Have you ever been prejudged when you went to buy something by the way you were dressed?


Have you ever stopped by a store or car dealership for a significant purchase and been prejudged by the way you were dressed or the car you were driving? Maybe it was an unexpected stop after working in the garden or a rough day at work, or maybe your like me and cut offs, a t-shirt, and comfy sneakers are the norm. Has someone ever ignored you or talked down to you by the way you were dressed? If so would you mind sharing?

    That's pretty funny about Johnny Carson and sounds like something he would do.

    Haha ... I can imagine the religious and spiritual men hiding behind the counter not wanting to fall into temptation ... hard work. I say that as one who has been practicing celibacy and abstinence for over a decade ...

    That is just so crazy and in sales a huge "no no" where I use to work. Prejudging people is like biting off the arm that feeds you if your in sales.

    Wow I guess it happens everywhere. What those clerks don't realize is those kids could have had parents that were billionaires or grown up to be one themselves.

    That's one thing that really bothers me I guess because it's happened to me.
