Measured Love

A customer came in last night, looking hurried. Rushed.

He wore a casual T inside with a black blazer, matched with black pants. Has a David Bowie look, and was holding a BMW car key.

Show me your best perfume.

Who's it for?

It's my daughter's birthday. *shook his head*
I forgot. It's a last minute thing. What's the most expensive one you've got?

How old is she? What does she like?

23. I don't know. What do you have? Something expensive.

HHmm.... gave him a sample of Paris Hilton.

Paris Hilton? No no no no no! She's cheap! I had to laugh at this comment. How true!
What about this one, White Diamond? Sounds expensive.

No, she won't like that. It's for more matured women. *Smiled*

Oh....

Looked around... sampled a few.....

What's this?

Gucci Envy. I am wearing it. It's nice, sweet and powdery kind of scent.

How much is it?

$170.00

Good, good. Can you wrap it up for me?

Sure.

He would've gotten the most expensive one if we have it. Doesn't even know what his daugther likes. Busy busy man.

Rich man, poor father.

*Ps. If you are wondering what other kind of perfume I have at home. Not many. But I get to sample the testers at the shop. This way I have lots!

Well, at least he got her something although it's last minute. The daughter doesn't have to know that. And wow, that is expensive.

I've got an ok amount of perfumes which I have never finish even one of them before. I gave some away. Seldom use now.
