mattress salespeople are the scum of earth

Posted on Thu, Sep 3, 2009 at 1:39 AM

Mattress shopping, grrr.... Why does it have to be so f-ing hard? Companies change the mattress names every couple of months, so I can't find reviews for the mattress I'm considering. All the stores carry the same mattresses, but with different names and fabrics, so I can't compare prices. The labels are deliberately lacking in information so I have to be led by some sleazy salesman when I just want to be able to read if it's plush or firm, coiled springs or not, and price (not that that means anything - hope nobody actually pays the sticker price!). And I hate the fact that the day before a sale the price can be x, but then on the day of the sale the price is y, and y ain't necessarily less than x. Fuck. Oh, and to the last salesman who offered me, and just me, "friends and family" pricing after talking to me for 2 minutes, I'm not that stupid and I'm not feeling special, just pissed off. I hate you all. And, my back really hurts in the morning, so I actually need a f-ing bed, not the bullshit.
