I was paying a visit to a customer of whom I have got to know her for the past 2 years or so yesterday, her company is selling health products and once in a while,her bosses will bring in some products from overseas to add to the store's product line.
So I was asking her what was the latest product her boss had brought in , she happily showed me a brochure that had a picture of a sexy lady cladding in a one kind of tight lingerie that pompously showed off her voluptuously deep cleavage, then she said that was exactly their latest product......one kind of "lingerie" that was supposedly to enhance a lady's asset.
So the following conversation ensued between me and my dear customer.
Me, " How much is one lingerie like that ?"
She. " RM888.00"
Me, " Is it selling well ?"
She, " Good, cos ours are not that expensive than the others"
Me," So after wearing for how long, can you see the result?"
She," What result?"
Me," " I mean to firm up the sagging boobs"
She," You stupid or what?,this one cannot do that one lah"
Me," Then do what?
She," This one is for you to show off one lah,if you go party or dinner, wearing those gowns,if you wear this inside,then you will stand out ma "
Me," So a lady spends RM888 to buy that special "lingerie" to show off?"
She," Ya la, cos now even among ladies and ladies,if they go to party or dinner,they have to show off and to tell you the truth,going to dinners and party now is not cheap for ladies,you know?"
She,"So you want to buy one for your wife or not?"
Me," No need lah, she no need to show off one ma"
She," Come one Eugene,how you know your wife doesn't want to show off,you go and buy for her and see"
Her last statement really got me thinking, If i were to buy for my lovely wife one of those RM888 super lingerie, would she be happy or would she chastise me for buying something that is not so "useful" ?
P/S : Vanity..........I like that
