Working hard today, resetting a product line and putting out the order, just doing the day to day when in walks a tall, blond, college student (our future leaders-YIKES!) Wearing leggings as pants (strike ONE!) no makeup, hair pulled back in a ponytail-typical. I smile and say, “Hi! What Can I help you find??” She looks at me and asks, “Do you have Pure Minerals, P-U-R?” I say, “Of course!” Come right back here. As I am walking her to the back of the store where this product line is located I ask, “Is there a particular product you are looking for?” She answers, “Yes, it’s a lipstick.” I respond, “Do you know what color you are after?” To which she replies, “Gang Bang.” Struggling to keep my poker face intact I say, “Excuse Me?” Again she says, “It’s called Gang Bang.” You just can’t make this shit up. As I am trying my best to keep my voice level, knowing that if it wavers even slightly, I am going to lose it and it will be the kind of hysterical laughter that there is no coming back from… I look at her and ask, “GAME DAY?? And she says, “Oh is that what it is called? I picked it up and showed it to her and she said, “Oh Yeah-That’s it!!” She left smiling and I stood there and shook my head. Gang Bang. Who knew that was a color? I thought it was a social statement….
