Retail clerks can be a snooty bunch, especially when they work in high-end shops. But it's rare for the snobbery to extend all the way up to management, who generally prize every customer that walks through the door.

Down under in Australia, however, it seems things are a bit different -- at least at one upmarket chain called Gasp. That's where Keara O'Neil went shopping for bridesmaids' dresses recently, at the retailer's shop in South Yarra, a trendy suburb southeast of Melbourne, only to be rebuffed by a sales clerk who chided O'Neil for her size 12 frame, the Herald Sun newspaper reports.
