Recently I was in a shop trying on a tee-shirt from May Day which isn’t too un-usual in itself, except for the fact I am kind of over changing rooms not having mirrors in them. This of course forces you to have to leave the safe confines of the changing room for the open air. Thinking I surely couldn’t look too bad in a tee-shirt, I ventured out and got literally assaulted by the lady from the other changing room about the fact I had to wait my turn for the mirror that we obviously had to share. Surely there was room for two to view I thought, but no.
The shop assistant looked very perplexed when she heard the lady going off at me and when I did venture to the counter with the tee-shirt, she did apologise quite profusely for the rude behaviour of the other shopper. I have to admit that I did talk back to her when she started telling me off. I kindly queried, why we couldn’t both share the mirror.
The outfit she was trying on, really didn’t suit her – but I wasn’t going there and the kind shop assistant did what any good retailer would expect, she told her how lovely she looked. I so couldn’t work in retail. I am way too honest for my own good. Did she buy the outfit – who knows?
Given my love of retail – there haven’t been too many such experiences, but you can see why internet shopping appeals. In the confines of your own home, you can try everything on, in your own time and just return what doesn’t fit. Sounds quite delightful really.
