Amy knew going to the hardware store in her sundress was a mistake. But she needed sandpaper, and the rest of her clothes were dirty. She would have to take care of that, too, sometime.
To make matters worse, the store was more of a labyrinth than a market. She found a clerk and asked him for directions.
The young man leered at her, and looked down her dress. “Why do you need sandpaper?” he asked.
She was not stupid. “So I can scrape that look off your face.” To his shock, she continued, “Just show me where it is.”
