The mannequins in River Island are just having a tough time right now, OK?

ARE u OK hun, though? Really?

CLOTHES SHOPPING IS often a punishing task, your spirit taking a beating with every ill-fitting garment you try on. Even mannequins agree.

Earlier this week, Irish author Sarah Maria Griffin (who just released her second book, Spare & Found Parts) spotted some mannequins in River Island having a good think about their lives and choices:

“Never drinking again.”

“I don’t know what a tracker mortgage is.”

“Maybe if I sit like this the cramps will go away.”

These particular sad sacks were spotted in Dublin’s Grafton Street store, but mannequins are having similar crises all over Ireland.

But what could have a mannequin so depressed? Being trapped in a shiny prison where they only want you for your body? Oh. We get it.
