Successful Independent Shopping Trip
As I mentioned before I was planning on having my Mom drop me at a larger shopping mall while she had an appointment. Many of you probably do things like this all the time, but I’m usually an online shopper. Although I shop alone on occasion this was for a longer span and in an unfamiliar location. I did a couple things to prepare. First thing was using double stick tape to attach a piece of dycem (I think that’s what it’s called) to the back of my phone. That way it was less likely to slip out of reach. I know they make phone holders, but sometimes I find them too restrictive. The other thing I did was make sure my card was strategically placed so if I needed assistance it would be easy to access.
It was a really pleasant trip. Store workers were more than willing to hold up something if I asked, and helped me check out. The only thing I didn’t dare do was stop at Caribou. I just knew I wouldn’t be able to get my beverage to the spot I’d be meeting my Mom and didn’t have the nerve to ask anyone to carry it for me.
Are there things you do to make excursions easier? Do you seek out assistance or wait for someone to approach you?
