Stating the obvious

Things not to do if you work in a lingerie shop.

1. Take a hangered item out of a customer's hand while saying with a sneer, "That's definitely not your size."

2. Gasp and make a face of horror when a client lifts her shirt slightly to show salesclerk person how high up a bathing suit bottom must go to cover up some traces of childbearing.

Of course, none of this happened to me or anything.

I'm just saying.

Number 3 that should not happen in a lingerie shop. . .the 19 year old sales clerk telling someone who has a 5 month old baby at home that they don't carry maternity lingerie (No, this did not happen to me, but it did happen to a friend of mine)

May I direct your attention to the Maternity Bra Purchasing Incident of 1993?

beth - that's run of the mill here, you can only get maternity lingerie at maternity stores or department stores.

dear karma, i've had just about enough of this whole -what-comes-around-goes-around-reap-what-you-sow-thing.

I understand that, but my friend was not pregnant - her baby was 5 months old - the 19 year old sales girl just thought she looked pregnant.

Nicole said...

oh Beth - I totally missed that, I just figured she meant nursing bras and stuff like that; oh man that is horrible.
