I make a concerted effort to say something nice to everyone I encounter everyday.

So yesterday, I'm at a department store waiting as the sales associate rings up my purchase and I notice that she smells really nice. So I say, "wow, you smell great, what is that you're wearing"? She responds, "oh, it's a lotion I get at Bath and Body Works".

I say, "do you remember the name of it"? And she responds, "yes", and then looks down at the register.

Ummmm, okay, weird...so feeling a little awkward, but with a huge smile, I say, "well, are you going to tell me"? And she says, "it's just for me. It's my personal scent, I don't want to share that information".

WTF!

Doesnt the store do a mix your own scent? Or is that only with oils.

I would've said... "Well, I try to find the positive in everyone, so I'd have to say... 'You excel at being a weirdo super bitch', have a nice day!"

On the other hand... I don't think I'd comment on how someone smells in the first place because I think all perfumes stink.

I just don't understand people like this. I have never in my life refused to share info like that, especially if someone has complimented me. You know like people that refuse to share recipes and such. Now if culinary is their livelihood, well then of course I understand them not sharing. But just your ordinary person not sharing info like, where they get their haircut, or whatever, WTH, just simply bizarre in my book.

I think it's great that you find positive things to say to people each day! I hope some of your kindness rubbed off on that woman. I wonder what she has going on in her personal life that she was protecting the name of the mass produced mall store lotion as if it were the top secret original recipe for Coke. I mean I wonder if in some other area of her life she was feeling like she didn't have any space to breathe or something?

How weird! I have worked at a dept store before and You get mystery shopped all the time. I would have thought she would try to be nice just for that fact!

She could have just said she didn't remember what the scent was called... There's no need to be rude (esp when u work in customer service)

Seriously, I think a hearty laugh and a little head shake would have put her in her place. WOW, some women, that's how we treat other women?


When other women ask me what I'm wearing, I'm all like "OMG, it's PINK SUGAR by Aquolina, you HAVE TO GET IT!!! Here, let me spray you!!", but I'm a little over enthusiastic like that. My husband says I should be in marketing.

There's a BBW I used to go to that allowed you to mix your own scent, then put it in whatever product you wanted. Am I the only one who's been to that kind of store?

Those of you that are thinking that BBW does customs scents, I've never know them to do so.

I have had a scent mixed at The Body Shop though.

My dd 16 and I were talking about someone being bitchy today and I told her this story. She says you need to make it your life mission to find that scent, and then douse yourself in it to the point that people run and hide, then go into her store daily and say "How do I smell? Does it make you a little mad? I thought so."

But she's a little extreme
