I’ll Come Back And Get Them Five Years Ago

, , , , | Working | October 31, 2017

(I’ve decided to purchase some skincare products from a well-known retailer. I ask the woman at the counter to help me pick the best products for my skin type, and she has me sit in a chair while she demonstrates what products will be best for me.)

Worker: “And this is our under-eye cream. It’s great at reducing puffiness and dark circles.”

Me: “Oh, really? Well, I was only planning on getting the cleanser.”

Worker: “Are you sure? You have really dark circles under your eyes. I mean, they’re probably the worst I’ve ever seen. Let me show you how much better you’ll look with this cream.”

Me: “Sure, go ahead.”

(She proceeds to apply the cream, and then holds up a mirror for me to see.)

Worker: “See how much better you look?”

Me: “Not really. I don’t see a difference.”

Worker: “Well, trust me; you look a lot better. And you might think that it’s not a big deal, but those dark circles are going to be a big problem once you turn twenty-five.”

Me: “Twenty-five?”

Worker: “Yeah.”

Me: “Oh. Well, I’m thirty. So, I’ll just be getting the cleanser set.”
