This was a fun rejection challenge to try! Every time I would take kids to Old Navy they would all want to pet the plastic dog in the display area. I went up to the counter and said if I could be a live mannequin and stay with all the plastic people and dog. I'm fairly positive the lady thought I was beyond crazy, but I didn't mind one bit!
So I stood in the display area while a few people came in and I just smiled at them. I purposely wore Old Navy clothes so that I would blend in better. People gave me some odd looks, but I was just grateful that it wasn't a NO!
