I unfortunately am a very detailed person so I always take notice to people especially clothing, body language, and face/eyes. At the same time my brain was processing the environment and the first impression of this salesman I very quickly noticed his eyes. His eyes could not have been any blacker and once I noticed that I was having difficulty seeing any whites in his eyes I was speechless.

However on this night I couldn't even speak and was forced to turn around and walk away. I could only communicate by pointing to my wife so that he would know that he would be interacting with her and not me. After turning to walk away I quickly grabbed my sons hand and started walking around the store. I did notice that the conversation between the salesman and my wife was very short. His questions and comments seemed very emotionless. I could sense my wife trailing behind me and my son.
