Recently at our ski shop -
A woman was buying new ski boots and socks from me after trying to ski in her boy friend's, friends boots with 2 pair of rag wool socks to take up volume.
Girl: Justin's boots were killing my feet. Is this how ski boots feel?
Boyfriend: Everyone's boots hurt, its a part of skiing.
Girl: This woman at the store says that the boots are three sizes too big and the friction of wearing two pair of rag wool socks is causing extra friction. I'm buying new boots and socks
Boyfriend: Don't buy those socks. I told you these people would talk you into buying stuff you don't need. Why can't you wear Justin's boots? They were good enough for him and he's an expert skier.
Dude - Way to set your girlfriend up for success!
Perhaps I should have advised her to find another boyfriend.
I did give her a demo voucher to get some appropriate demo skis because her new boots wouldn't work with the bindings on Justin's Pocket Rockets.
