37) Eek. This fitting room line is CRAZY.

38) Guess I'll suck it up.

39) OK. This music is great but — does it really have to be this loud?

40) I literally can't even hear myself think.

41) How are these girls in front of me even having a conversation???

42) Oh, wait, they're not. They're just taking selfies.

43) ::peers over girls' shoulders::

44) That's a lot of hashtags.

45) OMG. Are they...sexting??! ::looks away::

46) ::moves to the beat, imagines how cool I'll look at the club in new crop top::

47) ::comes to senses, realizes I haven't been to the club in at least six years::

48) ::imagines how cool I'll look just walking around in new crop top::

49) Oh man, I can't wait to see how awesome all of these are gonna look.

50) Oh. Did I actually think I'd fit into a size small?

51) Did I actually think I'd fit into a size medium?

52) Where am I gonna wear this neon-yellow lace tube top again?


53) I wish there was a stool in here or something so my bag wouldn't get so dusty.

54) I think the person in the next fitting room is actually having a physical fight with the hook that's connected to mine.

55) Woo! Four outta eight ain't bad. Can't wait to ring these up.

56) Ooo sure, I'll throw in this sparkly nail polish!


58) Yeah, yeah, I know the return policy.

59) Must be so annoying to have to ask every single customer if they're aware of the return policy.

60) Wait... Am I aware of the return policy?

61) Whatever.

62) I love you, Forever 21.
