The other day I went into one of my favorite places to shop for cosmetics and got stalked by a lady hawking neck cream. No kidding! At least I hope you are laughing about this with me! As I walked into the store, she was standing next to a display with this new miracle product that promises to get your neck wrinkles under control. She greeted me and then declared that this miracle cream was on sale for $20 off! She seemed very excited about this fabulous sale. I kind of remember thinking if it’s $20 off, how much does this stuff cost? But I smiled at her and told her thank you and went on about my business looking for the shampoo that I came in for. Not even 3 aisles down, she rounds the corner on the opposite side of me and begins her spiel once again about this miracle neck cream. I’m talking not even 3 minutes later! At this point I’m hoping that her memory is really bad and she just doesn’t remember talking to me 3 minutes earlier. Because it’s either that, or she desperately wanted to talk me into buying this cream because she thought I had hideous neck wrinkles!
I decided to give her the benefit of the doubt and go with the assumption that she was tired and forgot that she had just talked to me about this wrinkle stuff. I spoke to her in my very best, trying to be patient, pleasant voice, and told her thank you again and reminded her that we had just spoken. At least she had the decency to act embarrassed and move on. If she had continued with the sales pitch I think I may have gone home and had a serious look in my 8X magnifying mirror at my neck wondering if it was that bad. In truth, I did give it a little look – see when I got home and decided it wasn’t quite time to call on the plastic surgeon. Whew! Maybe the lady was just an over-zealous sales person? AND I know Cindy would have told me if I have neck issues!
On a side note, what do you think about this hairstyle?
