Shopping for Hardware in Softwear

Christina Marie remarked, “So much easier to shop for things when in girl mode, huh?”

Yes, indeed!

You have your shapewear strategically in place, so you know how the item will fit when you try it on and you are in makeup and wearing a do, so you know how the item will look on madam.

Yes, shopping in girl mode is so much easier… even if you are not shopping for girly things!

Which reminds me of the time I visited a Lowe’s home improvement store in girl mode to get a replacement part for a piece of plumbing that failed. I had no trepidation about going to Lowe’s and I found my trip very revealing.

Whenever I go to Lowe’s or Home Depot in boy mode, I have to find and ask a store employee when I need help. In girl mode, I had a male Lowe’s employee practically at my beck and call without asking. 

When he saw me looking lost in the plumbing department, he asked what I needed and directed me to the exact location where the part was displayed. After I found what I needed, he came over and compared it to the old part I had brought along to make sure I got the right part.

That's the power of a short skirt and high heels!

  3. This made me laugh about an incident that, at the time, made me quite uncomfortable. I had gone to buy a deadbolt and was asked, between the door and the clearly labeled aisle, four times if I needed any help. As I was looking over the locks I chanced to glance to over my shoulder — all four of my helpful assistants were milling about behind me! In the moment I felt a bit like a well surveyed gazelle under the gaze of a pride of lions and so beat a hasty retreat, sans deadbolt, to the bright summer sunlight outside. I have since girded my loins and gone back and had keys cut, that time my band of loyal followers was just two, a reduction which left me in a state of indecision about whether to be relieved or disappointed.
