YOU DON’T HAVE to have worked in retail to experience a true retail horror story. Oh no.
Earlier this week, Twitter user Natalie shared her traumatising tale – it’s a situation that we’ve thought about before, but dismissed as being too outlandish to ever happen in real life. But it has happened. And it probably will again.
Tried on a bra in Primark and it was nice so I went to buy it but there was no tag so the guy went to find a supervisor to get a code, comes back and goes “This isn’t ours, it’s a swap”. So someone literally left THEIR OWN BRA on a hanger in order to shoplift one AND I TRIED IT ON
Look, maybe it isn’t as bad as it would be if it were a pair of knickers, but there’s still something uncomfortably intimate about putting on someone else’s bra.
The tale has horrified Twitter, and inspired people to share similar stories of their own. This happens way too often for comfort. Basically, no item of clothing is safe.
There are also the people who think it’s acceptable to do this.
Though some people did wonder if she got to take the bra anyway. Guess not everyone is weirded out by the thought of wearing someone else’s cast-off underwear?
WHY ARE PEOPLE LIKE THIS.
Let it be a lesson to all of us: Look twice if not thrice before you try.
