Brought my swedish friend to get a camera from a camera shop this afternoon. After all the usual sales tactics, my friend insisted that he wanted the Ixus 860IS.
Shop assistant says ok.... then says, the set does NOT come with battery and a new battery is $55. This was ridiulous (and I know I can get 3rd party batteries cheaper) so I said that it was ok we can take it without battery.
He goes to the "back" to get it.
Reappears saying we have to wait about 2 hours for it to arrive from People's Park. So I say that if I don't get the camera that we closed the deal on, I'll make a report.
He then displays a vulgar sign to us as we leave - using BOTH hands.
I'll be making a report against the shop tomorrow morning.
What a disappointment that my Swedish friends' last experience in Singapore was that.
I am so very very very tempted to display the shop's name but I will let the authorities take over from there. PM me if you want to know.
Just to warn all the bros and sis around. Be very careful....
