I need a couple of new pairs of running shorts. These do double-duty for when I actually go running, and are comfortable to work around the house. As I'm klutzy and get paint all over whatever I'm wearing, these need to be cheap also. So, Forever21 seems the best option, as they usually have racks of such clothes.
When I stop by today, of course, I can't find anything but teeny.tiny jean shorts. So I ask:
Me: Did you guys get rid of all of your sweat shorts?
Sales Girl: What?
Me: Do you not carry jogging shorts any more?
Sales Girl: Like, leggings?
Me: No, I'm looking for running shorts.
Sales Girl: **confused look**
Me: Like sweatpants, but shorts.
Sales Girl: **in snotty tone** Um, we don't sell sweatpants.
Me (the "in my head" version): What are you talking about? You have them all of the time. I have several pairs that I've purchased here before. And seriously - a condescending tone? You're a clerk. A CLERK AT FOREVER21!! **Huffy walk out of the store**
Me (real me): Um, thanks.
Isn't there some kind of interview that people have to go through to get hired?
