People need to honestly stop being so sensitive these days, what some random sales associate says to you shouldn’t be news. Ya it was rude…well let me know if anyone has ever been to a mall without having a snotty experience at some point in their life.

With everything else going on in this world it’s sad that things like this get any attention.

Also this is far from being “verbally” attacked. It’s called rude people.. welcome to planet earth.

As much as I think it was out of line for the girl to say, it wasn’t said directly to the couple themselves.

She was simply commenting on the fact her boyfriend was already saving up. It was rude don’t get me wrong but it’s not like she said “OMG I can’t believe YOU are buying this as a E ring or wedding ring.” That would have been grounds for something different.

Like PP’s have said, it was rude but we encounter rude people every day. Even on the bee lol.

I think that the comment made by the sales associate was way out of line! During my ring shopping, I visited a jewelry store and sparked up a wonderful conversation with the manager. He told me that he can always tell when a man is going to run back to the store a few months after getting engaged to sell back the ring at half price because he realized what a terrible mistake he made in proposing marriage to such a superficial wretch.

That manager told me that he has watched women bully their Fiance into purchasing a bigger ring than he can afford and the wedding industry is total proof of that. At the end of the day, (most times) the wedding isn’t even about the couple! It’s about a competition of who can throw the biggest party for the most money. It’s all about showing off. I understand that some people have bigger budget than others — and that’s fine. But, this about your character.

I know plenty of people who can afford very expensive things, but they would never be so low class as to say it out loud, and to crap on somebody else’s happiness. Shame on the sales associate and shame on anybody that does not see her actions as deplorable, and fitting for termination from her employment.
