Veggie venting! Bunny fur!
Well it was, but all of the fun got sort of stomped on by one rude gentleman. No he wasn’t a gentleman! >_<
This wildman with long grey hair happened to own a cute little shop with clothes sorted according to color. In every color.
Needless to say my eyes went "O_O".
Real leather purses were sold there too, reminiscent of vintage movies.
I couldn't purchase those out of principle, however besides that there was only one leather jacket to be seen.
No other animal derived items, just faux fur.
Or so I thought.
I was actually about to pay even when he casually reminded me to wash it with cold water, because of the rabbit fur.
That’s when I laughed.
He threw me a serious look.
I said “You’re kidding right?”.
He continued to stare.
I asked again.
My mom said “Uhm I don’t think he’s kidding.”
Apparently not all of the items were faux fur.
The conversation ended (or so I thought at least) with me saying “I’m really sorry but I can’t buy that!”, followed by my mom saying “I feel you should mark real fur more clearly”.
I felt very creeped out, almost having bought a rabbit to wear on my head.
(Especially because I was hanging around with rabbits only this morning)
In my head I do think he should’ve stated it more clearly.. in a store full of faux fur, I feel you don’t just place a rabbit fur hat.
Fur is even worse than leather in my book.
Maybe that’s just me.
Then again I need to take my responsibility too and always check the tags, as I do with shoes. They did also sell leather after all..
I would’ve left it at that, however he decided to follow us out of the store with the beret in his hand to yell “You EAT rabbits, don’t you?!” with a gorgeously vicious French accent.
My mom was very quick to say “Actually we don’t!”
He then threw a spectacular handfling, whipped his chin up into the air and said “Ha. Of course YOU don’t.”
Turned around with the beret and walked back into the store.
I was baffled, still am even.
Just by the way he acted!
Do you think he was right to be annoyed like that or isn’t this just in my head?
