Today, while at my cosmetics job, an elderly lady came up to me asking for a product. I told her we had a smaller size and a larger size for a better deal. She told me she wanted the smaller size because she'd "probably be dead" before she finished that one. I laughed. She was serious. FML

Hey, from what I see, that's a old woman whose still got a good head on her shoulders. She's thinking logically and already come to terms with her own fate after (I'd hope) living a happy and full life.

When I'm that old, that's how I want to be for sure.

33- .....This is cosmetics we are talking about right? How much of a price difference could we be considering here? Less than $30 bucks I would imagine to upgrade from a small tub of moisturizer or base to a large.....?
I mean, perhaps she does want to save the money or not be wasteful, I guess, but it just seems unnecessary to consider trying to save a few bucks of her own money if it'll make her happy. $20 bucks less of her inheritance, split who knows how many different ways shouldn't really matter.
(Maybe I have the wrong idea. Are some cosmetics crazy pricey? As in, hundreds of dollars for paste and such?)

39 - You obviously don't know how much cosmetics can go for. An 8oz jar of rejuvenator can go for over a hundred dollars.

I think it was Coco Chanel (probably wrong there, though) who started marketing perfume that was expensive because woman want to buy the expensive stuff just because it's expensive (her words, not mine).

I don't think you really deserve it, you were just bing nice and accidentally made a mistake; not a huge deal. Though, I guess dearh is a very serious matter >_>

When I was younger I tried selling cookies to an elderly woman... She said "I don't have many years left to enjoy these cookies" then shut the door.

26- I was in the same boat! Except the old lady I spoke to replied "You're no fucking girl scout!"

Bitch, you don't know that! I could just be really fucking butch!

53 - Or as many other people have said, she's realistic. I won't live to see pirates riding unicorns, but I'm not bitter about it. I just accept it for the truth and fact that it is.

Old people have a sense of humor about their imminent demise.

You should have laughed and added, "I guess you shouldn't buy green bananas!" Then, ask her to leave you something in her will.

Well if she goes around talking about dieing all the time then she probably is used to diffrent reactions. I'm sure she wont spend much time being offendend if she is planning on dieing soon.
