“You know, I don’t say this very often but, that’s a really nice coat.”
This is what the guy at the Walgreen’s checkout counter told me as I was making my purchase at 7:30 this morning. I was wearing my Couch Coat. I figured he was just being nice.
“Oh, well thanks! I get a lot of compliments on this coat actually.”
Which I do and it always makes my day to hear a nice thing said about something I’m wearing.
“I can see why. It’s really awesome.”
Now I was starting to wonder if he a) wanted the coat so that he could wear it, b) was hitting on me or c) was angling for a tip. Sorry buddy, if you want a tip go work at the IHOP down the street.
Thinking ok, you were nice, I appreciate it, now give me my change so I can go.
“No problem. Have a great day and stay warm out there, though I’m sure that coat will keep you warm.”
Ok now he was really overdoing it. Surely no one could just be that nice. I mean, I know it’s an awesome coat but it’s not THAT awesome. He must be after something! I scurried out to the car before he could shake me down.
I drove in to work and as I was walking down the hall to my desk, a woman getting on the elevator shouts out to me, “Hey, great coat!”
Ok, so I guess it really is that great.
