Sometimes people can be patronising.
and by people, i mean men of a certain age.
Being a florist, you get patronised quite a bit.
Yesterday was a corker. I actually wanted to smack him in the mouth. Really hard. Like in the movies.
I didn't. Obvs.
It made me wonder, is it me? Do other florists get it too?
Is that why some people call themselves floral designers/ floral stylists or "floral artists"?
Are people embarrassed to be classed as a florist?
Said man wasn't a customer, he actually wanted me to do him a favour.
I will admit sometimes i play up to the stereo type and then surprise them later by winning an argument over Middle Eastern politics.
