I think it’s off. Because when I go shopping in a small boutique, I am often swarmed by seven salespeople who, fashion sense or no, are rarely able to sense what I like or might look good in, or to intuit that I already have sixteen camisoles to go “with that.” At one store in particular where I have bought things on occasion, there is one salesperson who is very attractive, sort of like if a certain “asthmatic” starlet were thirty and back at her fighting weight, makes me so uncomfortable I kind of hardly ever even go in there anymore. Attention salespeople: if the zipper is two and a half inches long? I will not wear it because I prefer my butt to remain on the inside of my pants.
Why aren’t people like this where I need them, like at the grocery store? Yes, I go armed with a list, but the grocery store is a place where I might be open to suggestion. Can I help you find something in a root vegetable? Maybe, can you recommend an easy ten-minute root vegetable-based meal?
