My wife and I were out at one of our favorite local bicycle shops on the quest for the perfect bicycle helmet for my wife’s commute. While perusing the vast selection, several salespeople approached us offering help. But since we were not ready for help, we politely declined.
As each turned to leave, they mentioned that there was more sizes and colors available in the basement stock area that they would be happy to retrieve for us.
After trying on dozens of helmets, the choice was narrowed down to one. Unfortunately, the desired helmet in the size and the color we wanted was not on the shelf. Now instead of approaching us, we went in search of a salesperson. We quickly found one.
