Distressed Jeans

Dear Lora,

I went to a girlfriends “trunk show” and she insisted I try a pair of jeans on.  They really weren’t my style and I wasn’t sure they were even my size, but I decided to try them on to make her happy.  To my horror, as I attempted to pull them up, the zipper split at the seam – sideways!  I told the hostess, but still feel really guilty.  Should I buy the damaged jeans?

Dear Distressed Jeans,

No!  This falls under the “price of doing business” category.  These things happen.  Your girlfriend who’s dealing the denim knows that, if she doesn’t, she shouldn’t be selling anything.   To me, it sounds like she should have made you feel better about the busted blue jeans.  A heartfelt, “I’m so sorry” will suffice.  If you just can’t move on, and feel like you MUST do something, you can offer to pay for the repair.  I say, zip your mouth, otherwise you may be opening your wallet, purchasing a pair of pants you didn’t want to begin with.
