  1. I miss being waited on in a shoe store. Now I have to find a shoe I like on a long rack of shelves, struggle to get one of the shoes free from its plastic bonds, try it on hoping the Chinese shoemaker really knows the dimensions of size 11eee and walk up and down the box store aisles for a test stroll, wondering if my old shoes are safe back there.

  2. Awkwardness, embarrassment, degradation, with no chance for redemption. Only one ‘toon combines all of these favorite elements of dark humor so perfectly. Of course I love number 3 best!!

    (It’s good the salesman is sitting as far away from her left leg as he is.)
