Okay--we finally get the darn thing paid for and my Mom says-you do deliver that for free correct? It seems she had seen that in the newspaper! Well the poor girl says NO--UH OH--so I calmly asked her to please call over her manager which she did. Well it turns out that you have to order direct from the warehouse-whether the cashier does it for you or you do it yourself online makes no difference. Well the manager finally decided that the easiest way to deal with my Mom whose hearing aides seemed not to be working too well for some strange reason-was to cancel the sale and then redo it by ordering direct--Yes, my Mom got her luggage (which was on a great sale) with an additional 15% off and free delivery to her house!! She even ended up with $1.17 left on the gift card! By now I was about to spit nails and needed a ladies room rather badly, but she was determined to make me look for boots because I had $50.00 Gift Cert to Macy's. When there were no boots that I could wear in the snow there all of a sudden we had to look at pocketbooks---I made a beeline for a ladies room leaving her browsing. Guess she realized I was not going to look so once I returned we headed back to the car. Think this day was over? Not by a long shot---I did manage to stop and get cat food which I desperately needed and we had a light lunch at the Outback. By this time I had handed her the GC and she needs a toaster oven--maybe, hopefully she can find one online!! Boots were still on her mind.
So off down Central Avenue I drive--I vetoed STRONGLY going into DSW but said okay to the Avenue since that was where I found a pair of boots 5 years ago (which, by now, have a hole in the sole). Nothing there. Luckily I passed a gas station with prices that she agreed with because I was almost out of gas!! All of a sudden she tells me about a store on the opposite side of Central Avenue that carries wide widths---okay--illegal left and we get to the store. I felt bad for the salesman--he must have brought out 10 pair of boots for me to try--BUT one of them actually fit and were comfortable--expensive but I really do have miserable feet to fit and these should last another 5 years or so--I do not have a pic of them--they are black, totally waterproof, zip up the front and are lined with comfy cozy material. Leave it to my Mom--she asks the guy if there is a senior discount-I told him her age and mine--so we got $12.00 off! People--ASK--you NEVER know!!
Now my Mom was happy-she got her suitcase and I got boots--so off to a grocery store where thankfully she really did not need too much this time--then to Walgreens where she has a rain check for a specific vitamin she needs to take. Well, they still don't have them in and she was driving the manager crazy--so--he told her to hold on to the raincheck and gave her a different dosage (she will have to take 2 pills instead of one)-for 1/2 price! At this point I drove her home and then got myself home to a cat who was meowing at me the second I opened the door! She was not a happy camper--Mommy was out for too many hours!!
So that was my day--I have a feeling I will be going to sleep early tonight!!
