The SAs don't like for us to say "leather"

  1. ...they want us to say "skin":smile:

    I don't know how many of them have tried to correct me on this....or inform me....it took me forever to stop saying "leather" and say "skin."

    OK, I have it now:yes:

    .......Skin!!:cutesy:
     
  2. Interesting Isus. I suppose that from now on the topic on the forum would be...What is your favorite skin?" What skin is next in for you?" Come and check my new skin"
     
  3. I think I will always continue to say leather instead of skin.

    Somehow the sentence "OMG! This ____ is so yummilious and luxurious to the touch" just doesn't sound as right when "skin" is used ;):shame:
     
  4. I would feel funny saying "skin"...Just like the expample pyrexia gave, it just sounds weird to say skin.
     
  5. The last time I was in New York, my SA said "Where's the leather book?" She didn't say "Where's the skin book?" If she did, I would have thought she was distracted and looking for porn!
     
  6. ^ hahha! that was hiliarious. ;)
     
  7. Well, their 'skin' book has "The Leather Book" embossed on the cover.
     
  8. Hmm, my SA doesn't seem to care nor have I ever been corrected.
     
  9. Come to think of it, it puts a whole new spin on the Hermes experience if your SA wants you to come in and say, "Show me some skin!!" LOL
     
  10. :roflmfao::roflmfao::roflmfao::roflmfao::roflmfao::roflmfao:

     
  11. I never had the term "skin"used with a SA unless we were talking exotics.
     
  12. i think it's rude to correct a customer who uses a different word that is still utterly appropriate. according to wordnet.princeton.edu:
    leather - an animal skin made smooth and flexible by removing the hair and then tanning.
     
  13. I agree...using "skin" and describing it as yummy and soft, resilient, slouchy...

    I don't know....

    Now I am getting flashes of the character, Jame Gumb, from "Silence or the Lambs" dancing around to that song from reading this thread...
     
  14. I can't get myself to say........................."skin".............:s
     
  15. ^^ me neither... (and I have never heard the SAs say it either)
