  • It started badly.

    As I entered this fancy brand store, a slender and over-produced young man scanned my entire body in seconds, while mechanically saying "May I help you, ma'am". His face showed no interest in being of any help, though, a clear indication that I had just failed his examination. "No, thank you, I'm just looking around".

    But then I found something that looked almost like what I had in mind, so Slendy showed me the way to a changing room. There was a pair of high-heel shoes on the floor. They looked new, so I figured they were the store's.

    I find it particularly hellish to get into a tiny changing room, surrounded by mirrors and with that shower of light casting shadows everywhere. A clever store would have a changing room so pleasant and with such a good light design, that every customer should feel pretty, no matter her body shape. Anyway, I'm struggling with the wrong size dress already halfway through my failed body, when a woman opens the curtain and says. "Oh, sorry!" She was clearly not sorry, for she opened it a second time and said "Would you pass me those shoes?" With my arms trapped in the stupid dress around the head and my whole body exposed, I just kicked the shoes so they would fly away under the curtain.
    The woman said: "YOU are SO rude!

    I didn't buy anything.
