This is what really happens in a Verizon store, according to a store
veteran

Have you ever wondered what your phone salesperson is really thinking  
and feeling? You may be surprised.

By Chris Matyszczyk

I have an unreasonable, perhaps demented, fascination with the gadget  
sales process.

I wrote about itfor some years over at CNET, and now that I've been
promoted to ZDNet, you surely can't expect me to change overnight, can
you? (Though I promise to try.)

I've generally found salespeople to be either a touch indifferent or a  
little forthright. Sometimes, even both.
