if they had chairs in the outlets, i'd camp out just to observe all day.

as in my intro before, i'm totally new to coach..just started hitting outlets at the end of summer this year. previously, i had never even stepped in.

i can only imagine what i'll see over the holidays as the stores get even busier, but so far pretty much each trip i've made i've been witness to mayhem and foolishness (credit: neicy nash)

i figure i'm new, so it's got to be only the tip of the iceberg.... please share whatever histronics you all have witnessed.

my main story i've been retelling is one morning at the charleston sc outlet, i waited outside for the store to open with a very nice well dressed lady proably in her 60's. she had a bag with something to return. once we were in the store i was fussing about all the deletes, and i gradually noticed the sales associates voice was getting louder and her tone became firmer.
this lady had five bags to return. before i started really listening the SA had already put a couple of her bags to the side. she asked the lady if any of the bags were UNused, the lady replied she had never used them. well in each bag the SA was finding and having to point out giant stains (yes i'm nosey and i saw one: a giant brown looked like a coffee stain the size of my hand on pale pink interior lining). so she sets aside yet another bag in her pile of 'obviously used nonreturnable bags'.....the kicker was when she got to the last bag, her face turned into a grimacing scowl, and she again asked the lady if this one too is 'never used', and the lady insists it sat on a shelf in her closet since she bought it.
well the SA opens the palm of her hand to show her what she just pulled out of the bag: toenail clippers.... and then she proceeds to open the bag and show the lady the interior and loudly states: 'THERE ARE TOENAIL CLIPPINGS INSIDE OF THIS BAG, YOU HAVE NO BAGS THAT ARE UNUSED AND NONE CAN BE RETURNED!!'

_the end_:nuts:

that's the main thing me and my group wanted to know! did she clip her toenails OVER the purse, or toss 'em in there...either way GROSS OUT....i was dying when it was my turn to pay, but the SA kept such a straight face while i was laughing my @ss off but she did say 'and they were definately not fingernails either, TOE nails all the way'

Yeah, that's just nasty! I don't know how the lady returning the purses didn't die of embarrassment after that event. Guess she thought she could fool the SA, boy was she wrong!

The first time I ventured into an outlet was over Labor Day in Camarillo, Ca. The women in there were like wild animals. The women had armfuls of stuff, their husbands did, and their small children did too! I was shufffling along in there trying to take my time looking at all the goodies and some woman bolted across the store to reach something she saw in the back and knocked me over:bagslap:. Luckily one of the little couches was there to break my fall. A SA saw this and immediately came over to see if I was OK. She asked if there was anything special I was looking for and I said I really wanted a wallet. She smiled and grabbed my hand and said "Honey, today is your lucky day." She took me over to the 50% clearance bin where there were wallets flying everywhere and opened one of the drawers underneath and presented me with a Signature Soho French Purse and informed me with the clearance price and the 20% coupons they were giving out at the door and her "special discount" this wallet would be only $30. And it was the last one...and she had been holding it for herself. The other women went nuts and started bombarding the poor SA with demands that she must have more and what else is in the drawer. She closed the drawer and locked it and escorted me through the sea of people to the register and told me to have a beautiful day and like that she vanished. I think she was my Fairy Coach-Mother!:girlsigh:

The first time I ventured into an outlet was over Labor Day in Camarillo, Ca. Not to be offensive to anyone, but I have never seen so many Asian people packed into one space in my LIFE.

If you have to add the disclaimer you already know what you are about to post is offensive. Describing people as 'wild animals' while highlighting their ethnicity is highly offensive, just in case you are unaware.

And no I'm not Asian!
