Dear Atmosphere Outdoor Store in Coquitlam, BC:
A happy dad and his happy son spending a minute to play around on the “big rock” and sitting in the kayak WHICH IS ON THE FLOOR end up spending lots of money as happy dad pictures himself and his son spending lots of time in the great outdoors together. Kinda the whole point in visiting your store!
He had a blast hiding behind the curtains of sleeping bags, too.
But getting yelled at (enough to cause other patrons to stop and look) from a grumpy shoe sales girl who decided that my son sitting in that kayak was a threat to national security quickly turns the happy dad and happy kid into embarrassed, unhappy campers.
Next time we’ll go to MEC.
Jens & Erik
