It reminds me of this time my wife and I entered a furniture store and were then stalked across the giant showroom by an agent on commission. We used all the walls, staging areas, and furniture as picks. We even doubled-back to avoid the guy. We had already stated once that we were “just looking” but he caught up with us when we reached the threshold of intentionally avoiding him and told him again that we were “just looking”.
Because of that, we intentionally bought our dining room table somewhere else.
