Ugh! Ugh! Ugh!
Just one more. UGH!
I just spent an afternoon putting myself through the misery of jeans shopping. Why? Why must it be so hard? (I give you permission to picture me with my hand on my head all Scarlet O’Hara-like). The agony!
It should be simpler. I should be able to go in a store, find a cute pair, try them on, and think, “OK, this is good. I’m going to get another pair in a lighter color and call it a day.” And I should be able to go to the rack, find the lighter color, and walk out. But, no! It’s NEVER that easy. Because for some silly reason, even if the jeans are the exact same brand and exact same size and exact same style, the other color will NOT fit the exact same way. I mean. SKL:fjioaerhgtionvioahiohfighuiw!! Really?!
So after you try on the pair that’s the same size as the other pair and they don’t fit, you think, “Hmm. OK. I’ll get the next size down. I mean, a size down, that’s not terrible, is it?” Except the next size down will be too small! Or, perhaps you needed the next size up. Opposite problem. They are ginormous.
So now if you really need two pair, you must find an entirely different kind, which starts the process all over again (because Heaven forbid your size in a new brand/style remain consistent). 18 pairs tried on later, and you have something that works. Probably.
I really think this is one of those situations where the controller of the cosmic universe is looking down 0n me and laughing. “Silly female human. We’d never let things be THAT easy, now would we?”
The ONLY thing worse, as a shopping experience, is trying to find a bathing suit. I have to wonder how many people out there actually have a perfectly proportionate body and find it easy to buy a two piece suit? If the bottoms fit? The top doesn’t. If the top fits, the bottoms don’t. And often you can’t buy them separately. So then you’re forced to choose: Do I want my um, melons, falling out so that my bum stays in? Or do I want loose bottoms and secure melons?
Thanks for letting me rant. Does anyone else have these issues?
