    Default Harrasment from shop assistants!!!

    I have to get this off my chest. Yesterday I had a moment that I wish never happened. But its not my fault. But I have realised you have to have your wits, when you are shopping for the girlfriend.
    On previous times, I've got my girlfriend CDs or Vouchers, etc. as a present or xmas, birthdays.
    Yesterday I walked past a mens/womens store called Jeanswest in the city, and liked a summer dress that I thought she'd look great in, it was $100, but I was gladly willing to buy it, cause I knew she'd love it, and I'd love to see her in it.
    I was happy browsing through them, until out of the blue, a male staff assistant came right up to my face and said "That dress will really match the colour of your eyes". Now, the guy was gay, cause he was flaunting it. (I have no probs with gays) but I was trying to do the right thing, and taking my time. Would you call this harrasment? He never even asked me if I needed help. It was just in-your-face saracasim. I stood there staring at him, ready to punch the bastard, but decided to walk away.

    When I got out in the street, I noticed there was another Jeanswest up the road. I walked in there, and the same dress was there I liked. This time, it was a lady assistant and was very helpful. I told her about the guy, and what had happened. She said he was probably just joking, and I took it the wrong way.
    Thats not the point!!! I'm pissed off, cause its hard enough shopping for the girlfriend. Why should we cop saracasim from shop assistants? I bought the dress, but should of walked back to the other one, and gave the guy a punch in the face.
    Do you think I've let this guy off? ...and should I take it further?

    You COULD go to a sex shop, purchase a phallic toy of your choosing, go back to the store and say....'This would look great up your ass'. But that's just me. I like to have fun.

    It sounds like someone has just a bit of insecurity going on.

    Ohh, come on Mike, just because someone said that dress would look better on someone other than yourself, doesn't mean you should be jealous.
    Just go for it!

    I'm not jealous. Maybe a little catty, but not jealous. It can't be worse than when we both wore the same shoes to dinner a few years ago, can it?

    That lesbian was soooo wrong...the 3-way with the red head double d and her brunette girlfriend wasn't too shabby. Their tramp stamps were kind of sexy, but I am kind of partial to belly button rings and thongs.
    Just go for it!

    I've always found the best method is too keep your cool, lower your voice and keeping a gentle even tone, thank them for their interest and smile benevolently but inform with a little gravitas that they are perhaps receiving the wrong signals. Then you shoot them in the fucking head.
