wat do you mean by little ppl - people there are small in size? :bigeyes:

Or is it unlike those IT show, so crowded that you could hardly move? :bsmilie:

I guess there is hardly any great bargains to be found.:think:

The kid means

Little People

Literal (bad) translation of Chinese to English

小人

meaning

People who are narrow minded and with low-class character

He did not mean there were a few people in the exhibition.

I have decided not to buy from all these Mega fairs anymore. Service is poor and the squeezing with the crowd is not worth it.

Last time in Sep, I helped my friend buy Sony from xxxxx booth at level where it all starts. They bei "Song" to let me try the camera. Say "No testing". AND he is the SUPERVISOR! Stare at me some more.

Next time when trying out a camera, bring a BIG lens along, and tell them straight that the lousy lens they have can't test the camera, use yours lens.

I think it is more or less the same level of courtesy for both megatex/sitex and normal shopping.
most of the time the sales people bo chup and just stand far away until I want to pay $.

either way, cannot please 100% customers one.

If dont disturb and leave them alone to try the camera, there are those who say no service or even complain the sales are lazy. If everytime disturb when they are trying the camera, again the same thing except that rather then lazy will become irritating and so on.

As for why he paid attention....now its not unheard off for the kids to scout the camera first and then buy or wait for dad to buy for them. Nowadays, its quite possible for kids to be carrying $1000 note in their pockets to buy camera during IT Fairs.
