Try This On For Size (limerick)

Updated on January 31, 2015

I helped women pick clothes they wore

Such service they’d not seen before

Just one little quirk

Wore this clothing clerk

That I didn’t work for that store

      I think Anjili summed it up perfectly -- as with all of your wonderful limericks..."brief but potent." :-)

      Quite a good one. Brief but potent. Thanks for the hint it passes through

      Helping the customers to dress up might lead to a dressing down LOL :-))

      I guess random kindness is not always appreciated.

      You could find yourself in jailhouse culture initiated.
