I get easily pressured into buying things at stores. I rarely know how to tell a salesperson "no."

I think I have a hard time doing so because I feel like I owe the salesperson something for their time and I want to make sure they get a bit of money off a commission. I recently committed to a pair of $125 running shoes because the woman at the store did this crazy scan of my huge, flat feet. 

I hate returning items. It's annoying and I feel guilty doing it, because I don't want people to hate or judge me, and I know that's no way to live life. But then, there are people on the complete other end of the spectrum who not only have no issue returning things they really don't need or want, but try to get away with returning items they totally shouldn't.

Bentley didn't really know how to feel about the whole thing, maybe she did need the money back.
