I was talking to good friend of mine last week who told me his “Pretty Woman” story (the scene where she gets laughed out of the store).
Anyhow, he walked into the store dressed how he often is – in overalls or working man’s gear.
“…You do realise how much these boots cost?”
He was looking at the boots when the Sales Assistant came up to him with a look of disdain and said:
“Can I help you? You do realise how much these boots are, don’t you?”
The thing about my mate is that he’s a pretty knockabout sort of guy. Not a scholar by any means.
Looks a bit rough even. But he’s a lovely fellow who enjoys working at manual jobs.
And he’s worth about $5 million.
We all do make assumptions based on first impressions. We shouldn’t but we do.
