And we all know that toughness via the internet is a tad akin to beauty via the internet ... neither matches reality.

Yes, and I used to think I was Dorian Gray. Lately it's Dorian Graying.

But yes, yes, GradSchooler, I see the resemblence:

Ok understood. I find myself in an awkward spot here. I'm not sure why but that story got under my skin. I have been mistaken for an employee occasionally and normally a simple "I don't work here" settles any misunderstanding. If the person then acts like an ass after that , so be it. But the name calling, the continuation and escalation of any situation like that bugged the hell out of me. It's as if he was calling the guy out and looking for a problem. And to be honest, if it was me I would have a problem with it. Tough guy? Nope, not at all. Don't have to be. A guy that's just going to stand there and let someone call him an asshole etc? That ain't me either. My job for the last 20 years had me handling people like this almost on a regular basis. So shame on me for coming off like an itoughguy. Mr. Soprano? That cracked me up too. Peace Now lets get back to our regularly scheduled program. Bobby A PS Leave me alone now or I'm calling the cops. : )

I know...

Since I have moved to the south-east of England to do night shifts on a terminal standards have dropped...

I will see what I can do....

I saw him fight in Edmonton many years ago during his comeback.

You want to talk about tough guys? I've trained with and fought a lot of seriously talented and tough fighters in my life, but George Foreman has to be the single scariest man I've ever seen in person. And I was just watching him from my seat in the audience.

I can never remember whether I'm taking about George Forman or Frazier.

I ran both the men's dept and shoe department at Brooks Brothers for a few years, and heard many stories similar to those in this thread. Some of my all time faves:

1. A customer returning four made-to-measure suits that were 22 years old.

2. Old ladies routinely bringing in the unopened but years-old and yellowed shirts and underwear of their deceased husbands (this we did no questions asked)

3. "These shoes (shell) wore out in only one year---I was led to believe they would last much longer." "That's odd, with proper care, they normally last many years. Tell me, how often do you wear them in your rotation?" "Oh, I wear them every day."

4. Customer returns what appear to be "elf shoes". I complete the return, but mention that shoe trees are a great way to help shoes keep their shape. "But I do use them!" Right.....

5. "These pants are poor quality." They are obviously at least 25 years old. "Sir, I will gladly offer you an exchange. Please understand these pants, while very well made, will not last forever." "Well I think they should last forever."

6. Customers attempted to return at least 5-6 fitted, tailored and worn tuxedos (complete with accessories AND shoes) every January 2. Reason for each return: "It didn't fit"

7. A customer trying to return a Spring '95 sportcoat in Fall '94. (It was stolen from a photo shoot) "It was a gift."

8. Whenever a guy would angrily insist he was a 34 waist when he was really a 38, even when we showed him the measuring tape. (instead of arguing, we'd tear the label off so he couldn't see it)

9. We barred all women from the fitting area because they shot down so many sales. They would all make that same annoying skeptical face and say the same thing every time. "I'm not sure I like it. But if you REALLY want it...."

10. Blood stained, piss stained, shit stained clothing. I'm not kidding.
