My sweet hubby and I went on a date.
Our dates involve making returns, running through the drive-thru, and Sam’s.
Well our first stop was to a shoe store. I was returning the cutest boots for a larger size.
NOTE: Do not try on boots with those disposable hoses and expect them to fit well with socks when you get home.
I was having a conversation with the store manager and a lady walked by us. I got an odd feeling and I could tell the store manager did too. I grabbed my purse off the ground and I told her if she needed to go I could get along just fine. She said no and kept walking with me down an aisle.
The next thing I know, a saleslady yelled from the front of the store – “they just took ALL the boots.”
The lady who had just walked past me and a group of her friends stole tons of merchandise – including the boots in my right size, we found out later.
The manager came back inside after looking for them and came back to where I was.
I asked her “Aren’t you going to call the police?” She said “No.”
What?! It didn’t make sense to me.
This was a store that had camera all throughout and I am sure there were surveillance cameras in streets. I still don’t understand.
What more I don’t understand – is that awful feeling I had when the thief lady walked beside me.
Maybe it how the lady got real close to me without making eye contact but could tell that we noticed her. Really, I believe it was the Holy Spirit. I love how He goes before us.
AND I am super glad they did not have any weapons. This is Texas, you know?!
I walked back to where my husband was looking for Men’s shoes and he had been oblivious to anything that happened. I couldn’t help but laugh.
He came over to where I was trying shoes and I told him I needed a certain size in a certain color. That is when he had gone to the front and found the right box. BUT, it was empty. They took my shoes. Sniff.
I bought a bigger size and decided to wear thicker socks. Don’t judge. They were cute shoes.
We then went to Sam’s.
Our Sam’s closes at 8:30 not 9:00. Guess how we found out?
So we decided to hit Wal-Mart!
Did you know Wal-Mart now has self check out lanes? (Can you tell I don’t go there often?) They are fast. Unless your machine freezes up and you have to wait for the real cashier to play with your machine that involves a lot of button pushing and hitting the screen.
Seriously, I just laughed.
I love our sweet dates. Totally boring.
Blessings to you! You are loved!
