We're People Too!

Now that I've worked in retail for over a month I consider myself a first-class expert. Haha. Because of this, I find it necessary to share a few pieces of advice that I hope you'll take to heart. Please understand that some of these things I did in the past without a second thought so I'm not pointing fingers.

1. If you have just had a face-lift, please take a few days and rest (doctor's orders). Having severe bruising all over your neck and chin along with weird things poking out around your eyes is SCARY. We are way too close to Halloween for that.

2. If you put an item on hold and decide you don't want it that's fine. But please pick up the phone and let the store know you're no longer interested. Holding an item for you means no one else can buy it and if you have no intention of purchasing it for yourself we'd really love to sell it to someone else. Otherwise be very specific: "Only hold it for a few hours while I shop around" or "If I'm not back by 5p, go ahead and put it back out."

3. Do not bring your dog to shop with you. And if you do, do not dress it in clothes and push it around in a baby stroller. And if you have to do all of the above, please do not ask me to help you because my chances of keeping a straight face are pretty slim.

4. If you and your husband, or boyfriend, or ex-boyfriend, or complete stranger you met in Accessories need to fight, please do not do it next to the reduced-price handbags. Your pointing and accusations could put a customer's eye out as they shop for a great deal. (On a serious note--I can't tell you how many people literally fight in public! I had no idea! It's ridiculous--take it elsewhere.)

5. If you are over the age of 18, don't buy a Juicy handbag. Just don't.

6. If you really don't want to be bothered, stay away from stores where the employee is paid by commission only. We will leave you alone if you are mean to us but our job is to help you find the perfect handbag. That being said, when we simply say, "Hi, how are you?" it's a little frustrating when your reply is, "I'm just looking." That doesn't even make sense, silly!

Well there is my list. I realize 6 is a little strange but I couldn't think of 4 more and I didn't want to leave one out. So there you have it!

Tomorrow is our 2-year anniversary!! WOOHOO! :)

love this list..especially #3. ha! thanks for the great advice about forever21 jewlery! I will definately check it out!

#3 are you serious? I cannot believe that people do that. Dogs are animals, regardless of how adorable they are, they are NOT children! I thought most stores had policies that unless it is an aid dog, animals can't be brought into stores. Ridiculous! Thank you Paris Hilton for making people believe that animals are accessories. And HERE HERE to the Juicy comment. Ridiculous!

Happy anniversary! This post made me laugh.. esp the "how are you doing?" haha.. Awesome. And I HATE it when people fight in public that I'm with. I get super uncomfy. It's tacky. TACKY. Dogs? In a stroller? Awesome. In a funny crazy way.

Happy Anniversary!!!

Wait, so I shouldn't buy that big Juicy diaper bag?? ha. Definitely guilty of #6. But what if I really am "just looking" (aka getting ideas for Christmas, etc.)...is there something better to say?
Found the real Abercrombie, but sadly the tunic was sold out. poolife.
Happy anniversary!!!!
