I read this as the OP helping the customers find a couch for an hour, not searching for a specific one they already knew about but a particular kind of couch that fit their needs. Otherwise it would be much easier to find and obviously wouldn't take that long. The boss waited until they were set on a couch to swoop in and take credit for the sale. Fyl. It was incredibly unfair of your boss to do that, and it cheated you out of the commission you deserved for helping the customers.

Living rooms, bedrooms, dinettes, oh yeah! You can find 'em at the market we talkin' 'bout flea market! Montgomery's flea market it's just like, it's just like a mini-mall! FYL for working on commission though. Commission is EVIL.

WORLD'S DUMBEST PERFORMERS! too bad i_reply_with_lyrics doesn't watch enough truTV...the visual would be much better though...for all of you who don;t know what this refers to, just look up the montgomerey's flea market ad on youtube. It's. Just. Like. A mini-mall.

Well, if you couldn't sell it to them in an hour and he did it pretty quickly, I'm going to say he deserves the credit. Learn to be a good salesman, like Billy Mays!

Too soon indeed. Now let's make a Patrick Swayze joke... I'm drawing a blank. I would LOVE to be able to shout everything I say and get taken seriously... Also, truTV wins, in response to the comment above my first one. ^^^

but as a boss surely he's in charge of training as well.. which means he should have advised him of what to do or where to go and he'd know for next time. I personally would have called the wholesalers direct after 15 mins, but for all we know the wholesalers could have been in china.

So, here's how I'm seeing it. Those people come in, and they're asking for something. Then they have to wait for an HOUR for you to find it, and you still didn't? The boss probably cut in because he thought you'd lose the customers otherwise.

Actually, I highly doubt that's how it went down. Managers who work on commission too, they know who the big fish are.... you think they're dummies? The manager at my suit store did the exact same thing.

That's how I read it, too, and sadly how I've seen it go down quite a bit with friends who've worked for commission. The bosses pad their numbers by stealing commissions from their employees.
