Buying jeans with Mom

This was another very interesting experience for me and now that I can no longer see I have to depend on Mom or any other sighted assistance whenever I go clothes shopping. I will say that on this day the sales lady was very helpful and informative, especially so when she realized that I was blind.

This is how things went. I told Mom what I was looking for. Then she and I told the sales lady. The sales lady then went to her racks and stocks to look and came back with several pairs of jeans. Mom showed me each in turn and I chose what I wanted to try on.

While I was trying on my choices the nice sales lady went back to her racks and stocks and came back with other pairs of jeans. Whenever I liked anything that I tried on, Mom would then call the sales lady to get her opinion. They both gave their opinion but it was up to me to choose. In most cases we all agreed on my choice or sometimes the sales lady would say no to my choice and I would end up agreeing with her. All in all it was a very pleasant shopping experience on that day.

This is a personal message from author Donna Jodhan
"Each time we raise our voice at someone else we are engaging in bullying! Each time we raise our hands to slap or punch someone else we are also engaging in bullying and each time we engage in actions to either manipulate or force someone else to do what we want we are also engaging in bullying!

There is no room in this world for bullying and each day we fail to take action against bullying it is another day that we allow others to bully us and our kids. Our heros and role models are the ones who have made us proud, those brave young men and women who gave their lives for us in past wars and those who continue to do so. They are not the ones who choose to be racists and those who believe that their bad behaviour in public is acceptable.

I write and record audio mysteries that are being used at such events as murder mystery evenings as well as at public awareness and team building events. I promote understanding, tolerance, and problem solving and my audio mysteries continue to be broadcasted around the world and you can listen to them anywhere! On the plane or train! In the car or right there in your home! On your i device or computer!

Please join my campaign against bullying (CAB) by supporting my efforts to keep on writing and recording!
If you truly care then you will certainly dare!"
