The Slice

He’d rather keep it strictly business

Carl Heldt wondered.

"When did companies start thinking it was OK to invade your privacy by allowing their employees to walk up to you and ask personal questions?

"The most common are 'How is your day going?' and 'Have any plans for the rest of the day?' The list goes on.

"How is any of that their business and how does it enhance your shopping experience?

"They always end their contact with you with 'Have a nice day.'

"I had a friend who would reply, 'Don't tell me how to live.'

"At first I thought he was a little rude but now I understand what he was saying."
