FYI If you go into a shop and someone working there says "I just LOVE your bag/shoes/jeans!" they are LYING. Anyone who has worked in fashion retail for more than 5 minutes knows that saying you like someone's fucking bore-oton handbag is just a way of "breaking the ice" and "increasing customer confidence" so they will "buy heaps of stuff from you".
Today while fucking around at my job, aka not doing my job, aka wandering aimlessly in chain stores until it's time for me to sign out is my job, I had two different girls in this shop "CITE" pull the exact same routine on me, 2 minutes apart. It went:
Girl 1 & 2: Hi!
Me: Uh hi.
Girl 1 & 2: I just LOVE your jeans.
Me: Uh thanks.
Girl 1 & 2: They look really good.
Girl 1 & 2: So did you wanna buy heaps of stuff?
I just felt like shoving my work badge at them and being all I KNOW, THIS IS EMBARRASSING FOR ME AND FOR YOU. Now I think something is wrong with my jeans, cause whenever I've done the ol' compliment/buy shit routine, I choose something I really hate about that person's outfit, just to practise my lying skills (the most important thing I own). I don't bother complimenting anyone anymore, I just make up my sales figures. I love lying.
In conclusion, TRUST NO-ONE.
Love Clare xoxo
