Memories Of A Shoe Seller: The Rich Bitch And The Dumbass

CrustyFrom: RHUer

My parents own a shoe store, and I have been helping out on weekends since I was 12. I am 27 now so you can imagine my hell. I have had many (bad, funny, unbelievable) experiences, but this weekend I have had two of the worst.

This lady asks how much is a boot; I tell her $28. She tells me in the other store it was $15. I tell her it would be more convenient for her to buy it there because it's cheaper.

Mind you I've been at this for so long, and since I am the owners daughter, when I do get frustrated I do say something in the nicest possible way and with a smile.

This sets her off, she tells me that I don't have to have an attitude and that she has a Mercedes Benz, and she has a mansion and that she could buy the whole store because she has that much money.

I then ask her, "Then why are you arguing over $30?"

Her eyes bulge out, her face turns bright red, and I think that if my mom was not there to pull me back she would have punched me. This is one of many stories in MY hell.


Dumbass 2This other one is kinda funny now. We sell wholesale and retail this lady comes in:

Lady: How much?

Me: $12

Lady: How much for wholesale?

Me: $9

She then proceeds to ask for 12 pairs of shoes. It takes about an hour and a half of my time, pulling them out and making sure she likes them because she was very picky. I have them in bags ready to go, we go to the cashier, and she hands me a 10 dollar bill. I look at her and at the bill not understanding.

Me: it's going to be $108

Lady: Oh I thought you said $9

I was dumbfounded: she thought it was going to be $9 for 12 pairs of shoes! I just stared at her.

She gives me 2 more dollars and takes one out of the bags and says "ok I'll just take this one." And walks out.




Let us serenade your first dumbass:

"Oh lord won't you buy me a Mercedes Benz.
My friends all drive Porsches, I must make amends.
Worked hard all my lifetime, no help from my friends.
So oh lord won't you buy me a Mercedes Benz."

Bitch Boy
