~ Hey Everybody ~ This story is VERY, VERY, VERY long ..... I hope you all don't mind. Gosh, where do I start. Well .... today I went shopping for new clothes because I am going back to college in 2 weeks (my mother and Damier Sophie tagged along with me ). It started as a good day because we first ate at the food court and had a nice mother and daughter conversation. We first went to Maddens where I got 2 pairs of gorgeous shoes, then we went to Forever 21 where I got 3 pretty jeans and lastly we went to Old Navy where I got 5 cute shirts. As the Old Navy cashier was ringing up my shirts she asked: "Are you interested in any of our accesories because they are currently 25% off for a limited time only?" (which included some handbags). I told her: "No, Thank You. I think I already did enough damage to my credit card today." (at this time my mom went outside the store to sit down on a bench.) RIGHT WHEN MY MOM LEFT .... she glanced at my Damier Sophie, rolled her eyes and said: "Oh go figure, your one of those girls whose mommy and daddy buys you the expensive designer bags." Now just to let everybody know my father passed away when I was 14 years old so that comment really hurt my feelings. This was my expression right after she said that: ----> I was completely shocked, speechless and was thinking **did she really just say that to me?** Then while she was folding the shirts to put in the bag she then said: "So how much did that bag cost?" Trying not to literally cry or get angry I said: "It's a Louis Vuitton bag so it was around $500." She then goes: "What? $500 for a little tiny brown bag that looks like a wallet. Where did you get it from cause I don't think Louis Vuitton has ever made a purse like that?" I said: "It is a limited edition bag and I got it from a Louis Vuitton Boutique in Hawaii." (I really got it from eBay but I didn't want to say that because I know she would of right away thought that it was fake and I didn't want to go into details how I knew it wasn't.) She then told me the total for my purchases and I paid with my credit card. As the receipt was printing she said: "That purse was definitely not worth $500 because it is way too small and very plain. I would rather have a $20 purse with $500 cash inside it." She then gave me the receipt to sign and as I was signing it I said: "Well, I guess me and you are two very different people." She handed me the shopping bag and said: "Obviously." I just grabbed the bag and walked out of the store where my mom was. My mom instantly knew something was wrong (I guess I had an angry look on my face or my nose was red which usually happens when I want to cry) so she said: "Are you okay?" Then as we were walking out of the mall to the car I told her everything that happened and then I got all teary eyed. :cry: I was kind of upset with myself because I wanted to tell that cashier SO MANY things ..... like I (not my mom or husband) buy all my Louis Vuittons with my hard working money. I have my own apartment, I have a full-time job, I pay many bills and I'm about to go to college on top of all of that. I have no idea why I didn't just go off on her because she acted like I was some spoiled brat living off of other people's money or something. *UGH* I always try to not let people like her get me down like this but not only did she hurt my feelings about my "plain" Damier Sophie (that I absolutely love by the way) but she also hurt me when she mentioned my "daddy", whom is not even here anymore. *WHEW* Sorry everybody for the long story. I just needed to let it out and I knew all of you would understand how it feels when people say rude comments about our Louis Vuittons. Thanks so much for reading!
