Last week I tried a new nail salon for a 'fill' and a pedicure. The lovely woman who did my nails was friendly and we easily chatted about our similar interests. Upon discovering I was a military wife she quickly said, "Take me shopping, I need some makeup!" I was a bit taken back by her forward comment when she reiterated, "Seriously, take me shopping! I had another customer who took me to the NEX but she moved. I've been looking for another navy wife to take me shopping so I could save some money!"
I smiled and said, "oh, I can't do that" when she quickly said, "Everyone does it! What, are you afraid?"
Have you experienced this? I've certainly had family members ask me to pick something up for them but never asked me to 'take them shopping.' I was shocked that a complete stranger would ask me to do that. How about you? What would you have said? And, do you think 'everyone' does it?
What is your opinion?
