A gentleman who worked in my office went into a jewelry store to buy diamond earrings for his wife's Christmas gift. He was wearing jeans, a button down shirt, with a pullover sweater. I will mention here that even in jeans, he was always immaculately dressed in clothes I couldn't afford. The salesperson took one look at him and said something to the effect that he couldn't afford to buy what they were selling and implying that he should leave. He asked for the manager, told manager that he was buying diamond earrings for his wife, was prepared to spend $$$$ for them, but that the store had lost his business because of salesperson's remark. He then walked out and went to the mall's other jewelry store, directly across from the original store, to make his purchase.
