I found out something very important yesterday. Thought I would share with y'all.
Tip #1: Wear short dress and high heels to feed store.
Yes, do it! You will be amazed at the service you receive! I wasn't thinkin' clearly when I got dressed for work yesterday morning. I failed to think about me going to Tractor Supply to get some donkey supplies.
The husband bugged me until I allowed him to take a picture before I left the house that morning. So that's why you have this...
So I walk into TSC and head to the back. Grab one of those feed carts. I heard a guy say something to another. I'm sure they thought who is this lady and what the heck is she doing in here. I went over to pick up some range cubes and they only had one bag left. I bent over to grab it and the manager hurried up beside me. He told me I was dressed to nicely to load the bag, he should do it. I told him there was a hole in the bag. He said he would discount it for me. Really? How nice of you. He also got tape out and fixed the hole, then loaded it onto my cart.
He followed me around so I had him load a bag of all stock feed and get me some wormer. Why not, huh? He was being so helpful! He told me to be sure and tell the guys up front to help me out. Whatever!
I checked out and of course was asked if I needed help with the feed. No, I can manage. Geez, I unload tons (actual tons) of feed by myself. I swagger my lil high heeled self outside to the truck. Bet they didn't know I was in a filthy dirty truck! I pull the cart up to the truck and notice the people in the truck next to me staring. I put the tailgate down and hear "Honey, you just wait, he'll help you!" At that, I grab a sack of feed and throw it in the truck. Poor lil man didn't even make it around his truck before I had the first sack loaded. The couple looked at me in shock. The lady said "Well, just like I tell him about our granddaughters, country girls are strong." I laugh and tell them I usually don't go to the feed store in heels. She smiled and said, "yes, those heels did throw us." Then I bent down and threw the other bag of feed in the back.
The whole experience was hilarious. If they only knew the "real" me! I go in that store all the time and they never once ask if I need help. Last time, they had a tall pallet of cubes and I was on my tippy toes trying to get bags off the top. Did anyone come over, no!
So girls, use your assets! Put those skirts and heels on and head to the feed store. You'll get great service and discounts!
