chris had the oddest thing happen to him this weekend. he was shopping for a blazer to wear to a christmas party, and went to a major department store. (i won't say which one as to not get anyone in trouble.) (because i'm sure the ceos of all the major department stores read our blog.) (and probably president obama, too...why not?)
anyway, chris was shopping and a salesman was sort of following him around, asking if he needed help, showing a lot of interest in chris. chris picked out a very fancy navy velvet blazer and tried it on. when he came out of the dressing room, the salesman was right there, with a dress shirt in his hands. he told chris that the shirt would go very nicely with the blazer and that chris should buy it all.
chris is one who is easily persuaded when it comes to clothes shopping. all he needs is one person to tell him he looks handsome and he buys it regardless of the price. however, being so close to christmas, chris did look at the price tag and saw that the blazer was $250, and the shirt was $53. so, he hesitated...and the salesman said, "oh don't worry, it's on sale". chris didn't see a sale tag, but decided to check the price.
they both went to the register, where the saleman proceeded to ring up the two items. he was all hush hush and told chris that the two items together would be $75. yes, $303 worth of items for $75. chris started to argue that that can't be correct and the salesman shh-ed him and said, "no, it looks so nice on you, you buy it. but make sure you like it, because you can't return it".
confused, chris paid for the items and left the store. he still isn't quite sure what happened, or why the salesman gave him such a good deal, but i will tell you this...he sure looked handsome in his new blazer!
