I went to Gadzooks (does anyone remember that store!?) with a pocket full of cash one day back when that store was more "alternative."
Anyway. I went in, hadn't touched a thing and one of the employees came up and said, "Don't unfold anything unless you're going to buy it."
I was so pissed off I turned around and left. Other people had told me the same thing happened to them.
I never have been one to make a mess, my mom is super anal about that and taught me never to do that when I was growing up (she was a manager for express in the 80's and went to school for fashion merchandising. She's one of the good ones.)
...Then I got a job at Hollister.
Damn, wow. I can't even explain how much folding sucks.
Made it impossible for me to ever work in a clothing store again. I won't ever, ever do it.
