This year for Halloween, Baylor has been passed down a great (and might I add very well accessorized) costume from her cousin Madi. She is new to Minnie, but she’s becoming a big time fan. The costume has everything, except for the ears. No biggie, right? I’ll just cruise on over to the Disney store at the mall and pick up a pair.
As I stroll into the store, there in the very front are Minnie ears. Except they have a pink bow instead of a red one. Bummer. So I ask the woman behind the desk…here’s how it played out:
“Excuse me. Do you have any Minnie ears with the re-”
“No! We are totally and completely sold out. Totally.”
“Oh. Ok. Thank yo-”
“And every store is sold out too!”
At this point, I’m pissed. I was sad that they didn’t have what I wanted, but to go and really shove it down my throat that they didn’t have it is a little much. And that’s when I get a little snarky..
“Oh. Do you think you could check to see if another store has it?”
“No. I just said that everyone is out.”
“Everyone? Even online? Like there are no more anywhere?? ANYWHERE??”
And that’s when she turned and helped another customer. So much for being the happiest place on earth. And the joke’s on her because I did find them at Party City for $6.99 rather than the $16.00 they charged at the Disney Store!!
This much excitement may mean that it’s time for some vacation….
