Because we are a high-class establishment, the in-house measuring tape at Banana Republic is broken off at the 2.5″ mark, so that if you’re making something 33 inches high, it really has to be 35.5. Nothing but the best. We were explaining this to our newest manager the other day when I cracked myself up.
Michael: Yeah, so it’s just two and a half inches too short.
Kristi: Dontcha hate when that happens?
ZING! And the day was downhill from there.
