Yesterday was a Joanna/Sharif shopping extravaganza. He tried on lots of clothes and shoes in several stores; bought a pair of jeans, three shirts, a belt, a snazzy leather jacket (for 33.33% of the original $300 price), and a pair of shoes; and ordered the same pair of shoes in another color. I bought some socks. And a shirt that I didn't bother to try on. Something . . . seems . . . unstereotypical . . .


Oh, I also bought a little part of my dad's father's day gift. It was originally priced $14.99, but had a sticker on it that said "Sale! $7.99!". I took it up to the register, and the guy scanned it, told me the total was $15 and change, scanned my credit card. I said "Really?" and pointed to the sticker. His response was that the sale "isn't even on" now. I indicated the sticker again. He called over the manager and said to him "She wants to buy this 50% off." What? Luckily for me, the manager wasn't stupid, and gave the guy a disbelieving look. He then took me to a different register and took care of me, very nicely, crediting my card for the amount that I was overcharged. Crisis averted, and I was able to be smiley and polite throughout.

Right now, it is lovely outside, and I'm going to go join my mother for a walk. Probably I will stop in Historic Ellicott City to pick up a coffee on my way.

Jeez, Joanna, you don't keep scrupulous track of whether the sales are on or not at that store? Are they supposed to alter the stickers or something just to let you know the latest sale information? Just because they work there and you don't?

You know, when you put it that way, it really seems like I was being unreasonable. I think I'll go back to the store, apologize to the guy, and demand that he take my seven dollars. I feel so foolish!
