Just after Jerome was born, while my MIL was still here, Rich and I made a trip to our local Tarjay. Though we try not to shop there too often, we had a gift card. I really needed one or two new nursing br@s, since the ones I had from Amira were in pretty bad shape. Well, we went, and looked, and couldn't find them. It was pretty close to their closing time, so we found an employee and asked where we might find them. She said she didn't know, wasn't sure if they carried them, etc.
I knew they did, since I had bought one there before, so we went up front and asked someone who looked older than 13, figuring that the 13 year old we had spoken to might not have nursing apparel on her radar. She didn't know either, but she called back to l*ngerie to ask about it for us. She got a response. They didn't have them in stock, because they were seasonal items.
I'll let that sink in.
Turns out it was the same 13 year old we had spoken to already, so this was her way of evading the question. Or, she thinks humans are like sheep and we have breeding seasons.
We went back one more time, looked in one more place and,yes, we did find them.
They were in season after all.
