Sales Pressure, Materialism, SarcasmEntertainment Value:
During a huge sale at Nordstrom®, Brianna** found herself constantly accosted by commission-hungry salespeople as she browsed. Moments after Brianna politely declined assistance from the 5th salesperson in 2 minutes' time, a saleswoman within earshot spotted her armful of baby clothes and asked, "Have you been helped?" Brianna said with a smile, "You're about the 10th person to ask me that!" The saleswoman snapped, "Well, we're here to help." Exasperated, Brianna explained, "It's just hard to shop when I'm asked that every few seconds." "Well," retorted the saleswoman, "Maybe everyone's asking because you look like you need to get help!"

Brianna sereptitiously browsing towards the exit with an armload of baby clothes? No wonder so many tried to help stop her! And, Brianna collecting baby clothes rather than her regular size? Obviously needs help. Who does Brianna think she is? [Her flakey cousin Brian?]

previously anonymous: I doubt Brianna was taking the five-finger discount. However, if she wasn't shopping for a baby, I'd say purchasing clothes that small probably means she's a midget or does indeed need help.

joan: I think Brianna was only caught in a fashion faux pas!
