Things I don't understand part eleventy squillion

In the Cath Kidston shop in Bicester today there were 2 security guards at the door. How nasty were they expecting middle aged woman deprived of retro floral household porn to get?

Feck, even last Tuesday this place only had 1 security guard.

She doesn't have guards on her shop in T Wells. Bicester must be a dangerous place.

I bet middle age ladies have been putting one floral print item amongst the duck print items just to annoy the staff, but it's been going on for weeks so the shop have finally taken action.

We don't have a Cath Kidston store here (that I know of) - so I Googled it. Of course they need two security guards. That stuff is worth far more than Tiffany's any day!

They weren't actually 'on duty' but rather waiting to carry their Mum's bags when she came out of the shop....at those prices you'd feel mugged! LOL

Well, you just can't get the customers these days.

S - I know you can't take me anywhere !

A - it's the outlet store you see, that explains it

L - ah, you are so wise for one so young :)

Gigi - it's very popular here and judging by the amount of Japanese tourists in there yesterday it obviously appeals to middle aged women worldwide !

Taz - I know it's expensive but this is the outlet shop, that's why I was there. Laura 3rd commenter down and I went to the Glasgow shop in the summer, the one in Princes square but we didn't buy anything because it's full price, I'm mean and she's a student. I go to the Bicester one and spend a fortune because it's cheaper, the psychology of my spending!!!

EM - I lower the tone most places I go

Mud - they have your picture up behind the till

T - only if your head is cold! the romantic/commitment back story is a familiar one to yours! x

Ayak - oh I'm catching you up pretty fast !

Were you arrested shortly after the photo was taken outside Tiffany & Co - that security guard looks mighty bored and it would have given him something to do!

auntiegwen said...

Diney -nope they always let me in even though I did drool quite a lot in the shop!

They must have gotten burned last year at this time and vowed it wouldn't happen again???
