I work at a community center and therefore am a captive audience to many types of people. I have a regular customer that comes in every day. He is 54 and in a wheelchair. He comes in and pedals the recumbent bike for 10-20 minutes and then sits and talks to me for at least an hour.
Anyway, he isn't always the most subtle person and more than once I have told him he shouldn't talk to people the way he does.
So today, it was really cold and windy out and I broke out the puffer coat. For those of you that have seen some of my posts you know I like color so my puffer isn't a nice slimming neutral. It's a knee length hot pink puffer with bright orange lining.
I love this coat as much today as the day my mom bought it for me. The minute I saw the coat it made me happy and still makes me happy every time I wear it. So I walk in to work and the customer is already there. He says I want to say something but I know it will make you mad and hurt your feelings. I say then that is something you should keep to yourself. He says I know and then proceeds to tell me anyway that he doesn't like my coat and it makes me look huge.
It did hurt my feelings and now has me questioning whether I should wear something that I look huge in even though I love it. It's a coat and it's for warmth not to win a fashion show but still, that was just mean. :(
