Shopper Exposé

Regarding the topic of a couple previous posts, Shopping and Stripping in the Sunshine and Shopping nude?, namely people who insist on pulling apart the curtains when I'm trying on clothes, exposing my more-or-less naked self to the entire shop.

You people are really starting to get on my nerves!

Is it them or is it me? Why has this just started happening?

At one shop today I'd just got my skirt above my butt, which was sticking out towards the curtains, when someone pulls them apart and looks at me like she couldn't understand it was really possible for someone to be in there, I mean, I didn't scream "I'm here, I'm here!" when she was standing in front of them, how could she know the room was occupied? ...apart from the fact that the curtains were actually closed, that is...

The Sandman told me it seems to be on fashion in the Netherlands to have sex in dressing rooms of various shops, all the sales clerks had caught someone red handed (or red faced which seems to be a more likely assumption).

That would never work for me. I would be caught before I'd even get the clothes off the guy. Or myself. That happens half the time already.

Urbandictionary on Expose:


To expose. To go naked in front of people you don't know. Depending on who you are, this may be a frequent experience.

"That woman's exposing herself!"
"Didn't you do human bio in high school, you nob!? That ain't no woman!"

    Well, you once told me you're quiet and people tend not to notice you. Maybe that's your problem in the dressing rooms as well? Maybe people expect to notice some kind of activity behind the curtains if they're occupied.

    I know people should take the hint that the curtains are actually closed. But it is a fact that some stupid people tend to close the curtains of a dressing room as they LEAVE it. So closed curtains do not necessarily mean occupied.

    Maybe you should leave your shoes or bag or something out towards the curtains, so people can see there's something (and thus probably someone) in there.
    Or maybe you should develop an exhibitionistic streak, so you actually enjoy people walking in on you while you're naked.

  2. There's a limit to how much noise I can make while taking my skirt off :)

    When the doors or curtains don't go all the way down to the floor I always stand or leave my shoes close to the door so it'll be obvious the room is occupied. At this shop everything's all "wannabe luxurious", it looks gorgeous but the backside is the thick curtains which trail along the floor..

    It's very possible the room could not have been occupied, that someone did close the curtains after them when they left. But if I wasn't sure the room was vacant, I'd move the curtains a little and peek inside, not throw them apart like there's not supposed to be anyone in there..

    Then again, I am again getting rather used to being seen naked..
