Eventually i found in department store a pair of tanned stockings that would suit me took it to the till to pay. the woman looked at them then at me and said ‘these are stocking you know, you need a suspender belt’
im sorry are you sugesting perhaps i cant read or that im incapable of figuring out that stockings need a suspension device (although that does sounds womewhat industrial!)!
‘yes, i know’ i said.
‘We sell tights and holds up to you know and we sell the suspender belts too’ said the oh so helpfull shop assistant.
‘Yes i saw them’ I say trying desperatly to keep sarcasm from my voice and not beat her with my wallet, ‘I dont think any of your suspender belts are realy suitable, i have pleanty of well made ones at home.’
Finally she allows me to pay.
How utterly ridiculous is this? im trying to buy somthing and she attempts to talk me out of it. is it realy that unbeleivable that a young women wants stockings rather than tights? Shall I give up wearing stockings and start wearing hold ups? Comments welcome
