I'm really good at embarrassing myself

I decided to be a nice little sister and take my sister shopping for her birthday as opposed to punishing her for all the horrible things she did to me when we were little – I still haven’t gotten her back for that time when she was babysitting and right before my brother’s and my bedtime she went into our rooms, climbed under our covers, and farted like she had never farted before, but I will get revenge; it’s just a matter of time.

Unfortunately, I was too distracted by the glory that is H&M to bother picking out butt ugly outfits to force the big sis to try on. After I spent too much money we decided to wander around some other stores mostly because I suspect big sis was enjoying her trip without her two adorable little boys one of whom when we left kept screaming he NEEDED to give her a hug with his chocolate and maple syrup covered fingers.

First, we went to LuluLemon where I drooled over all the workout clothes that were way too expensive for me to justify buying. Plus why would I want to spend $100 bucks on clothes I’m just going to sweat a lot in? But I still really want this jacket…


After LuluLemon we headed over to the Gap. As we were wandering around I spotted on the opposite wall a gorgeous black purse – just what I’ve been looking for! I headed over to take look and grabbed for it only to find out it was attached to the wall. This being an immediate indication that it was probably out of my price range I started searching for the price tag when out of the frakking blue an ear screeching alarm went off. My sister looked at me like I’d lost my mind and quickly ran away so nobody would think we were together and I looked around and proclaimed very loudly, “I was NOT trying to steal the bag. I was just trying to find out how much it is, but OBVIOUSLY they don’t want us to know and they have LOST MY BUSINESS. HA! That’ll show ‘em.” Then I went on to buy a pair of pants and a sweater. I stick to my words. Oh, and here’s the purse they felt the need to attach an alarm to that had my ears ringing for the next day and a half:

You know, that is a damn nice bag. I think it's a good idea to stick by your word. However, if you will give us a little more information about how the bag is alarmed (maybe a cellphone picture if you're unsure), we can tell you how to defeat said alarm and steal the bag, resulting in an important lesson for the store and a sweet bag for you. Think about it. (Disclaimer: bag might have small hole in it after liberating it from wall if knogo tag is used.)

Dude that is hilarious! I would have shouted the same thing at Gap. Lulu Lemon is nice but way too expensive for cotton clothing. No thanks.

That jacket slightly reminds me of Princess Leia's robe/costume. Is that a bad thing?

Matt - Hilarious I know, really I'm just mad I didn't do it myself.

Stoogepie - Excellent, I think it was a clippie type thing...I'll try to get a picture. I don't mind holes, it will give it character.

Bayjb - Exactly, something that I will have to ask for for Christmas.

Angela - I think that's a bad thing. Good thing I didn't buy it.

Hahaha - well done.

And I have LuluLemon pants, and they are the best sweats ever. I'm sorry, totally worth the price.

Maxie said...

haha that is so something I would do.

I hate when those stupid alarms go off

I love LuluLemon clothes. However, I don't own even a single stitch of their deliciously comfortable fabrics. I just go to the store and lounge around the dressing room. It's all fine and good to drape yourself on the bench in the dressing closet but they tend to get bent out of shape if you ask them to refill your ice tea. Bitches.

I'm afraid to ask why stoogie knows how to defeat store security devices.
