Chapter 71 A Total Fail
“What’s the point of just talking about strategies on paper? Any shop manager has strong sales skills. Ms. Steele, I hope you won’t hold back and will show is what you’ve got.”
Janet’s gaze was filled with mockery.
It’s obvious she just graduated as a designer. So what if she’s studied a few more years than me? What’s the big deal?
Christina put down the work files in her hands. “All right, then you better watch closely.”
“We’ll be sure to watch with our eyes wide open,” Janet said, making a show of opening her eyes wide.
Right as she finished speaking, a fashionably-dressed woman walked into the store.
Christina walked over and said, “Hello, miss. Please feel free to browse around.”
A faint but meaningful smile hung on the woman’s lips. Though she nodded slightly, she didn’t say anything.
Christina kept smiling and followed behind her.
The salespersons at the checkout counter looked at the woman with mixed emotions as they all recognized her.
“Janet, there’s no need for this,” Penny whispered in warning.
That woman was Janet’s close friend. She also worked in sales, though not in the same company.
It was obvious that Janet deliberately called that woman over to make things difficult for Christina.
“What do you mean by that? Ms. Steele is going to demonstrate sales techniques for us; just watch!”
Janet wanted everyone to watch Christina embarrass herself. Let’s see if she still dares to act smug in front of us after tasting defeat!
“Miss, I noticed you’ve been looking at the clothing section. These are all the latest styles in our store,” Christina said with a smile.
The woman still didn’t respond. From her disdainful gaze, it seemed she was looking down on those
“What size do you usually wear, miss?” Christina had very good temperament and maintained proper politeness no matter how indifferent the other party was.
After all, she knew very well that excessive enthusiasm could be off-putting.
The woman’s eyes narrowed slightly, but she remained silent.
“I see that you have a slim and attractive figure. You should be a size S, right?” Christina continued the
Smiling slightly, the woman couldn’t help but say, “Not at all. I wear a size M.”

“You have a slender figure, miss, which makes you look quite thin. Why don’t you take a look at this slim-fit dress? It’s perfect for women with your body shape. Shall I grab a size M for you?” Christina said with a smile.
The woman was somewhat moved by the compliment and hesitated for a moment before saying, “All right then.”
I’ll just give it a try but not buy anything. No matter what, I have to make things as difficult as possible for her!
Christina quickly brought the dress to the dressing room for the woman.
In no time, the woman changed into the new dress and walked out. The moment she opened the door, she found a pair of high heels displayed in front of her.
“Only by trying the dress together with the heels can we see the results.”
The woman’s smile grew even more pronounced as it was her first time encountering such an attentive salesperson.
Putting on the high heels, she stood in front of the mirror and admired her own beauty.
“Miss, you look very elegant in this style of clothing. It will definitely turn heads when you walk down the street,” Christina praised.
The woman’s heart soared with the compliment, but her face remained calm as she casually expressed her true feelings, “I also think it looks quite nice!”
Seeing the woman’s delighted expression, Christina took the opportunity to continue, “I apologize, miss. I made a mistake earlier. This outfit is actually from the previous collection, so there’s a discount. available now. Would you like to consider it?”
The young woman looked at the dress she was wearing with satisfaction and immediately nodded. “Yes, I’ll take it.”
Christina smiled slightly and said, “All right.”
As she turned around, the woman grabbed her hand, Christina looked at her with a puzzled expression.
“Please pack the shoes as well,” the woman said shyly, hot daring to look at the cashier counter.
Christina nodded with a smile. “There’s an extra discount if you buy the shoes as well. Miss, you really know how to shop!”
After swiping her card to pay, the woman happily walked out with her spoils.
“Ms. Steele, you’re amazing!” said one of the sales assistants with stars in their eyes.
“I’m totally convinced!” Penny’s heart had been trembling with fear just a moment ago.
Janet had an awful expression, as if someone had slapped her across the face. She pursed her lips and remained silent.
Regardless, Christina chose to be low-key. “It’s nothing. As long as you put your heart into it, you can

definitely accomplish great things.”
After going through the test, the sales assistants gained more respect for Christina, which also made
them work even harder.
Behind the shop was a food street, and Janet took advantage of her lunch break to step out and make a phone call.
“Jenny, you idiot! I asked you to give her a hard time, not to actually buy something!”
Jenny replied impatiently, “How is this my fault? Your shop manager is just too good. She managed to touch my heart with just a few words.”
“Can she force you if you don’t want to buy? You’re so stupid! Besides, what’s so great about her?” Janet was so angry that her veins were throbbing on both sides of her head, and her fury could be felt even. through the phone.
With a scoff, Jenny said, “Can you please have a better attitude? You should learn from the good qualities of such an excellent shop manager! For example, I learned quite a few sales techniques just now! If you don’t want to work there anymore, just let me know, and I’ll go learn from her.”
With that, Jenny ended the call.
Janet was so angry that she almost threw her phone. Her plan to embarrass Christina had backfired, and it was infuriating!
When she turned around, she was completely taken aback.
Christina had appeared behind her at some point. At that moment, the former’s face was expressionless as she exuded a sense of seriousness.
Janet lowered her head, feeling a bit guilty inside.
She really enjoyed working at Radiant Corporation. If she were to be fired, it would be difficult to find another job with such great benefits.
Since every employee had a work history, those who had been fired would not have the opportunity to join other branches either.
“Ms. Steele… I didn’t do it on purpose…” From challenging Christina to arranging for someone to come in and make things difficult for her, it was quite obvious that Janet had done it intentionally.
Christina’s eyes gleamed as she replied, “There’s no need to hide the truth. I knew that customer was in cahoots with you the moment she walked in.”
Janet gasped, then exclaimed in surprise, “So you know Jenny!”
As it turned out, she was the one who’d been played!
Christina chuckled lightly. “No, it’s because she glanced at you as soon as she walked in.
Janet’s face turned red instantly, and she couldn’t help but admire Christina’s keen observation skills. “Ms. Steele, you have a sharp eye. Could you please not fire me? I really like this job.”.
She became anxious, regretting the foolish thing she had just done and fearing retaliation.

For Christina to fire her was just a matter of saying a few words.
Christina’s face took on a more composed expression. “I came here to work, not to become entangled in a feud with you. I’ve observed your work abilities, and you are indeed more capable than the others. From now on, please focus all your attention on your work, and don’t let me down.”
A tremble went through Janet, and she felt her defenses crumbling.
Christina appeared to be of a similar age to her, yet the former’s ability to handle situations was several times greater than Janet’s.
Finally accepting Christina as her superior, Janet wholeheartedly agreed and expressed her gratitude. “Thank you. Ms. Steele. I will definitely work hard.”
“Hurry back to work, then.”
After work, Christina went to a convenience store near her condominium to buy some daily necessities.
Pushing open the glass door, she walked out carrying a heavy bag, only to bump into a figure approaching her head-on.
The unexpected collision caused her to stumble before clumsily lunging forward.
