Part Two Of Two

I went to get the dress after work yesterday. After telling the girl (who decided to wear sweatpants to her job as a bridal consultant) my name, she went off in search of the dress. Here is the thing... the bride actually paid for the dress to begin with. So when I told her the name, I said, "It is either under Rachel or Jenny, I'm not sure which." I waited, and waited, and almost told the happy couple who came through the door to RUN, but didn't.... and she finally came back.
"I'm sorry, what was your name again?"
"Oh. Well this is a purple, short Alfred Angelo dress, but this isn't the name. Could it be under something else?" Oh. My. God.
"Yes, as a matter of fact it could be Jenny ---."
"Oh. Well this doesn't have a last name, and it says Jennifer, not Jenny. Do you think that's the same one?"
"You know what, it probably is. Crazy.."

So I take it and I'm out the door, and she comes running over and whispers, "You already paid for that right?" I had, but at this point I realized who I was dealing with and that I probably could have gotten it for free, but I said, "Yes, back in December." She nodded and went back inside. She didn't even CHECK. I totally could have stolen the dress and no one would have been the wiser. (I have a guilty conscience so I wouldn't have done it, but still....)

And I went home and tried it on, and guess what. My size 14 hips fit perfectly in the size 10 dress. Who would have guessed?!? (There is a lot of sarcasm in those last couple sentences, in case you didn't catch on.) Actually, it may be the first bridesmaids dress in history that doesn't need to be altered. I know I took a risk, what with trying it on and all, so I'm happy it all worked out. (More sarcasm.)

In other news... this week, they have found three snakes in my office building. Since I have an irrational fear of snakes, my feet are not touching the floor, and if I see one I already let everyone know I would be leaving.

Also, I still have no allergy symptoms. So I'm thinking the greens are working???

Oh yes everyone... snakes. As in, 3 baby copperheads. And also a lizard. I don't know where they are coming from but I am terrified and will FREAK OUT if I see one.

And Kristy, I have such a temper and short patience for stupidity that sometimes I can't even help myself. I need to work on that :)
