I should have stuck to my promise.
I was on the hunt for a shirt today to wear to The Pool tonight for this party we are going to. I was walking around the outlets at The Walk in AC and I was having NO LUCK. So, as I passed Lane Bryant I just peeked in the window. What did I see staring back at me but this friggen ADORABLE zebra print halter top ...sooo I made an exception and went in the store. I didn't even know what their smallest size was but I knew that I needed the smallest size in there for sure. I flipped through the rack with this shirt that I wanted so bad and the smallest I could find was a 16/18 - too big.
As I was about to leave, I decided to check the size on the manikin - 14/16 - So I undressed the manikin. lol.
As I was doing so, some man walked up to me (a customer) and said.....
and I quote...
"Is this a store for big people or something??"
0_O <---my "are you serious" face
Did he just ask me that???!
So I calmly took a breath and responded to him tell him that yes, it was a store for larger women. He then asked me, "Well where can I get something for a petite woman??"
*Deep breath once again because at this point I was ready to let someone have it...aside from his question, I was hot and sweaty and carrying a 10lb bag around..and just plain old annoyed*
I firmly answered "I don't know. I have never been a petite woman" and turned away.
Well I ended up buying the shirt because it was super cute!! But I am going back to my vow to not shop in the "store for big people" as he would like to call it. Thank you, sir for reminding me of my promise to myself.
LOL anyway.. hope everyone is having a great day!!! I'm getting pretty tonight for a networking party at The Pool with my honey.
*P.S. I don't know how mothers go out every weekend and leave their children home.. I feel so bad that I have been away from my baby so much the last couple days for one reason or another! I can't wait to be back in my regular routine with my princess*
