I called into a Sam Ash near here. It was during the day and as far as I could see empty apart from a few staff. A young guy helped me out with the guitar I was looking for and set me up at an amp. An older sales guy found a 2nd hand similar model to try. All good! Curiously, the older guy then sat on the other side of the amps only a few feet away, plugged in and played loudly and continuously while I’m checking out the two guitars. He didn’t seem to be doing anything in particular and it went on and on. It made it almost impossible to hear the guitars I was trying. This was so weird. After a long time I eventually mentioned it to the younger guy and he stopped. Was it: 1. Just some oblivious guy? ... it didn’t seem like that because he seemed quite switched on to the potential sale and brought out the other guitar. 2. Some strange way of trying to put some “vibe” in the empty store? 3. Something else selling related? I’ve no idea.
