In addition to those inconsiderate individuals on elevators... What about those people who get to the top of the escalator and then stop to have a look around before stepping off.

Luvs - this works: Thank you so much, and I know you are working really hard, but right now I don't think I need your product, but I appreciate your time and I wish you the best of luck with your job. Have a nice evening.

I say it all the time.

It doesn't help that I also work with a lot of idiots. When I'm outside of work, I try to relax but...I can't. After a couple of beers I'm usually ok though.

Luvs, sometimes the French appellations are hard to pronounce, but I'm sure you never say "Merlot" with the "T" sound, or "Pinot" with the "T" sound either.
