Overheard While ... Holiday Shopping at Winners

In the men's shoe section at Winners, a 45-year old-ish woman is talking on her cellphone while holding a pair of sneakers:

Mom: ... you know those shoes your brother wanted? They're canvas sneakers with the rubber on the toe ...? Chuck Browns?


Mom: Converse? Chuck Taylor? Which one?


Mom: Ok - well, these don't say Converse or Chuck Taylor, but they look like what he pointed out.


Mom: I'm not sure - I don't really see a label ... but these look like what Robbie showed me - but the pattern on the canvas is more, you know, punky. I actually think he might like these more than plain black ones.


Mom: Mmm, no. On the outside of the shoe? No, it doesn't say Converse anywhere. Lemme ... ok, it says "Ed Hardy" on it.



Mom: Whoa. Whoa. Ok! That's why I called! How should I know those are "totally disgusting"?


Mom: Fine. I put them down. Your uncool mom promises not to buy them for anyone, ever.

At least that child was looking out for her. My MIL would have recognized the brand AND bought them.

Ed Hardy is the worst! Good on that kid for saving his brother the humiliation.
