I don't think she intended to be rude, but I felt she was, and she didn't seem to be fazed by me telling her that. It could be alot of things, but they sure seemed to act a bit different this morning, Anyhow I didn't intend to make it into a "cause celebre" just thought it would get some laughs. And I am very please with the service I recieved today at Centofani.
I am not sure that is really a bad thing. I can understand you not expecting it nor were you soliciting advice but I see this the same as a doctor telling you that you are too big. I personally think a suit looks good when a person is slimmer but a suit can mask a significant amount of weight. Look at Alec Baldwin. He is pretty fat/pudgy and his suits hide a lot of this. If a body builder went in they could also say they are too big as well. It just throws off the proportions.
You should not have taken it so harshly. Why did you lose weight recently? Is it because you yourself thought you were too big?
I know it is easier for us all to say lose weight. I know it is not that easy. But if you lost 60 pounds I bet you would be happier with your suits. Shit I think you would just be happier.
I apologize for making the assumptions in my post.
