I'll get my Pretty Woman moment

Meet my cousin Amie.


My cousin is the total opposite of me; skinny, blond hair, blue eyed, beautiful, cheerleader, and popular with both men and women. I always joke with her that she received the good genes of the family.  It doesn't matter where we go together, she turns heads.

We went to a major chain clothing store that carried nothing over the size of extra small. Seriously, my one leg could fit in a pair of pants (and I doubt even that). There were probably 10 people working in said store and only one person made eye contact with me, asked if I needed help, and even offered a dressing room when I was carrying my cousin's clothes.  Surprisingly it was a male salesperson who would normally look the other way. The other salespeople would side step me and go directly to my cousin to ask if she needed anything. If I tried to make eye contact they would pretend to fold clothes.  If I asked for a different size or style they pretended not to hear me. 

It amazes me that people act like this to other human beings and all because I'm a fat chick who couldn't even think about wearing their name brand clothes (YET). One of these days I will go into this store and have my "Pretty Woman" moment.  I can't wait for the day!

I know precisely what you mean. My moment is going to be with my husbands family. They are all skinny like weeds. I always feel like a balloon next to them. Next time we go shopping I'll be able to wear the killer heels and walk for three hours and buy pants in teh same stoes as them, HA!

Don't let those people bother you! And that one nice salesman who treated you like a person! I think if that happened to me I wouldn't go back to the store even when I COULD wear their clothes.

Funny that you mention this because those people that sell crap in the middle of the mall they are the same way. Well at least the men are. I say just ignore them and move on.

I hate salespeople like that! I just found this blog, and you don't know me, but just want to throw some encouragement your way. Just take it one day at a time...

This is so true and it's so wrong. I have noticed after losing so much weight that people in stores began smiling and being more nice.... I am the same freakin' person... so why be nice to me now? Grrrrr...

BUT, we don't have to be like that, thankfully! :)
