Do you get irritated with some vendors on the market or just on the street whenever you pass by them and they would ask you "What do you need?, What are you looking for?, What's that sir/maam?" and etc.

No, not really...they're just doing their jobs. They just want to be approchable so buyers won't hesitate to ask for something. You will get more irritated if you are buying something and they're not giving you attention.

Well for me you just have to understand them because they are making money from doing it. I think if they just sit there and wait for customers to come to them they might get little or no sales at all. I think by making themselves annoying to some it may catch them some sales if they find the right person to deal with.

I don't have to. That's their business anyway and we should understand it because that's their source of daily expenses. And most of all for their sibling to go to school. We should understand them for being very talkative, Very Makulet, Walang hiya. Because if they wont do that They cant have money for the next day.

the mall where i work at has chicken vendors at the side of it and i always get asked if i will buy chicken or not, i just say no... and when you get at the entrance of the mall, the cellphone vendors or we call it here snipers will ask you if you'll buy a unit, i just nod at them and get on my way... i don't get irritated as long as they don't insist their products to me..

Actually I am not irritated with sidewalk vendors approaching me and asking what I need because I know they are struggling to make money, but what irritated me most are the sales ladies/tenants in the shopping mall when they began tailing me and asked what I am looking and etcetera. Gosh!I am super irritated with them because I cannot freely picked the one I liked or contemplate what to buy because they're very "makulit", sometimes I would just glare them and gave a firing look.hehe

At first you will get irritated but when you think about it that they just want to earn a living in a legitimate way I'll understand them. That's their way to get attention to customers otherwise they can't sell their goods. Just ignore them if you don't have interest on their product.

I don't get irritated when vendors try to promote their goods to me, but what i don't like is when you're not even showing any interest, and they act as if you are already going to buy something. Like when you just pass by their stall and they are like, "yes ma'am, take your pick, this one looks good on you," etc. etc. I know it doesn't really harm me in any way, and yet it still irks me.

Most of the time I don't. Once I see them coming, I'd say I'm just looking around and will ask them if I need something. I think I'd like that a vendor or salesperson would approach me than wanting to ask for something but they're not there.
