It was an evening in mid-week. My wife and I had waited until the last minute to buy a present for a wedding that would be celebrated out of state the coming weekend. We arrived at the shopping mall around 8 p.m. and made our way to the well-known department store where our soon-to-wed friends had registered their desired gift items.
After careful deliberation, we made our selection. While paying for it, we asked, “Do you have a customer service department where we can get this gift wrapped in wedding paper?”
