A little while ago I submitted a story about this lady who threw a fit about my dress and lemme tell you there has been an update…
We were really fucking busy today and I’m in the middle of trying to verify a deposit so I can take it to the bank and she comes up to me in my space and says that she wants to apologize and “your very beautiful and I didn’t mean it as an insult” and some how getting more insulting as she kept talking. She bitched about how when she called corporate no one picked up and made it seem like I should be grateful she didn’t get to bitch about my (MANAGER APPROVED) dress. She went on about how smart her son was and how “he wasn’t sexualizing you because he was breast fed and all 100% organic and you know those hormones they put in food” at that point I stopped listening because she’s one of THOSE people who think genetically modified food will lead to cancer and that their kid is so special and perfect and shames other people for their choices.
I just reminded her that I’m a college educated woman and she cannot control what I or anyone else wears but she can control her reaction and teach her son to react appropriately and I left shortly after that to drop off the deposit.
I hope she never comes in again. Or the only times she comes in is where I’m drop dead gorgeous so she can only steam and bitch that I’m wearing clothes that look good on me. It took me far to long to become comfortable with my body and I am not letting anyone tell me what I can and can’t wear anymore. (And anyone else who has a vague dress code like “business casual,” don’t let anyone tell you your clothes are inappropriate because of your body shape. Especially my fellow tall girls in skirts and dresses. Your clothes aren’t inappropriate, their comments are inappropriate.)
Honeycrisp Blossom never knew an Apple Family without Rarity - the littlest Apple was crawling and toddling behind Rarity constantly as a baby because she's sweet, smells pretty & had a soothing lullaby voice and when she's a kid Rarity teaches her how to knit, brushes her hair, dresses her up & helps her garden even knowing that enthusiastic little kids will always equal dirt everywhere but Honey presenting her with a thank you bouquet of flowers & just her happiness overall is worth it.
