She just sat there and scowled at me, as if I was a jerk for being in her way. Like it was my fault for standing there.
I kept my cool, didn't react to the fact that she'd just nearly ruined a $600 pair of shoes (that I bought new, at retail, because I just got sick of waiting to find a pair in a thrift)
1) NEVER PAY RETAIL AGAIN
2) Keep a change of shoes in the car for stops like this
3) Remove tie bars, ties, cufflinks, watches etc before getting elbow deep in a rack full of pee stained clothes
BTW- if anybody happens to come across a Georg Jenson tie bar in an Austin area Goodwill, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let me know.
Ouch. I feel you man, that's rough. That's part of the reason why I thrift in my beat up old jacket, t-shirts, light wash jeans and sneakers.
I probably would have flipped shit on the fatty as well. But I'd find it a bit weird yelling "YOU RUINED MY $600 SHOES!" at a thrift store.
EDIT - To praise Nataku's awesome haul! Mega thumbs up man!
