While this situation made me laugh, I am not quite sure that everyone would react this way. I was in Macy's yesterday returning some clothes and I decided that I wanted to check out the sunglasses. I have been wanting a new pair for awhile, but not really sure on which ones I like so I thought I would go and try some on. As I approached the counter, the sales person started selling to me right away. She was pretty direct and kept trying to find me a pair of sunglasses. I would try on a pair and say "I kind-of like these." and she would say "No, those don't work!" She continued to tell me what she liked best, even if it was not what I liked. Anyway, the pushiness was getting a little overbearing so I decided that it was time to leave. I was in a small area and was trying to get out of that department. Maybe I made a face as I was leaving, I am not quite sure, but she looked me square in the face and said "You look like you are about to pop!" I have not heard that since I was pregnant with the twins and I am quite sure that my belly is not that big. After her comment, I am sure my expression was perplexing so she then covered up her remark with "Well, you look really constipated." I gasped with a laugh because I was so taken back by the fact it was coming out of her mouth. Honestly, it was funny to me and I smiled at her and said "You are quite the sales person." I walked out of Macy's laughing in amazement. I could have taken this personally, but instead I laughed and called my friend Darla to tell her about it. She got a good laugh out of it as well so I decided to share it. Couple of things...
1. No, I am not constipated! :)
2. Not everyone is cut out for sales.
3. Maybe I should pay more attention to my facial expressions? I am not quite sure how to work on that since it happens without even thinking. Any suggestions on how not to look constipated?
