Wait...is she referring to Catwoman or to her mother about the "competition".Eeyoow
I thought she was referring to herself as the competition with her mother.Eeyow fer sure.
wait. . .so her mom wears a catwoman suit as well? hot.
To many shy and reserved nerds, the Comic Book Store is like a secret sanctuary where they can truly be themselves.Even if it's, y'know... inappropriate.
So did she want to get a Catwoman suit at all, or did her mom just make an arbitrary ruling in case she ever did?
I dont think I can appreciate this comment without knowing what her.. like.. forty-year-old mom looked like. I dont see how a twenty-something in skintight leather can register as competition, is what I'm saying. Lady needs to hang it up, she's out of her depth.
I'm starting to wonder if people have figured out that you make this site-and are now saying things to get them mentioned on it. People have done stranger things for fame.
come on, anon, gotta have much luv for the milfs ^.^
I'm shocked you have so many female customers in your store.
And, anonymous, it may have been a 30 year old mother and a 14 year old daughter when she wouldn't let her dress up.
@DoctorTarr...You must hang out in the wrong comic shops. I think that probably 25% of the subscription customers at my comic book shop are female; then again, it could be because I am a female, and they feel comfortable here. Also, I have been told that at other shops, male clerks won't even talk to a female customer, either due to the stereotypical inability to speak to females in general, or because they don't understand why she is there. I assure you, females DO read comic books, and some females spend a lot of money on their "fix", just like males do!
I know quite a few women who read comic books, and some of them even read superhero books, which is non-stereotypical I suppose.
wow. . . . @DoctorTarr- Lots of girls read comics now. We are taking over the nerd world.
@DoctorTarr Your Scenario of a 30 year old mother with a 14 year old daughter means that the mother would have been 16 when the girl was born. If your prediction is correct, perhaps wearing a Catwoman suit had something to do with the mothers unwanted teenage pregnancy in the first place. In that case she was just trying to protect her daughter from making the same mistake.
To Anonymous @ 4:29 PM:Yup. I've had experiences with two types of local comic stores: One in which the guys (and gal) who work there are totally awesome, letting us know of the new releases of the characters we're into, holding onto action figures for us before we even know they're out, and generally treating us like valued customers.And the other, in which the 50-something owner speaks to us condescendingly every time we enter, suggesting to us "girly books" and trying to explain to us who various comic people are when we already know who they are. Needless to say... we go to the shop that treats us like actual comic book fans, not "they're girls, so they must be out of their element here". ;)
@Doc You're absolutely right, I completely misread the line. I wouldnt want my thirteen-year-old dressing up like a space hooker either.
