I had one of those coulda, shoulda, woulda moments today, and I felt it was appropriate to discuss with the rest of the world because we have all been in the situation.
I went into a shop that I regularly visit, I was distracted by sales and pretty colours. So, naturally I begin to look at all the bright coloured items. While I am searching, a rather attractive male specimen comes over to assist me. We chat, you know how it is, trivial things mostly. There is a moment there that I could have said, if your free after work give me a call (which I already knew he was free from our conversation).
But, I missed the moment. He serves me at the counter and away I go, destined to be back to pay off my lay-by.
When I get in the car I buzz my friend, who is quite good looking and works at Ben Sherman, we discuss etiquette in this situation.
It is easy if it is a shop that you rarely go into, but if you have a lay-by pending the approach may need to change. However, this may work in your favour because you have an excuse to visit and check the vibe.
My friend and I came up with a game plan. Next time I go in the shop, if he is working then great we will chat. Otherwise, I figure I will ask the other guys if he is single. And then take it from there.
Meanwhile, we are going to go shopping and practice the shop assistant ask out.
