Gaslight

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.
