Yesterday I bought a tuxedo from the least motivated salesman in the history of retail.
Me: "So I guess I'll need some shoes that go well with this."
Salesman: (easing into chair) "Yep, shoes make the man."
Me: "Yeah, it's good to have the right pair, or else the whole suit looks bad."
Salesman: "I know that's right."
(Silence. I stare at my feet. He appears to reminisce about his glory days.)
Me: "So I guess I should try on those shoes now."
Salesman: (slowly lifting out of chair) "Let me get those for you."
