    I have not been in a dressing stall for many years. But remember well this First World “problem”. 😀

    • Isabel Gibson says:

      Barbara – 🙂 Yes, the choice/superfluity inherent in these labels — indeed, in having rooms in which to try things on at all — is a luxury.

      • barbara carlson says:

        As a marketing manager, I would not give a third option. Tomorrow is like saying, “I’ll call you….”

        • Isabel Gibson says:

          Barbara – I get it, and that’s part of why it’s so good. They use a “soft no” label to allow for the reality that not everything you try on will suit.

    What an innovative yet simple way of catering to customers!

    • Isabel Gibson says:

      Judith – IKR? Clever – it’s cheap (I expect), or relatively so, and yet it adds a lot of value.

  3. Genius. And so simple. I see that I organize my life that way, but my “tomorrow” category may be somewhat delusional.

    • Isabel Gibson says:

      Laurna – Hahaha. Yes, I expect the time-management gurus use something similar for tasks/activities. Not a bad construct. And “tomorrow” is so much gentler than “not a chance” even though the latter might be more honest.

    Wow! Just realized how long it’s been since I’ve been in a try-on room. They don’t have fitting rooms at Costco.

    • Isabel Gibson says:

      Tom – Interesting, because Costco does sell clothes. The highlight of my career in other languages was learning how to ask for a change-room in German on a trip through there in 1970.

  5. Mary Gibson says:

    It’s almost as good as the linen company that thought to attach labels (i.e., ‘short end’) to their fitted sheets, thus solving another ‘first world’ problem.

    • Isabel Gibson says:

      Mary – 🙂 Barring that labelling innovation, I think all sheets should come with length-wise stripes. Maybe I’ll petition my MP.
