Try Walking A Mile In Her Shoes

| Working | March 16, 2014

(Due to some serious back problems, I need to wear arch supports in my shoes. I found out that the shoe inserts don’t fit properly in every type of shoe, so whenever I try on shoes, I put the arch supporters in the new ones before I try them on. An employee approaches as I’m putting my supports back in my own shoes.)

Employee: “Ma’am! What are you doing?!”

Me: “Checking to see if my arch supports fit into these shoes.”

Employee: “You can’t do that!”

Me: “I’ve done it before. Why not this time?”

Employee: “You’re stealing shoe inserts!”

Me: “No, I’m seeing if my shoe inserts fit these shoes.”

Employee: *over walkie-talkie* “I NEED A MANAGER! NOW! WOMEN’S WINTER BOOTS!”

Manager: “What’s the problem?”

Me: “She’s accusing me of stealing shoe inserts! They’re mine! I was testing to see if they fit in these boots.”

Employee: “Do you have proof that you didn’t just steal them?”

Me: “I doubt you even sell this brand!”

Manager: “Let me see them.” *examines them*

Me: “I know for a fact you don’t sell these.”

Employee: “How would you know?”

Me: “They’re prescription shoe inserts! I have severe back problems. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ll be taking my business elsewhere!”

Manager: “I’m so sorry about this. Please don’t leave. I’m sure we can find you some shoes that work.”

(The manager ended up finding me some new boots and gave them to me 75 percent off. I haven’t gone back since, though.)
