Wasn’t expecting the husband to get anything for this year’s birthday considering the bill he spent recently – new phone, bag, trip, Tiffany’s. So today was totally unexpected when I thought he was doing his ‘usual window shopping’ walking into various shops, asking silly things as his way to learn more about the various products.
He had me at...”shall we get it?” when he asked the salesperson at Cartier to show us the Cartier Lanieres Ring (which we saw & tried on some 2 weeks ago at the same shop). I got to admit, the ring was absolutely exquisite and a beauty. And it was difficult to resist. But I was also quite aware of what the husband had splurged on recently and told myself I didn’t need it. Didn’t help that the salesperson attending to us was a total sweetheart and a gem. His service was the best I’ve encountered of all the Cartier shops I’ve been to (ever since Nat 1 has been encouraging me to step in and try various rings a month ago) and if we were ever going to purchase anything, he deserved the deal.
“No”, I said for the 3rd time. “We’ll take it”, he replied. “…unless you want another bag instead.” And of course I rather this then just another bag!
