Every Friday deserves good laughs. Here are some recent
WTF moments I had when out on shopping adventures.
wait? which is the front?
A local dress shop was having a sale, thinking a new darling gown would be a fun new find. We headed in to see what we could find. After several worthy contestants were plucked from the racks, a hung in a well lite mirrored dressing room, it was time to try them on. Although dress after dress, nothing felt right. Losing spirit, I tried on my last pick. I half-open the door quickly quietly, saying, " yep, nope, this isn't the one," As we were looking over, agreeing that it just seemed a little funny on me, a woman walks by and informs us that I have the dress on backward. Rosy red color starts to burn on my cheeks as I, the fashionista, owner, and operator of her whole retail store, put a dress on backward. I found comfort in knowing that, apparently, it happens to many women. Even so, I couldn't believe I put it on backward. Once she helped rotate the dress, it looked quite a bit better. I didn't purchase it, but there is no denying it was quite a grand dress now filled with a hilarious moment of confusion.
Disarray loses a sale
Sales or clearance rack are everywhere. In my opinion, it is rare not to encounter one on a shopping trip. A few weeks ago, we were out shopping when I came across this dashing little white and gold embroidered Calvin Klein dress. It was absolutely beautiful, and even though it wasn't the right size when I tried it on,
I fell in love with it.
It was the kind of immediate love that I couldn't just accept it wasn't meant to be and walk away from. So I took my find as asked if there were any in my size in another location. I was cheerfully greeted with a yes and a few locations to choose from; they were, however, all out of state. My next question was to then as if I could have the dress shipped to my house. Confused and disheartened, I was told no. The reason was that the company keeps its clearance section so cluttered, so disorganized, and in such chaos. That they did not want to have an employee use up their valuable time scrounging through there clearance section looking for it. I can not lie to you about how distorted my face got when I was explained why I couldn't buy the dress. At this company, what I was asking for used to be typical practice. One that they would push upon your time and time again in order to make a sale. So when I was told no, you can't, our retail space is in such disarray that we are willing to lose the sale to save an employee from having to scavenge for it, I was baffled. I have never had a retail experience like that, nor have I ever been met with a reply like that, it was a rather hilariously frustrating encounter.
WTF moments happen all of the time for me, here are a few that
happened during my shopping adventures.
