Thus far…

October 20, 2010

Things I have learned from working in an intimate wear store for the past two and a half months:

1.  It is difficult to stack thong panties neatly.

2. Women who are considering surgical breast augmentation should first find out the upper size limit for the cute bras.  It’s not really that big.

3. Little kids and underwear stores do not mix well.

4. A man in an intimate wear store will usually either follow his woman around closely so there’s no confusion as to why he’s in there, or he’ll find a chair as near the front of the store as possible and sit there and fidget.

5.  Shapewear is an instrument of torment, both for the wearer, and for the purveyor.

6.  The cash register’s name is “Hal”.  I am sure of it.

7.  Slender women will poke at the teeniest bulge and make it clear that they are seeing a huge wad of jiggling fat where there’s barely a bump to be seen.

8.  Most women really have no idea when a bra fits them well.

9. Listening to the same CD all day for weeks/months on end is not good for one’s mental health.

10. The holidays are good because that’s when the red merchandise comes flooding in.  I like red.

11. Clothing made from bamboo is heavenly.

12. The only thing worse than working in an undie store and having sense of humor of a 12 year old is working in an undie store with someone else who also has the sense of humor of a 12 year old.  There will invariably be snorting.

    I’m laughing my butt off. Oh my gosh…it’s a good thing I don’t work there with you or we would NOT get a thing done for all the snorting and snickering! You would have me rolling on the floor all day long!

    Just catching up on your blogging a bit today! love you!!
