The stiletto

Postby Apple » Tue Apr 26, 2011 1:25 pm

I went to an elegant shoe store today to try on some Sexy stilettos. We are going out for my birthday 8)
I noticed this woman was just placing back the shoe I wanted to try on,Image
so I tried it on and I found that the straps have all been stretched; the shoe was violated beyond belief. It was like a baby elephant just tried it on.

So I went to the shop sales girl and asked her if they have anymore in my size and she said
“Only what there is on the shelf as she was chewing gum” mind you this shoe was 236 dollars. :shock:
I explained to the salesgirl that the shoe was raped by a baby elephant and perhaps they should measure the customer’s feet before they try on the shoe.
The sales girl said that I was rude and anyone can try on the shoes, I informed her that her Clientele were not Cinderellas but more like Princess Fiona in shrek.

ImageI was promptly escorted out of the area.
I don’t think I was rude, has anyone here had this problem before, I felt like I was cheated, or am I out of line :?

Oh you poor thing! That's a terrible thing to have happen. I know what it's like, the GLW is always sneaking on my strappy numbers when I....wait. What? :oops:
...whatever the road rules, self-preservation is the absolute priority for a cyclist when mixing it with motorised traffic.

Apple It sounds like those shoes have been around for a while and had more than one set of feet in them before. Did you ask if the shoes where a new or previous seasons model? My advice is not to rush in and try and stick your feet into the first pair you see. Shop around by all means and try before you buy but no one wants to see you pay full price for a commodore that done 100,000 and still on the show room floor. If your heart is still set on them ask if they will do a discount for soiled goods or you could take them to a shoe doctor and have the strap area retightened so it's not like throwing a toothpick into a volcano.

Look, I'm sorry I tried on those shoes before you okay?

I can't help it if I am a size 10 but I think I'm size 6.

Went out shoe shopping today, and managed to stretch a few shoes. Interesting experience - I told the shoe salesperson what size I was, and when they don't have the size they think it's okay to bring a shoe one size smaller thinking I was probably exaggerating and probably I'll fit in a smaller size :-)

No chance, I have feet like these (yes I am being serious, this is a photo of my left foot - just call me Elephant Lady):
