While this phenomenon typically occurs at a bar, there are a few other places where most of us wish we had them. For example:

2) The Fitting Room – The dreaded 360 degree mirror and the horrible lighting in most fitting rooms suddenly stomps on a previous fantasy we had of how good we would look in skinny jeans, or a crop top, or a fitted tee or stripes. Suddenly, we look like Adam Sandler in “Jack and Jill.”
