Harpo nailed this one.
Me [casually]: Margaret, a customer yesterday was impugning your reputation.
Margaret: What are you talking about?
I tell her the story about the studded jeans and jacket.
Margaret [snorts]: I know exactly who you’re talking about. Curly hair? Dana Buchman jeans? Her mom shops here – name’s Georgia. She tried to return that stuff with me and I wouldn’t take it back.
Me: She said she was going to come back when you were working.
Margaret: Ha. She’s avoiding me. She knows I won’t even take it back, much less re-sell it to her.
[twenty minutes later]
Margaret: Would you like a muffin? I baked some this morning.
