Are You Listening Mr. Dressing-Room Mirror?


Dear Mr. Dressing-Room Mirror,

Your behavior this evening was completely unacceptable. I have never been so humiliated in all my life. Who do you think you are? I do have feelings you know. We need to come to an understanding, you and I. You work for the department store and the department store works for me. Get it? That means you need to be doing everything in your power to make the sale.

For the record, I don't believe for one second that I have that much grey hair, or that my legs pucker like that. And whose ridiculous stomach was that you showed me?

Again, not mine.

You're not fooling anyone with that awful flourescent lighting my friend. You're a circus-fun-house-wannabee, that's what you are.

To think, people believe our economy is depressed. You've got the whole nation fooled. It's not the economy. It's stinkin' dressing room mirrors like yourself that are keeping women like me from spending a dime on clothing.

Candlelight. That's the answer.

Cheri said...

I love it!! You are hilarious- I'm guessing if we investigated who's making the mirrors we would find the makers of girdles behind it all :)

Aspiemom said...

You're a riot! I've been to that mirror, too. I just never wrote it a letter. Thanks for the laugh!

We are all so much better looking in dimmer light!

Angie said...

YOU crack me up! I loved it! To think....it wasn't me after all! Those dimpled legs surely belong to someone ELSE!

It's all been a fignewton of my imagination!

Thanks for clarifying!!!

Think that is bad? Everytime I look in ANY mirror my 'Dad' looks back at me!!

Heather of the EO said...

That was so funny! Thank you for the laugh. I think I've had this very conversation in my head :)

A Stone Gatherer said...

I'm with you! Ban them all!

Ha ha ha...so funny! I agree candle light works.

I think most women could agree with that post! Especially as we get older. Stalking you today from The Redhead Riter!

Crown of Beauty said...

This is not only funny, it is also real...way too real. And I agree with you, those blaring fluorescent lights are the culprit. Subdued lighting... it would definitely push the sales up in the ladies department.

Store owners and managers should read this post.

Came here at the suggestion of Redhead Riter...and I'm glad I did.

Love
Lidj

Sheri said...
