I am going to try and write the condensed version of my most embarrassing moments yet in a store. I'm hoping there are others out there LIKE me ?
If you are Canadian you know what store this is and how CROWDED with people and merchandise it can be (Home Sense) my most favorite store in the world. It is a miracle they didn't BAN me when this happened.
I saw this beautiful garden stake .. made to look antique .. rusty metal, and VERY heavy I found out much to my misfortune .. with a crackled glass globe, on top, as a perch to a bird on top of that .. well there were about 5 of them in shades of green and blue glass.
I bent over to retrieve one of them and as soon as I pulled it out ... the display FELL over .. smashing about three of the stakes to the floor .. SMASHED glass by "me" .. I was totally mortified .. no one came over .. all the other shoppers were in the trance that happens when you enter this store .. it felt like an eternity until I could collect myself enough to go up to a salesclerk and confess my action .. I must have been red as a BEET ..
To my great relief it was treated as a simple accident .. no blame assigned .. I felt like a kid caught in the candy jar that fell off the counter ... well .. you know the rest.
BUT ... I managed to soldier on and shop some more .. nothing less than being kicked out of the store can stop me there .. but , boy ... I am going to be much more careful , hopefully ?
P.S. Yes, I bought the frog .. and today the clogs .. sounds like a Dr. Suess book !
