Last night I went shopping during my dinner break and found a perfectly fitting suit on clearance for $20. As I was putting it in the buggy, I noticed that the skirt was priced separately, but both peices said "2 piece outfit." Well, I didn't want to pay more than $20, because I had just returned $23 worth of merchandise and you all know me- I believe in sticking to my budget. On the other hand, the jacket was perfectly tailored to my shape and that's REALLY hard to find. I felt the tugging of the Spirit on this issue, so I knew I was going to have to pay up. Side note: Yes, I'm the kind of person who gets home, discovers I didn't pay for something, and goes back to the store to pay for it. Hasn't happened in a long time, though.

Anyway: so I get to the counter, and the guy doesn't even look at the skirt. I try to point it out to him. Not because I'm a Super-Saint or anything, but because I didn't want to jeapordize my annointing.

In his best "Im not trying to make you feel dumb but you are" voice he patiently explained to me that they were a set and that the skirt was not priced. I pointed it out to him again and even as he was holding the price tag for the skirt, with a different price on it, he repeated, this time in a "look, woman, are you crazy" voice that they were not priced separately. I took my blessing and rolled on! He didn't have to twist my arm. Thank you Lord for my little shopping blessing!
