ok... so i'm at work just now.
bout 2 hours ago (quarter to 11), this really tall guy with massive rocked out hair walks in, looking for a suitcase for his wife.
He looks at one and asks how much it is, and I say "it's quite expensive... £119"...
so he looks around at all the cases on offer, i talk him thru the different ranges, and decides he's gonna stick with the £119 one.
I run it through the till, have him pay, take off the sale tags, etc etc...
He then shakes my hand and says "thanks very much, appreciate it" and leaves the shop.
It's about 5 to 11 by this point and as he leaves, my work colleague, Jo, walks in.
Jo: "did you just sell him that case?"
me: "yeah... why?"
Jo: "Do you know who that was???"
me: "uh... no"
Jo: "That was Brian May from Queen!"
Soooo.... i've spent the last 2 hours kicking myself.
And despite shaking his hand, I told a multi-millionaire that £119 was EXPENSIVE! *feels even more of a twat*
Basically, so I don't feel like the only plonker on Earth, has anyone else been in a situation like this - where you've unknowingly been involved with a "big deal" or missed the perfect chance because you're oblivious of it?
edit: yeah i posted it twice, cos i made a spelling error in the thread name the first time and didn't know how to change it... oh how the stupidity levels are rising today.
