So today at lunch, I stopped by the mall to pick up some socks, for I have a dreaded sock eating monster hidden in my washing machine. After picking up a package of brand new white socks, I swung by the Macy’s right next door, just to see what they had on sale.
Well, as I was wandering the aisles looking at jackets and sweaters, I decided that I wanted to get a new jacket. I didn’t want anything fancy, just a nice, decent furry jacket I could wear around while at work. So i walked around the store looking for a furry jacket in a size “medium.” Now you would think being a “medium” means you’re in between small and large, also meaning that they should have plenty of stuff in your size since it’s a common size right?
Wrong! I searched the entire section and all I found were: large, extra large, and extra extra large. What the? And it wasn’t because I wasn’t looking hard either. I pretty much pulled out every single jacket I saw and checked their labels to make sure it wasn’t a medium.
Out of around 200 soft jackets I looked at, there were exactly zero mediums and exactly one small. Okay. Fine! They don’t get my business for the day.
