Dressing Room Dupe

Dressing Room Dupe is a story that I’d been planning for awhile.  Sometimes, I just like to play around with stock images and see what cover idea hits me and I write a story around that.  Dupe was just on the back burner for a few months.

What put it over the top was Christmas.  Working retail at Christmas can be an amazing experience if you’re working commission, but it can be a real drag to be stuck at the mall listenning to the same twelve Christmas Carols on a continuous and mind numbing loop while you deal with difficult shoppers and try to achieve the required level of forced merriment.

To that environment I added a confused male shopper trying to find a Christmas gift for his girlfriend and chaos ensued.  Soon the two salesgirls had him in a terrible predicament and he was soon modeling women’s clothing for practically every female employee in the entire mall.

I didn’t set out to write a Christmas story and it really does work for the entire year, but the Christmas setting adds to the humiliation of the experience that our hapless sissy will never forget.
