Everything I needed to know I learned in retail clothing sales

And then I stumbled on it. The torn notebook page, blue lines bled into the determined but childish script:

Sales Philosophy.
1) Acknowledge. Smile and make eye contact and say hello; then look busy.

I think this could really work for me, as well as for the bored young Bootlegger employee who penned it.

She goes on:

"You look fantastic."
"You will really enjoy this garment-boot-dress etc."
"It reflects your personality very well."
Watch their response and then proceed with the closing technique that applies best.

Crafty devils.
