The Worst Salesman...ever!

I know that I write about this subject often, but this one takes the cake.  Hands down.

I showed you pics from our gorgeous day on the Seaside boardwalk here, and I would hope that you thought Gwen looked very cute and quite girly.

Right?  Minnie Mouse/polka dotted hoodie, skinny jeans, and some ruffled sandals.

Well, some of you may or may not know that the Seaside Boardwalk is filled with "t-shirt" shops. Yes, just like the "Shore Store"-  but they are up and down the boardwalk.

Usually these stores have someone standing on the outskirts of the store enticing people to come in.

As we were strolling along with Gwen, we passed one of these said stores and a young boy {about 17-19 years old} decide to throw us his best pitch.

Salesboy - "Look at how cute HE is! You should bring HIM in here and we can make HIM a shirt."

Now, I am pretty sure that my family knows how I feel about this, and they wanted to just keep on walking.  But, me?  Oh no.

I stopped dead in my tracks, turned and said...


SB- "What?"

"She.  This is a little girl"

You would have thought that I shot this poor kid in the leg.  He looked so crushed, embarrassed, and defeated {bc obviously if I had any thought of heading into his store, I definitely was not now}

We all had a good laugh about it and walked on.

Here is the kicker of the story...

Let's fast forward about 2 hours later...

Walking by the SAME store.
SAME salesboy.

He says the exact. same. thing.

No shit. I kid you not.

This time I am holding Gwen as he insults us with the worst sales pitch in the world and I stop and look at him, with my meanest "oh no you didn't...again" look on my face and said...

"She is STILL a girl"

SB- "What?" {Clearly he has forgotten us and also isn't the brightest crayon in the box}

"Yes, remember us from before, when you called her a boy... she's STILL a girl."

The poor kid genuinely looked sorry as he smacked himself in the forehead and stuttered an apology... I couldn't help but laugh.

{This is the reason that I REALLY need Gwen's hair to grow in, like now. lol}

And to be honest, at this point he should have offered to make my son a free t-shirt... no??

WHAT?! It really burns me up when people say he instead of she...and trust me hair or not people are so confused! This happened to us the other day in Starbucks, but luckily not twice. Sorry Mama...I know how mad it can make us feel!
