    So true, lol.

    Also, its the 4th, lol.

    SB - what do you have against brand whores?

    also, i would say that the conclusion is that people have different ways of valuating things, both as stand alone items, and comparatively. to each their own, as long as in the end of the day kops are made and we as people can justify our irrational obsession with looking good.

    Let's hope this is an upgraded version of me. No more picnic attacks.

    I almost blew up on a Saks Fifth SA.
    Mrs. Noodles was looking for Birkenstock sandals so I went over to the Armani section to try on some suits. I really didnt want to be bothered but a SA zeroed in on me in seconds. I tried on a 40R and it was small and short. SA said Armani is coming out with slim fits. Then I tried a 42R and it still was too short. The jacket was not covering my flat arse. So I asked the SA if they had a L.

    He then said, "L is for someone who is 6'3" and over."

    To which I said, "Not necessarily. But a jacket is supposed to cover your seat.

    Then the SA got frustrated and asked me,"Says who?!"

    I just ignored him and started to walk away and he said,"Oh! You no want to buy?! You just play for fun?! You dont know suits!"

    I wud have chewed him out and called his supervisor but I just left cus I was too tired to deal with such nuance.

    Does that happen to anyone every, or is it a Noodle specific anomaly? Not even at Macys were the SAs such ignorant jackasses...

    I just have really interesting stuff happen here and there in my life.

    I find Macy's SAs much nicer. Same goes with NM.

    My first month back in the States, I'm going to troll SA's so hard. Keep in mind, I've never had that opportunity. Korean SA's are way too likely to immediately defer.

    The service level in Korea is awesome.

    I remember walking thru a big mall when they just opened in the morning and for some reason all the sales ladies lined the hall and bowed to me. I felt like the king.

    See, I fucking hate when people in the service sector bow to me. I really wish they wouldn't. Makes so uncomfortable.
