Slice of Life

1. Well, this one is disturbing. I was at the local Walmart doing what one does – spending money on things you were so sure you hadn’t needed before you walked through those doors. I was browsing the lingerie section (such as it is in Walmart) and happened upon a mother and son in the same department. I would say the son was about 40, his mom around 65. My boys would rather stand in the middle of traffic than go with me into the ladies underwear section. Oh the horror! But this son, in the midst of the ladies dept, calls out “Hey, Ma, they have this Triumph bra in a DD. Should fit you nicely”. I think I threw up a little in my mouth. Just too…….weird. Mind you after reading this article, nothing surprises me any more.

2. I had to be on the bus this morning to go to a meeting. Usually the bus drivers are surly and unresponsive here – well that has been my experience anyway. The 535 bus driver this morning was the opposite. Every person that got on to ride his bus was given a cheery Bonjour! or Good Morning. And then a Merci or Thank You once they paid their fare. He greeted everyone enthusiastically. It totally makes a difference to the morning commute. I am sure people are stressed when they get on the bus – having the driver be welcoming helps. I thanked him as I got off the bus, -he smiled, and wished me a good day!

  1. I really, really wish I hadn’t clicked that link. I feel sick.

  2. I’m trying to think of a HDLZ and the only thing that I can come up with is very weak. One of my neighbors many years ago was an executive at Maidenform and was very interested in ladies undergarments and whether the various sizes were in stock at the stores. Maybe this guy works for Triumph and has an interest in bras? That’s it, I can’t come up with anything better. Shabbat Shalom all.

  3. If I were trying to put a positive spin on the Walmart incident, I’d say either the son was developmentally disabled, or the mother was in the early stages of dementia and didn’t want to admit it, so the son was helping her shop while pretending everything was normal. But it was probably neither of these. It was probably just what it looked like.

  4. He’s probably her primary caregiver and/or he doesn’t care about it. It’s a piece of cloth, and he’s helping her out. I dunno, I guess I don’t see the big deal? It would be totally okay if it were her daughter, but with her son, suddenly, OMG, he’s a perv and it’s SO WEIRD. Seriously. I think the world would be a better place if every man knew about how bras work and what size and everything.

    Maybe I’m weird too, then, I guess…
