Funny story: A woman brought in a (i shit you not) leopard skin coat-which was over 50 years old, so not TECHNICALLY illegal. The fur was simply beautiful, and I told the woman who owned it that it was "Beautiful, but really kind of sad to see," to which she replied "why would you say that?" and I said "because it's from such a beautiful animal that's now dead." (do I know what to say to fur owners or what?)
then she said the most brilliant thing i have ever heard: "You think this is beautiful but sad? Honey, if you ran into this thing in the wild it wouldn't think twice about brutally killing you" to which I should have replied "yeah, maybe that's true, but I haven't seen that many leopards walking around africa wearing human skin coats"
Ah, time working for schumacher. I couldn't have asked for a weirder, more uncomfortable place to work... Thank god they are "evacuating" for good.
