The problem with being pretty well known is that you are pretty well known.
Many know that when I truly want to relax I go out sweater shopping. I could shop for sweaters for days and not come back with anything or come back loaded in just an hour.
I was shopping at one particular store...found the three perfect sweaters at the proper size and for not a bad price and strutted confidently to the clerk.
I handed her the merchandise and my credit card and she engaged in the usual conversation I have been accustomed to over the years. “How is the show...how is this-- how is that?”
She then asked if I wanted a gift receipt and I looked at her and responded that I didn’t since these were for me.
She looked at me...pondered her next remarks and said;
“You do realize these are women’s sweaters?”
I looked at her dumbfounded. Told her they came from the Men’s Department and she should check it out . I then went off my head bowed but not defeated that I could come out with three great sweaters again.
I was wrong.
Morale to the story:
Women have it easy when it comes to shopping for almost anything.
