Apparently money is worth more when you're thinner?
While being thin may not get you more merchandise, it certainly seems to get you better service.
I have noticed that since losing over 130 lbs the level of service I receive from employees of most retailers has gotten so much better.
It seems that higher-end like Nordstrom, Neiman's and Bana Republic understand that just because a person is shopping there but may not fit in their clothes doesn't mean that person isn't shopping for someone else.
I have always received top notch service at those above named retailers regardless of what my what was.
I have to say this wasn't the case everywhere unfortunately. I think the most blatant case for me was shopping at Express. I was shopping there for Christmas gifts and was blatantly ignored. Now that I have lost over 130 lbs, I walk into Express and their employees are more helpful than ever.
Yes its angering, but do I blame Express? Not at all. Do i blame the employees? Their friends? Their other surroundings and influences? Yes.
If you would like to read my letter to express you can view it on my blog.
