Total humiliation in Matalan today.
They started a half price sale yesterday so I went in today for a browse. It couldn't have been a worse shop to embarrass myself in, my favourite bargain store of all places, I heart it, but it will never be the same now.
Here's how the story unfolded...
Strolling down an aisle, I almost bump into the store manager. He catches my eye with recognition, "Ah... hello madam, how are you today". Doh, embarrassment number 1, the store manager recognises me. (as I suspected, I do shop there too often).
Worse, he looks down, I'm holding a pair of tights and a frilly bra. Eek.
Worse still, we sidestep to move past each other, but, arrrgh... we sidestep the same way.
Worse still, we do it again.... and again... AND AGAIN, oh man, you can see where this is heading.
Even worser, not content with my already embarrassing situation, my mouth starts to operate before brain has had chance to communicate: "Shall we dance?" I say. CRINGE!
Please somebody shoot me!!!! I could of possibly got over the whole 'dancing with the store manager thing' if only I'd just left it there. Instead, I had to make it even worse, by making him feel even more awkward than he already did, he nervously giggles and moves away.
Why oh why can I not just go into a shop, and make a simple transaction?. It's not too much to ask is it?
BTW, random outfit post up top. Nothing to say about it to be honest.
Oh, and btw too, (I'm done with ps's) thank you all for your lovely comments yesterday, it meant a lot. And sozza that I made some of you cry, going all sentimental on ya! :-(
