Jan 5th 2012 7:01PM You are quite correct.In any large business, the people who establish the budgets for payroll have never faced a customer, never seen a line out the door on a busy day, never considered how much additional business could have been transacted--and customers satisfied and saved for the company--if there had been adequate staffing. They are, as my father used to say "bean counters." They crunch numbers and balance books and seek higher profits--but at what expense? I asked my district manager once (retail) if I could have an additional cashier for 4 peak hours on a busy Saturday ($32 in payroll) and she told me no. I said I thought we could do an additional $500 in those 4 hours if I had better staffing. She said that corporate wouldn't allow it. We had lines at the register and not enough floor coverage, but damn it, we were within payroll. But how much business was lost--and how many customers left rather than face the line? SO shortsighted...
May 26th 2011 12:09PM I found they had tendancy to shift around and become obvious. Not likely I would ever wear one again, but my trendy twentysomething daughter might if they become a big accessory item. She works in fashion, so...
May 20th 2011 7:31PM I'm just speculating, but I would imagine these shoes were designed as a marketing prop--see how much press you can get for $180,000 shoes? And of course, the value of the stones is there to be removed from the shoes and refashioned into jewelry to sell in another way. Both Chopard and Zanotti are getting internet and other media mentioning them for free...
May 13th 2011 2:53PM Hey, I like your answer--as a woman closing in on 60, I think I'll go for the skinny dip idea!
May 13th 2011 1:41AM I just love all the comments about how old she looks--as if any of us escape getting older! You act like women shouldn't even leave the house if they no longer fit your idea of what is beautiful--what, under 30? Beauty is about who you are, where your life has taken you, your wisdom and grace, not about the fleeting lovliness of unlined skin or perky body (anybody can be pretty at 22, it takes a lot more effort and energy to be beautiful at 50 or more!)As a culture, we negate the value of any woman who is not "perfect"--thin, unwrinkled, thick,glossy hair--and then we laugh and poke fun at those who attempt to "fix" the aging process with (sometimes bad)surgery or other means. Would anyone say such things if their own attractiveness was on display? The anonymity of the internet makes it so easy to be judgemental...
May 13th 2011 1:23AM Hopefully by going public with this information, she will bring law enforcement down on herself--what kind of a sick nut does this to their child?
May 10th 2011 1:23PM I like it!
Apr 30th 2011 10:13AM I was going to comment on this exact thing--before I clicked on "comments" and saw that 75% of the comments already written were about just that! It's clearly just laziness on the part of "reporters"--the writer just pulled up an online catalog and downloaded pictures of clothing that illustrated what they wanted to say. Actually doing a story that involved before and afters of average-sized women would have been too much trouble/expense.
Anyway,I chose you to "reply" to because I liked the way you expressed yourself--have a great day!
Mar 27th 2011 4:13PM ONE of the things women are put on this earth for is to be mothers who teach their sons to love and respect women--obviously you had a really lousy mother. Or maybe you're just 12 and a really slow learner.
Mar 13th 2011 10:05AM Or, you could just keep your hair clean and cut in a style that works with its texture--curly or staight, whatever--and get on with your life. Who has the time and money to search out and use all these different products and then figure out what to do everyday based on the weather? Probably the same women who shop endlessly for shoes...Be authentic, just be you. Be clean, shave a little, use a little mascara (we pretty much all need that!) and some gloss, put on something pretty but comfortable and smile a lot. Care about other people, look them in the eye. Have someting interesting to say, but spend a lot of time listening. That's all you need to be absolutely beautiful.
