Comment of the Day: The Hell of Highland Village
We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.
So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning, from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.
This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.
We listed the most stressful places to shop in Houston this Christmas season, a list that included Highland Village, the fancy-ass area that's choked with upscale SUVs.

Fantastic list. All so, so true. When I was looking for a drum-shade pendant light fixture (with a secondary search for a dining room set) a while back, I made the mistake of visiting Crate & Barrel at Highland Village. I was actively inspecting what fixtures they had, CLEARLY trying to find something specific (had even busted out my tape measure), but never got even a glance from a salesperson, much less a greeting or (heaven forbid) a "Can I help you with anything?". Customer count in the store at the time? 4. They lost my business that day and forever.
