i hate shopping
and i spawned a daughter who loves shopping. the perfect day for her is in a mall.. with all its lovely choices. i am bored by it all. when i decide i have to shop, i go and buy what i need and usually know where to find it. in and out in record time. spending endless hours at tyson corners is my daughters dream. i rarely let her endulge herself. one of the main reasons i hate tysons in particular are the aisle kiosks with their assualts as i just try to walk to where i need to go. lucky for me i can feign deafness. its easy when we are walking together, signing as we go. only once did i go off on one aggressive sales person. my daughter was walking ahead of me and a sales woman tried to catch my daughters attention. and as my daughter, oblivious to her verbality, walked on, the woman started shouting at her about how rude she was. well.. let me tell you.. don't you dare yell at any one like that if you are trying to sell something. i stopped in front of her and said, she didn't hear you she is deaf. but she kept yelling after her. and i repeated myself, she is deaf, she cannot hear you. then she went off on me. i stopped, looked at her and said, honey you are in the wrong business if you are yelling at people in the middle of a mall. and once again repeated, she is deaf, she didn't hear you. don't assume someone is rude. i hope she finds another job.
