I was in one of the local SA this week, looking through the SC for cool tweeds. This couple walked past me browsing.
The woman grabbed a jacket and said "Oh my God!...look at this honey!"
I was thinking to myself, "Damn, what did I just miss out on?"
The woman continued, "Look it's an Evan Picone! For only $10, Can you believe it? Ten Dollars!"
The bought it....lol
Funny stuff! I don't know Evan Picone, but I'd assume it's utter crap
While we're story telling....
I was walking down the sidewalk this afternoon and an old woman (had to have been in her 80s) was walking towards me when she fell, face first. It was unbelievably painful to watch and I, along with a girl nearby, ran to her to help her. The lady was a bit embarrassed and said she was fine, but she had a hard time getting back up on her feet. I ask if she's sure that she's okay and she says "Oh yes!" and then I see blood coming from her lip and nose. I said "Well maybe you should see a doctor, you are bleeding." She goes "Blood?" and the girl said "yes, on your nose," and then her nose really started bleeding.
The only thing I had was my pocket square, white cotton and nothing expensive. I gave it to her to hold against her nose until she could go into a shop to the bathroom. She said "oh, you young people are so nice and that is such an elegant coat."
Anyway, I hope she was fine but I was furious at the worthless street vendor selling magazines that was arms length from her while she fell and was on the ground. All he did was stand there and watch, not even offered to help her. We glared at one another the entire time.
