Why is my mom so mean?

Location: Stanford Shopping Center

Specific Location: Burberry @ Stanford Shopping Center

Time: 3:?? PM

Event: Alleged Asians Fighting over Quilted Coats/30% off Sale at Burberry

I Ran into an old friend from Berkeley who informed me that Asians were pillaging Burberry and one had ripped a jacket out of her hand so I obviously needed to go see carnage for myself. Since my mom falls into the category of interested in Burberry sale Asian moms, she suggested going into Burberry even before I told her about what was going on. In we stroll, no fights in sight, but in front of every mirror are Asian women trying on the same quilted jacket in different colors. Then I spot the lace pre-collection Burberry Prorsum short trench. OHHH its sooo cute...and they had it in my size!!! No one had thought about looking at it which is why when I pulled it out and tried it on (and not to be a bitch but...)the sale woman was like "OMG, that is so cute on you," then another one of the associates whispered what size is that in her ear...obviously going to use the employee discount to buy it...since my mom didn't want to buy it for me.

I spent the rest of the day wanting to throw a temper tantrum but since I am a lady...and totally beyond the temper tantrum in public on most occasions....I just muttered under my breath how mean an Asian mom my mom was and how I wished I was Taiwanese because Taiwanese moms buy their daughters everything they want.
Note*: Judging by the photos alone, that coat is really whatever, not worth throwing temper tantrums about but in person, it is soo much nicer. The piping isn't as harsh, the length is perfect, and the sleeves are slim cut and divine.

Another Note*: I'm only kidding. I really love my mom even though she's Chinese and hates buying me luxurious things. She's not that mean. She makes up for the lack of Burberry trench coats with packs of rice crackers and green tea.

  1. That trench is definitely better looking in person.
