It MUST have been on sale.Burl is a polyester kind of guy….but Joy found a cashmere sweater on clearance.
He probably wore it, and spilled chili on it, and she realised she couldn’t throw it in the washer and dryer.
BUT… much as I dislike the Pennys (like every normal person here)…I have to say…I would want to zing that sales clerk too.
I’ve spent years in retail… met every kind of jerk and abuser of the system and my good will….
But you don’t say something like that to a customer.Not even Burl.Not even if you have to momentarily turn your back and stuff your fist in your mouth.And I’ve been there.
