"....I bought those boots from the local place. brogue boots, krampton boots, monkey boots. I'm sure the dude would have taken £200 on the nose by why squeeze the little guy? Those would've cost me elsewhere so I'm quids in. had a chat with the old guy .. proper cockney geezer, recounting tales of when he was a mod, getting into debt to buy a pair of mohair trousers, etc. and when was the last time someone who sold you a pair of shoes shook your hand?? eye contact alone usually passes for excellent customer service skills nowadays.... he even recommended a local tailor. love it."
