I'm not saying it as an insult. The fact of the matyer is that she patronizes a lot of places and products that "regular" people can't afford. The fact that those places and items are exclusive and elitist haven't stopped her from being customer, any.more than it has stopped the rezt of the.rich.and famous. I don't actually object to that but it seems silly not to ackowledge that she is a part of it herself. The big sin on the store clerk's part wad the failure to recognize her as part of the elite.
Oprah's released a new statement basically saying "never mind, I wish I'd never brought it up." Except there's no way she wouldn't have known the attention an accusation like this from Oprah would bring. Sounds like she wasn't expecting the clerk to fight back and wants to try to ignore it now.
I read the clerks version and it seems plausible. I've had clerks and others let me know one item is a better value over a different one, which is what the clerk claims she was trying to do.But with limited English I can see it being misinterpreted.My DD and I were at a place last year and a clerk with limited English skills kept telling us "No, No, this one better for you." We were looking at some handmade jewlry and she was trying to indicate the quality of the stone was better in a different one over the one we initially was looking at.
