Just a quick lil story for your entertainment - or maybe pity - I'm not quite sure which.
I've become involved in Tarte cosmetics (thanks to Ruby!). The first tinted moisturizer I got is great, but just slightly darker than my normal skin color (but great for when I have a glowing tan - which happens so often). SOOO I decided to go into Henri Bendels yesterday to just get a lil bit lighter one. I was short on time, so I literally slow jogged right up to the counter, I was like "hi I have 12 and I think I need 10, sooooo can you just grab that I can pay and be on my way?!" The sales woman was annoying (had her once before) - insisted on testing things and finally wound up with the one that I told her I wanted from the beginning. So she goes to grab it, this is after she tried to push another type on me, but I stuck to my guns and then she convinced me that I was making the right choice. This is how the rest of the experience went…
Woman: Ohhh ummm yikes….soooo ummm…looks like we're out of 10, but are you sure you don’t want the other one??Me: Yah - I mean I think this kind just suits me best, so I guess I'll just have to get it somewhere else.
Woman: WELLLLLL we just got a shipment in this morning, so let me run downstairs really quick and see - I'm positive there will be some more in those boxes.
Me: Oh that's great- thanks.
**Cut to 10 minutes later**
Woman: (as she running at me through the store with 3 huge boxes) IT'S YOUR LUCKY DAY!!!
Me: Oh such great news!
**She then proceeds to take out this brush & powder concoction and goes to try it on me. **
Me: Umm I'm sorry I don’t really have time for this, can I just have the tinted moisturizer and I'll be on my way.
Woman: OHHH yah so about that - we didn't have it. BUT I totally think the other one is the best way to go anyway.
Me: (getting slightly more annoyed as the time passes and now questioning why I'm even here) OK YOUR WERE YELLING HOW IT WAS MY LUCKY DAY SO I FIGURED THAT YOU HAD IT. FINE JUST GIVE ME THE OTHER ONE. (oh and I've also been there for 0ver 20 minutes, so I'm getting hella angry now).
Woman: (scurries over to the drawer searching…searching…searching…) Oh shoot (in this pathetic meeke voice)…we're out of that one too.
Me: (say no words…look of death…storm out).
Happy almost Friday everyone!! I'm heading to Deep Creek Lake with some of my girlies!! Enjoy the weekends!! XOXO
