So embarasing!!

Tuesday, September 14, 2010

I went into Hollister to see if I could purchase some sweat pants for the changing season. I was on a search for extra-large for a more comfortable fit. I looked and I looked. None to be found, so I asked a girl who worked there who looked at me kind-of crazy. She said she wasnt sure so she asked someone else whom I watched laugh at her. She came back to me and said they must not have any left. So, highly upset at the lack of effort to find out, I went to talk to a manager. A girl that looked 16 came to me and said the manager had just been assaulted and that she would help me.

I asked her the question and she got someone to help me. The guy went to the back to search fr some sweat-pants in an XL. After about 15 minutes, he came back with about 4 different colors in a large. I explained to him that I asked for a XL. He told me they didnt have any and that I might want to try the men sizes. I said no thanks and left.

I was so SAD to hear that. Not because I was insulted, it was kinda funny. I have gotten to the point that someone would suggest men sizes???? WOW....

I know an XL in Hollister's small clothes isn't bad, but its just the concept....

    We look to be about the same size. Because I'm bootylicious, people think I wear meds, but I understand wanting a comfortable fit. Darn these deceptive sizes! Convinced I'm not losing the tush, I'll have to go with other brands quite often.
To heck with those rude salespeople in that store!

    Moorecentury, that's EXACTLY what I thought! But I looked on the website, and they don't. They only go up to large.

    AKAFIT, you are soo right!! I almost went there, but I was out of town and the trip was perfect!! I didnt want to ruin my own trip! I just had to kind of brush it off! And thank you both! No one ever believes me when I tell them what size I wear!! But I know it so it bothers me!

    #1, you look amazing for an XL. #2, it is a shame that you received such poor customer service, and #3 clothes these days are made to fit TWIGGY. It is really ridiculous. However, I am glad that you kept your sense of humor about the situation. I would have probably gone on a serious MBW (Mad Black Woman) rampage. emoticon
