Apple. Nice people.

I have mentioned before my love affair with handbags. I have bags that I have never carried because I am terrified of getting blemishes on them. My most fabulous bag is a Fendi Spy. It has been out of the house precisely once. I carried a trash bag with me in case of rain, dust storms, tumbleweeds or plagues of frogs.
Anywho, I digress …
Today I got caught in a rain shower. I was carrying one of my favorite handbags and I didn’t want it to get wet and so I sheltered in the Apple store hoping for a swift end to the rain. It became apparent that it wasn’t stopping anytime soon. The sales folks were hovering as usual. I decided that I would just have to make a run for home before the rain got too heavy. Not wanting my handbag to get soaked, I asked the Nice Sales Associate if they could help me out.
Me: It is raining outside and I don’t want my handbag to get wet.
Nice Sales Associate: Riiiiight?
Me: I don’t suppose I could have one of your plastic bags?
NSA: Of course! Here.
Me: My handbag thanks you.
NSA: Any time.
I raced home with my handbag protected. Sadly the same could not be said of my head or my soggy newspaper. Yeah, I should have asked for two 😉
Nice people at Apple. I am sure that if I had asked, they probably would have given me two.
