The Customer is [Not] Always Right

Slippery Christmas Ice
Retail | United Kingdom

(This occurred two days after Christmas Day on the refunds desk.)

Customer: “These slippers don’t fit! I’ve been the same shoe size for years. It must be these new European sizes, I can’t even get my foot in!”

Me: “That’s no proble,m sir. I’ll just refund these and give you a credit note, then you can go and choose some slippers that fit.”

Customer: “This ruined my Christmas, you know!”

(I take the slippers and examine them for any faults or damage, while the customer continues to rant.)

Me: “Sir, did you remove the tissue paper from the toes before you tried these on?”

Customer: “Oh…”

(Needless to say, the slippers did in fact fit. Christmas was saved.)

I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas

I don’t know where he finds this stuff, but Perez Hilton is a star. Best Twitpic thus far.

If you are like me (and I am hoping that you are), you enjoy spending the holidays holed up at home in pjs. It is the eve of New Year’s Eve so enjoy the lack of pressure to wear uncomfortable heels/skintight dresses that you paid to much for by relaxing in front of the TV. Christmas has passed, but it is never too late for some Christmas movies (I will continue to say this through May and all of the summer months, after which it will once again be acceptable to admit to watching Christmas movies). This list sums up 15 of the best (and cheesiest), and even if you aren’t interested in holiday fare the site is full of guilty pleasure reading that will take you back to your college days and make you consider looking at Juicy Campus. I am enjoying watching lighthearted and happy holiday movies until I return to the states and my Netflix subscription resumes.

As for movies to look forward to in 2009: Bride Wars, Slumdog Millionaire, He’s Just Not that into You, Confessions of a Shopaholic, and Fast & Furious (disclaimer: yes, I have horrible taste in action flicks but I am a sucker for Vin Deisel and the fourth installment in the series finally sees his return.) Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience? Pink Panther 2? Not so excited about. Would not want to see either in widescreen. Trailers after the jump.
