My uncomfortable conversation at the London Textile Company...
Me: Hi, do you sell houndstooth?
Him: Yes, we sell houndstooth. What kind?
Me: Just wondering if you sell more houndstooth now than a few years ago.
Him: No. Same amount. Very popular. Why?
Me: I hate it. Can I buy a square foot of it?
Him: We sell by the meter.
Me: Can I buy a meter?
Him: No. We don't sell just a meter. You need more to make a jacket.
Me: Oh, I'm not making a jacket.
Him: What are you making?
Me: Never you mind! Never you mind!
