I grew up poor, I dress in whatever is on sale. Besides, this was Las Vegas and it was hot outside. I had saved money and took vacation from work so I could party in sin city for my 21st birthday. One night while coming out of the club in one of the hotels, i passed by a high class jewelry store. A beautiful necklace, much like one I had seen in a childhood movie, was gleaming in the front display case. Squinting and pacing, I tried to see what the price said, but I couldn't see it. So I decided I would return the next day and find out. There I was, in my beat up jean mini shorts and VS beach blouse, and searched for the price. I still couldnt find it. I looked for an employee. A man in a tuxedo stood a few feet away. He had seen me come in, but had not aknowledged me, and continued to to look straight ahead. I asked him if he could tell me the price. At first he bl
inked like he was surprised/didnt register what I had said. Then he told me to wait a moment while he asked another employee. A woman in a fancy suit dress came and asked me if I needed help. I asked her for the price, she checked it and said the amount, it was soooo coslty, I forgot how much it was, but I think a new car would be cheaper than it was. I said it was very beautiful, and she mentioned what designer made it, etc. Well, I felt pretty embarassed for coming in asking, I was clearly a fish out of water in this place. So, I said the stupidest thing to cover up my embarassment. I told her I would "wait on it" and "try purchasing it online". She just nodded and smiled, but i'm sure she was thinking in her mind:Ya....RIGHT!!!! what a joke, this girl is pathetic!. Looking back, I still laugh and can't believe I said that.
