Pay No Attention to the Battle of Wills Behind the Curtain

Customer: [holding various accessories] “May I try these on?”

Me: “Sure. The dressing room is right behind these curtains.”

Customer: [unbuttoning pants] “Oh, you can leave those open…”

And I smiled brightly and whipped them shut like a Disney villain’s cape.

He didn’t find anything wearable he liked, but he did buy a travel-size container of leather-scented personal lubricant. I asked him if he needed a bag, and he was like, “Nah, I’m going to try it out right now,” and then he came back into the store 10 minutes later and gave me a thumbs up.

I feel like we broke even in the thwarting each other department.
