Went into a shop recently. I got an email notification that the sale items were an extra 50% off that day. So I walk in and browse the new arrivals, and the lady walks up to me and asks, “Are you looking for something in particular, or are you needing a whole new wardrobe?”
Several things ran through my mind at once. One, do I look like I need a whole new wardrobe? Really? Two, what kind of person goes into a store to buy a whole new wardrobe? That’s not me being a smart ass, that’s me genuinely curious. I could never afford to do that. Three, how nice would it be to just walk into a shop and buy a whole new wardrobe, complete with fully crafted outfits. And finally, four, bless you for thinking that I can afford to just go in and buy a whole new wardrobe! Freelance artist here – just point me to that extra 50% off sale section.
I answered, “No. Just having a look around.” Yeah, for that sale section.
