He succumbed and I brought out a few suits for him to consider along with some shirts and ties, etc. He still wasn't keen on the idea of having to buy a new suit but his wife INSISTED that he does. After approximately 45 minutes, he finally decided on one that he liked"”along with a new shirt and new tie and all other accessories"”and he said to me, "I like THIS one. I'll take all this. Wrap it up." His wife then said, "Well, honey, you can't buy from the first store we go to. We should shop around some more." She then grabbed him by the arm and they both left. I never saw them again.
I predict a divorce in their future.
Given that he didn't buy from you, I'm hoping he finally put his foot down and bought nothing ... and then wore his old suit to her embarrassment.
This was my favorite of your stories. It seems to me that with the right editor you could have a book in your future ... Confessions of a Clothing Salesman. I want an autographed copy.
