I don’t just hate it, I am actually not that good at it either.
Today I have had to go to Meadowhall to try to get something to wear. On Friday I have been invited to Silverstone on a corporate day. It’s not a driving day and I believe we will be in the Platinum Suite, so I need something semi-smart to wear.
So off to Meadowhall it was. At this point I should say that Meadowhall looks fantastic. Even with the building works that are going on, they do a great job of maintaining the experience for the shoppers. You can get an idea from the complete bits of what is going to look like.
Started in Debenham’s and there was nothing I liked. Dont get me wrong, they had lots of nice stuff but nothing I liked, so I brought some work shirts as they were on offer!
Then Burton – the same result
2 shops in and I have already had enough and am ready to go home
So it is now around 10-45 am and Meadowhall is getting busy, really busy. I can’t believe the amount of people who are there on a Wednesday Morning, its incredible. It’s not just kids either as its school holidays.
Anyway, nipped into Sports Soccer and brought some new shorts for summer. Still have not purchased what I went for!
After purchasing and paying for my shorts i left the shop which, to my huge surprise set of the alarms. I turn around thinking is it me? surly not, i have paid for everything haven’t I?
Well I can tell you it certainly was me! 4 people, including 1 security guard, coming running out of the shop shouting at me. “Stop”, “Wait There!” came the bellows. Bloody Hell I’m thinking……..
I was escorted back to the shop (all of 15 yards) with all these people looking at me. Talk about embarrassing! They proceed to go through my back, check my receipts and eventually they work out that the person on the till has left a tag on a pair of shorts I brought. It is duly removed and I am sent on my way with a brief “Sorry”.
I have properly had enough at this point.
Next its off to Next….
No clothes I like again, but I did purchase 2 new pairs of Shoes. Do you like?
That’s it, Had enough of shopping completely now….
So my adventure to Meadowhall for a shirt and a pair of trousers resulted in me purchasing a pack of work shirts, 3 pairs of Adidas shorts, 2 pairs of shoes and been treated like a petty criminal.
Not good. I should not be allowed to Meadowhall on my own and I still have nothing to wear on Friday.
Until Next Time…
