This didn't happend to me at the first local lounge I went to and still go to to this day. They were so kind to me and I even told them I was a newbie and the guy literally spent 2 hours helping me out, and telling me what he thought were good cigars, cutters and lighters. I became a member because of their kindness even though their selection lacks IMO.
This other place however, didnt shoot me any attention. When I walked in they figured I was just some typical 22 year old kid. After I picked up a couple hundered dollars worth of cigars they definitely started treating me like a king. The only reason I still go there is because they have an incredible selection. They always throw in a couple nice cigars for free I matter how much I spend.
