Sometimes this happened in spite of really wanting or needing something from them. It seems that when you ask for help their faces get all tight and they answer you with murmurs like you are really bothering them. But, really, why are you a shopkeeper if not to assist customers?

The attitude seems to be that people feel they are doing enough simply by being at work. What you do at work doesn't seem to matter, so long as you are there from eight to five you have earned you pay.
