Oh, local lingerie store.
You disappointed so hard. I had high hopes. Something high end and classy!
Unfortunately when I stepped inside my hopes were dashed. I was immediately greeted by a young woman with high heels way too old for her and eyelashes like angry caterpillars. The specifics are lost to me but our conversation went something like-
"Hi, I was looking for something particular, maybe you can help?"
Before I could give her any more specifics she cut me off saying "We don't really have anything you'd be interested in."
"I'm actually looking for something blue, it's for my anniversary and-"
"We definitely don't have anything you would be interested in."
I wasn't sure if they meant "huge titted like a dairy cow" or "wearing a rag on my head" but I soon figured it out, as the employees don't have inside voices. To answer the question they were asking each other as I left, what does a Muslim need with lingerie (and do I wear it under a burka)
it's part of my super secret Muslimah breeding program. And I wasn't even wearing a burka...I wasn't even wearing very modest pants. :\
If they were up on their stereotypes, they would know that (when we're allowed out of the house by our men and we're not being beaten or wrapped in bedsheets) Muslim girls can spend. We've got all that oil money, don't you know? Maybe because I don't have an accent. I sound like the nanny+ten years of Capri smoking. Sorry about that.
Whatever. I checked the website and the bras are ugly anyway.
Service is more weird than bad, really, but I'm a bit bored.
I was at the cinema the other day, and as I was walking in (after I'd got my ticket - for Valentine's Day - and was on my way to the screen) I passed an employee in the lobby, who didn't seem too busy (she was pretty much just standing there). On a whim, I turned to her and asked "Excuse me, but is Micmacs in English or French?"
"The film, Micmacs. Do you know if it's in English or French? I've never seen any indication that it's not in English, but none of that directors other films were, so-"
"Never heard of it."
Then she walked off. The film's been out since the 26th.of February, and while it's not the latest hollywood blockbuster, it's not exactly an indie film with no advertising or exposure. Since she works there, I don't think it was too unreasonable to expect her to have heard of it.
If anyone cares, I asked someone else upstairs, and Micmacs is in French, with English subs.
