Am I missing the fail? Many companies use 'luggage' as a name for their neutral/brown color - perhaps Michael Kors most notably. Images

Retail vibes never quite leave us. I still remember this exchange while I was shopping at a big box electronics store (that I don't work at) on my day off. I was waiting for my ride with my purchases next to me and playing on a display tablet to pass the time. Big Box Custy: Excuse me, where are the CD Players? Me: Sorry, but I don't work here. I don't know where they keep them. Big Box Custy: Oh, you look so official. My outfit? Black Tee, Jean Shorts, Flip flops, and sunglasses. I had my purse and phone out. Couldn't help but laugh. (Employees at the store have blue polos and khakis)

I googled. Yeah, would have noped it the heck out of there in 2 seconds flat.

I worked in Lingerie for 2 years (I'm now in Ready-to-Wear) and the amount of bras ladies bring into the fitting room is insane. One time, I went to check the fitting room and saw a pile that was so ridiculous I had to count. 32. 32 bras. All in a pile on the bench. All had to be hung neatly on one of those little plastic lingerie hangers. UGH.

My store keeps a pretty good amount of stuff in our stockrooms,too. Also, when we look it up to see if we have any more of it in stock, it tells us if it can be shipped from our fulfillment center as well as what stores have it. If I can't just place an order, I can try to call the other stores (which has like a 5% success rate because no one ever answers, but I digress). Unless the item is super old, I can usually get it to them. Suppose I'm lucky that we have a good system.

My area is tourist-y and get this probably 4 times a week. Sorry, people. Our computer will not let us override sales tax without the proper tax-exempt paperwork. Coming from a state without sales tax does not exempt you in our state. Luckily, as long as they are in the US I can do a charge-send and have it sent ahead of them if they'd like. I've never had anyone go super-crusty on me about it.

I've never personally seen someone try to pull that at work. However, I've picked up shifts in handbags and have had several people try to return Michael Kors bags that are clearly from the outlets. (His outlet bags have a different placard and lining).
