1. Shopping itself
2. Being talked to while shopping
The latter is unforgivable. It is okay to approach and ask if I need help. I will politely decline and be on my way. You should retreat quietly.
Under no circumstances am I interested in your opinion on the item under scrutiny. It's not so much that I don't give a flying fuck about it but rather that I am all grown up and have been dressing myself for years. Successfullytoo.
Yes, I'm interested in whatever it is I am looking at or else I would not be looking at it in the first place (
If I bring my item of choice to the checkout, don't comment on its size, cut or its color. I picked this size because it fits. In no way do I want to purchase something that makes me look like a microwaved sausage nor am I buying a tent that makes my ass look the size of a small country. Same goes for the cut. It will most likely be flattering (see previous line) and yes, the color is great. Why would I buy this in light blue if I could have it in puke green?
That being said, please don't tell me it is lovely.
Lovely in shopping terms is the equivalent to "interesting" (slow head nod) in a boring conversation or "nice" (encouraging head nod) used to describe someone you can't stand.
In the context of shopping lovely is a non-word. Mmmkay?
So there you go. Rant over.
