    17 Awkward Moments We Desperately Try To Avoid While Shopping

    "Excuse me, do you have this in another size?"

    1. Asking someone who is not a salesperson for help.

    2. Setting off the alarm even though you didn't actually steal anything.

    3. Realizing you're the only person in the entire store, and knowing the salespeople are circling you like sharks.

    4. Accidentally tearing off a tag while trying on clothes.

    5. Having the saleswoman ask you if you need a "larger" size?

    6. Getting judged by the salespeople for clearly not being able to afford anything in the store.

    Because frankly it's just:

    7. Knocking over all the fancy displays at the store.

    8. Having the salesperson tell you you look great in something when you know you look terrible.

    9. Hearing the dreaded ripping and popping of whatever you're trying on.

    10. Having the security guard think you stole something you walked in with because the store happens to sell it too.

    11. Getting caught being greedy at the sample counter.

    12. Running your credit card only to find it's been DECLINED.

    13. Walking into Victoria's Secret and being asked repeatedly if you want a "bra fitting."

    14. Having your bags break on your way out of the store.

    15. Only realizing you forgot your wallet after they've rung up all your stuff.

    16. And finally, impulse buying everything on the shelves by the cash register...

    ... and then immediately regretting everything afterward.

    17. DAMN YOU, TARGET DOLLAR AISLE... damn you!
