** Bitch mode ON**
I went to MotherCare in MidValley last night to get a gift for my friend, YS's baby girl.
I saw a 4 piece baby clothes that I thought would be a perfect gift for her. Being short as I am, I was just barely reaching the top rack of baby clohtes hanging on the hangers. Lazy to tiptoe, I decided to get help from the sales girl standing beside me that was looking like a 'dummy'.
Me: Excuse me, can you please help me get this (pointing to the style I liked) for 3-6 months old.
Sales girl started searching the clothes line for the sizes (there has to be at least 20 more in stock hanging on the clohtes line)
*** After about 1 minute***
Sales girl: Sorry tak de la (don't have). We need the baby's weight .. our clohtes go by baby's weight.
Me: (Thinking already WTF..this is really the first time I heard baby clothes go by weight of the baby!!).
So I decided to search for the clothes myself. I mean what are the chances. There are about 20 pieces left hanging and there's none for babies 3-6 months old??
After what seemed like 5 seconds...I found exactly what I was looking for. And then I showed Ms Blur.
I then took a closer look at the prints on the hanger and noticed that there was actually an indication of the baby's weight at a particular age for the recommended size and about 2 inches below that the age of the baby was stated in BIG PRINT (3-6 MONTHS). Ms. Blur must have missed that bit out and only saw the weight and jumped to conclusion that the right size for babies clohtes can only be obtained if we have the baby's weight. Well at least she was decent enough to apologize but I doubt it was for her stupidity.
Seriously, I wonder how she got recruited. Any sane thinking person WOULD KNOW that you don't choose clothes based on YOUR WEIGHT - be it adult, children or babies!!!
Stay tuned for my post sometime within the next 2 weeks on the True-Spa voucher that I won from the malaysian women's weekly! Total RIP OFF spelt with a capital R-I-P O-F-F
