Give A Short Older Lady A Hand, Will Ya?
I look around for a clerk; none to be found. I look for something in the aisle I can use to pull an item closer. Like today I tried using a back scrubber brush; all I accomplished is knocking the item down. Tall men walk right past me, even when I step on the lower shelf, try to jump and mutter loudly, "Shit!"
That means I have to hunt somebody down, and it's usually a short girl just like myself. But they're younger and step on that bottom shelf and launch themselves up with ease. I'm always afraid of breaking the shelf and that would land me in more trouble than knocking a few things down. The only one that ever helped me was a woman; taller and older, but still she helped.
I realize that clerks cannot be in every aisle, but I shouldn't have to walk the entire store looking for someone either. I suggest to anyone that helps me that they should put 'grabbers', like older people use or little step-stools in every aisle. They just giggle like I'm kidding. I most seriously am not.
