I was told this story last night while watching the Devon fireworks.
The new linen store in East Hampton was having some type of party or gathering and a lady who normally bikes around town decided to stop in and take a look.
Now from what I'm told she can easily afford to buy what this shop is selling.
She's browsing the linens and feeling a particular sheet when one of the staff walks up and says something to the effect of, "you know that's really expensive, you shouldn't be touching that."
The lady shopping was so stunned she replied, "I can afford to buy this."
Please note: these quotes are not verbatim, but the act of judging this shopper based on her dress is rude. Maybe if she drove up on the curb with a Benz or Hummer she'd be allowed to touch the merchandise?
