chinese run tractor repair shop thanks to a tip from a charming young lady in Tool Pro . =D>
Ageing is a privilige denied to many .

Thanks TB , i did look for the shop on Wattanapong rd but couldnt see it , my real plants seem to be ok so far , time will tel , however i do need a nice fake one for inside the shop so will look again .

You have solved one of many mysterys that has plagued mash ref the over staffing issue ( in most places as you say) and to some extent this would explain the ususal "attitude " that meets you in such places .

Btw did you get a box for the hose ? ............ haha

Bought a dining table and chairs, and a computer desk from Index last week, The earliest they can be delivered is on the 12th August (as they have got to come from BKK). I also bought some kitchen units which will be delivered on the 28th August. They did say I could have the table which was on display, but I would have to wait about 3 or 4 days to have it delivered, as the driver was busy. Everywhere else I've bought stuff, the goods have nearly beaten me home.

Don't worry about taking care of real plants. Those laos girls hanging around come from the farm, they will surely take good care of them for you.

"Apparently each manufacturer places and pays for a salesman of his products, which accounts for the hasty disappearance of the others when its obviously not their product your interested in .So the retailer has virtually no staffing costs."

Which helps to explain why so many ?salespeople? try to steer you from the product you're looking at to another (theirs) on the shelf.

Wasn't it Rupert's grandfather, Rudyard who said, when it comes to western minds and eastern minds, "never the twain shall meet".

Are you familiar with the female anatomy Mr Mash,? I just ask because girls that I know, sit to perform the task, maybe it was one of those girls of indeterminate gender?

Now you know the "Thai" shop assistant trick Mash, I take it you will be on the phone to Walls, Mars, Nestle etc etc and there will be about 20 sales staff in CC next week. It's a right pain dealing with that current salesman you have ....... everytime you go in for a jar of Branston he tries to sell you a scunny rosette and claret & blue rattle. [-X

Thanks for sharing that with us Maaka , like myself you are honest about your past experiences and dont have a problem confronting what some would see as demons ,,,,,, now please lay on the couch sir , you will feel yourself drifting off into a deep sleeeeeeep after visiting your inner soul you will awake with a sore ringpiece and an empty wallet , alternatively you can come see me in CC for the same effect .......

Mash ,,,,,, i have a couch !! as well as sausage .
