Friday shift

Late night shift on a Friday, a middle aged couple comes in. Wide-eyed and mouths open, they ask how new the business is. When I tell them we opened three years ago, they look even more stunned and ask each other how they could have missed us. This is not an unusual occurrence, we are a subtle store so not everyone knows about us. After a little browsing the woman asks me if pocket rockets are the most popular item we sell. "Okay", I think, "this lady knows a little bit about vibrators, awesome. Helping her may be a little smoother if I don't have to introduce her to every single item we sell."

Wrong assumption. I get to walk her through every single toy we own, answering all her itty bitty questions. Yay....

Okay, I know I am being over sensitive, but this woman bugged me. She constantly asked me, while holding up an item, if people "actually used this." I gotta tell you, common sense, if we are selling it, people use it. So yes, people use masturbation sleeves, yes people use glass toys, etc. I think what really annoyed me was that she kept using the excuse that she's "from a small town". She used this excuse like 10x in my interaction with her. Her husband even used it.

But how can being from a small town be an excuse when your buying vibrating anal beads?

  1. The very heart of your writing shilst sounding agreeable at first, did not settle very
    well with me personally after some time. Someplace within the paragraphs you were able
    to make me a believer but just for a while. I nevertheless have a problem with your leaps
    in assumptions and one would do well to fill in those breaks. In the event you actually
    can accomplish that, I will definitely end up being fascinated.
    Its such as you learn my thoughts! You seem to grasp so much approximately this,
    such as you wrote the ebook in it or something. I think that you simply can do
    with some% to force the massage house a bit, however other than that this is
    magnificent blog. An excellent read. I will certainly be back.
