The Queen's Meme #15 ~ The Shopping Madness Meme



Welcome to The Queen's Tuesday Meme #15
Sometimes silly. Sometimes serious.
Always fun!
Step out of the box. Be creative.
Use your imagination.
No one's answers are quite like yours.

This meme is called
The Shopping Madness Meme (aka The Naked Mannequin Saga)



1. What is favorite item to shop for and why?

2. Quality vs. Price. Will you buy off-brand replicas at a discount store or must you have the real thing? Why or why not?



3. Have you ever asked a sales clerk to remove something from display if it is the last one in the store? Tell us what special something would make you strip the clothes off a mannequin.
(which begs the question...Are all mannequins born naked?)


4. I really don't care if a guy goes shopping with me. I'm in my own zone and always have a plan. Are you an alone-shopper or would you like to have company?

5. Have you ever done anything other than actually try on clothes in a dressing room? (I have no idea why this question followed the previous one. Ahem.)


6. Do you like or do you get annoyed when salesclerks and store management follows you around asking "May I help you?" a million times? (I have no idea why this question followed the previous one.)



7.. Create your very own store-brand name. (ie; Toys 'R Us, WalMart) What would YOUR establishment's name be?

Place the name on this sign. When we are finished with this meme, I'll put them all together and we'll have our very own shopping mall.
If you don't know how to write on this from your computer, go to imagechef.com and find it in the "signs" category. It's simple.


And please, for the of all things plastic, stay out of the dungeon. It's almost Christmas!

The Anonymous Player -

1. What is favorite item to shop for and why?

Generally, I don't like shopping. The parting of money in exchange for goods holds no inherent pleasure for me. Owning the goods, maybe, and anticipating owning the goods, perhaps,
but not usually buying. But, having said that, and given that of all shopping, I hate grocery shopping most of all, it is perhaps odd that the shopping I most enjoy is in a supermarket, if I am shopping
for ingredients for a meal that I will be preparing for friends. Shopping for holidays is probably a close second, but I do that online.


2. Quality vs. Price. Will you buy off-brand replicas at a discount store or must you have the real thing? Why or why not? This is binary for me. I will tend to go either for the
very best thing I can possibly afford, or the very cheapest example I can find. Which I choose depends very much on the circumstances.



3. Have you ever asked a sales clerk to remove something from display if it is the last one in the store? Tell us what special something would make you strip the clothes off a mannequin.
(which begs the question...Are all mannequins born naked?) Yes I have. It was a tie. Strip a mannequin? I'd do it without a second thought if it was wearing something I wanted.


4. I really don't care if a guy goes shopping with me. I'm in my own zone and always have a plan. Are you an alone-shopper or would you like to have company? If I am buying for me, I
positively hate having anyone try to influence my decision at buying time, although I might have sought their advice beforehand. If I am shopping for someone else, a companion can
sometimes be a good idea if I am not sure of my target recipient's taste.


5. Have you ever done anything other than actually try on clothes in a dressing room? (I have no idea why this question followed the previous one. Ahem.) Not yet, but you never know your luck.


6. Do you like or do you get annoyed when salesclerks and store management follows you around asking "May I help you?" a million times? (I have no idea why this question followed the previous one.)
I'm a "Don-t call me, I'll call you" person. If I need help I'll ask for it. But i'm much more prepared to accept that I might benefit from help these days, than I used to be.

7.. Create your very own store-brand name. (ie; Toys 'R Us, WalMart) What would YOUR establishment's name be? Rotten Games: Evil toys for bad children :)

I haven't had a chance to visit as often as I'd like lately! Writing a book is time consuming business. :) I hope you have a merry Chickmas and a Flappy New Year! :)
