deadly7, you have no idea what I had to put up with when I was working in menswear. I have no problem dealing with people who don't know things so long as they're willing to listen and learn. I love helping and educating and informing my customers about menswear.
But, needless to say, there will always be times when absolute moronic schmucks will walk in and they haven't even the ABSOLUTE SLIGHTEST SHRED OF COMMON SENSE OR INTELLIGENCE. These are the sort of people who prefer to remain ignorant and who don't want to listen. For me, it's not a matter of who's right and who's wrong.
No, it's not like that.
It's about informing them. The only problem is, though, they don't want to listen to us. They regard us as swindlers who are lying and saying anything just to get their money. It never occurs to them that we just might know someting about this business of menswear and that what we are telling them is the truth. The lady whose son wore a rope around his waist . . . did I force that suit on him? Did I let him buy it so that he'd look like a fool at his graduation? No, I didn't let him buy it. I WAS HONEST WITH HIM AND DID HIM A HUGE FAVOUR. If I didnt' care about what I did, then I'd have let him buy a frickin' size 50T for all I could have cared.
I have no patience or tolerance for people like that.
Of course, people like that are far and few in between. I can have hundreds of good and sensible and intelligent and REASONABLE people come in before I have to deal with a moronic imbecile who doesn't even know the difference between a button and a zipper.
Do you understand what I'm saying?
