So I was in Florida for the week. My friends and I walk into a Christian Audigier store. My friend is looking for a specific shirt. They have a whole wall, with cubbies filled with shirts. My friend asks for the shirt and the lady starts bitching on and on about it. Some of the things that she said were.

"Oh that shirt was stopped about 750 seasons ago"
"You have no chance of finding that shirt"
"If you actually do have a chance of finding that shirt chances are that it will be a fake"
"Go look on ebay"

My friend starts to leave the store, and me and my friend turn around and started to curse her out, how pissed off we were about this. Disrespectful people.

What are you doing in a Christian Audigier store to begin with?

I'm not even sure why I want to know, but how did she respond to the two of you cursing her out at the end of the episode?

None of the things you mention sound like "bitching on-and- on", and they certainly don't justify an outburst of cursing. At the very least, you should go back and apologize.

Even if she did treat you rudely, your moronic/juvenile response probably only confirmed her first impression of you. You did nothing but prove you were the dirtbags she probably thought you were. Good job.

A well-styled man has no need to be rude, even in response to rudeness. A thick skin, a delayed/well thought response, and a sense of humor all go a long way to make life more livable. Disregarding her remarks is certainly in order, flying right over them. Pleasantness is not weakness.

I dont really see where she was rude. Seems like she just gave you a bunch of answers that you didnt want to hear. Then your response to it was rediculous and PATHETIC.
