Friend of a friend takes a dress into the changing rooms.
Assistant says to friend that there is no point in her trying on said dress as you had to be slim and confident to wear it, and the person trying on the dress was not.
WTAF! How dare she! Not the sort of place for those with low self esteem.

This has nothing to do with the thread but Greenkit just reminded me of it.

I went to the market last week and there was a poorly handwritten sign on a stall, saying 'Clothes for the lager ladies' grin

I really think if you post something online you need to be aware that anyone can read that and do what they want with the information. More and more I see stuff on here and facebook and cringe as it's clear that people write stuff almost as if there are no consequences.

You're massively overreacting OP. Ridiculous. Was your story actually true? Surely you'd be glad that this was brought to the company's attention? confused

hmm-don't post name of shop on public forum if you are then going to be arsey about it...

Take no notice Dawndonna, don't let this upset you. brew

Ashoething Sun 30-Jun-13 12:55:22

Oh right so you can just email mhhq and have any thread deleted now when you decide it it no longer suits your agenda? Riiiight. I am sorry for your home life troubles op but perhaps if a thread of so little consequence in the big scheme of things is making you this ill you should consider a break from mn?

Their website is awful.

carlywurly Sun 30-Jun-13 13:54:47

Their website needs proof reading for rogue apostrophes. <helpful>

viva no offence taken, I was actually in there looking for a present for MIL grin

OP I don't understand why you are so upset?

This thread has left me a tad confuddled.

If this genuinely happened then the owner/manager should know about it - and if their name has been mentioned negatively on a public forum they have a right to reply - espif it is to come and publicly apologise...

Of course there my be issues if what was reported wasn't exactly how it happened....

ZZZenagain Sun 30-Jun-13 15:53:28

I am sorry your thread has gone this way Dawn.

usualsuspect Sun 30-Jun-13 16:03:13

Someone emailed the shop?To tell them about this thread?
Bloody hell, I can see why Dawndonna is pissed off.

usualsuspect Sun 30-Jun-13 16:07:10

I think it's bloody stupid that someone took it upon themselves to email the shop on OPS behalf.

Why the hell would you do that?

insancerre Sun 30-Jun-13 16:15:31

it was a pretty low thing of the op to do in the first place though
to name the shop
it's not as if it happened to the op, anyway
I think the shop have every right to know about this thread
it could damage their business
and for what?
a second-hand story

usualsuspect Sun 30-Jun-13 16:22:04

Posters name and shame on MN all the time.

I've never known anyone email the shop before though.

If she hadn't named the shop,the thread thread would have been full of 'name and shame' posts

insancerre Sun 30-Jun-13 16:28:21

I am all for naming and shaming when the need arises
this thread doesn't sit well with me
a friend of a friend?
hmm

usualsuspect Sun 30-Jun-13 16:32:28

Someone sneaking behind OPS back doesn't sit well with me,either.

Posters could have raised their concerns on the thread imo.

ItsAllGoingToBeFine Sun 30-Jun-13 16:36:18

The person who emailed the shop did no wrong. This is a public internet forum. And it is unfair to try and ruin someone's business behind their back.

The OP had no reason to post the name other than to try and damage the shops business. Why on earth would it not be reasonable to warn the shop.

Ashoething Sun 30-Jun-13 16:39:06

So I see this threae is still here...

Ashoething Sun 30-Jun-13 16:39:43

Thread.damn phone.

usualsuspect Sun 30-Jun-13 16:41:19

Name of shop has been deleted though, so you can all stop wringing your hands.

Ashoething Sun 30-Jun-13 16:44:19

No hand wringing here usual. They haven't deleted the name of the shop from our memories though have they?hmm I still fail to see why the op got so arsey about it?

usualsuspect Sun 30-Jun-13 16:49:19

I would have got arsey too, if posters didn't like the naming they should have said on thread.

Not sent a sneaky email first.

usualsuspect Sun 30-Jun-13 16:51:07

Bloody hell, people slag off shops all the time on here.

I'm not sure why anyone thought this shop deserved a warning.
