Shopping 101: The Rules of the Mall
There is an unwritten code of shopping rules (they are practically laws) everyone knows, at least I thought everyone did. That is until last night when I went shopping with my boyfriend and discovered that not everyone was aware of this unspoken code. We were browsing the racks at Ross for his sister’s birthday present when after what felt like hours of searching I stumbled on this fantastic tee which of course I had to have.
I was already picturing rocking this tee with some jeans and Converse when in the midst of my day dream I heard my boyfriend say, “wow, that is a cool shirt, do you think she will like it?” Naturally, I spotted it first, said I loved it and claimed it for myself, but he couldn’t comprehend why I got dibs on the shirt. I had to explain to him that there are shopping guidelines in place and that the person who lays eyes on the merchandise first snags the piece (this rule applies whether there is one item or multiples of the same item). He seemed surprised almost astonished to learn this. I figure it’s because guys don’t shop together, but this may be a farfetched concept.
