I don't even talk to salespeople! I look at them with a bad, really bad face. I buy only things I need and not things someone wants me to buy. But I understand that's their job, so they do everything to sell you something. I hate fake Fe at social meetings. "You look awesome" Don't tell stupid lies! I know what you're thinking: she's fat and looks older than her age. I understand when salespeople do it for money, but I hate when someone do it just to seem nice.
PS: What you're saying about Italy is true.
