Pencil You In For Self-Service

, , , , , | Working | March 29, 2019

(I am trying to update my wardrobe, so I go to various stores to see what styles they have. I go to a department store where I am unfamiliar with the layout. I go to a female employee who is putting away clothing from the fitting rooms in the misses section.)

Me: “Hi. Where would I find pencil skirts? If you could please point me in the right direction, I’d appreciate it.”

Employee: “Pencil skirts… Hmm, men’s or women’s?”

Me: “Um, women’s.”

Employee: “I don’t think they make those for women. I know what you need.” *leaves for a minute and then comes back* “This is what you’re asking for.”

Me: “That’s a pair of men’s swim trunks. No, thanks. I’ll look for it by myself.”

(I left, shaking my head, while she was grumbling about how customers are not appreciative of her finding things that they asked for.)
