Though this topic is not directly design related, I do feel that it is important. I believe a lady should be classy and lovely, no matter where she goes, who she sees or talks to—whether it is in the library, boutique, or the supermarket. I am grateful that my mother taught me to be respectful of others, particularly my elders. I love Audrey Hepburn's class and flair and often look to her for guidance in many situations...thus leading to my question, something that has been bothering me for some time, and I hope you might be able to help.
There have been instances where I have been in a lineup or at a counter paying for my purchase or service, and the person behind me has either (a) stood right beside me at the counter or (b) is so close behind me that if I were to turn around, I would bump right into them!
More recently, I was at the spa paying for my hair appointment, making future appointments and inquiries, and had a lady 30 years or so my senior, stand right beside me at the counter, as if she were with me. I turned to her, surprised, and said "oh, hello" as if to let her know that I felt slightly uncomfortable. The lineup was clearly a good two feet behind me, however, she paid no heed to my polite response to her lack of tact. Have you ever experienced this frustration? Friends, do you have any suggestions on what to say, or how to deal with this? I could really use some advice! /image link/
